I am not a BBQ expert so I can't say how Rodeo City stacks up with "real" BBQ. That said, the beef ribs I had the the half chicken that wife did were excellent. As were the sweet potato fries. Service was prompt and attentive. Have eaten at a number of restaurants in Ellensburg and this is the one I will return to. For those interested in rodeo the walls are decorated with Ellensburg Rodeo posters.
