“BBQ Joint”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Best bbq I've had in decades. It's spendy but worth every penny. Service is friendly, family oriented, plenty of room or you can order take-out. The entire restaurant is very clean. I've tried everything on the menu and it's all good.

“Take Out Heaven!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Stopped at the BBQ Joint on our way to our 29th anniversary vacation at a Whidbey beach house. Picked up the four-meat sampler, beans and corn bread, and ten minutes later scarfed them down with a glass of pinot noir while enjoying an unobstructed water view at our rental. We had leftovers for lunch the next day! My favorite were the ribs, and we loved the sauce. Fun servers, too!

“Best BBQ west of the Mississippi”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We found this restaurant on the web before visiting Whidbey Island. we were very satisfied with the quality of the food as well as the portion sizes. The Kentucky Derby was on while we were in the restaurant so it was great to watch the Derby while eating classic Southern Food. You will not gone wrong with the Pulled Pork, and try the Banana Pudding for desert. Great food and great staff.. We will visit again

“BBQ! I'm There!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love BBQ! So where ever I go, I always look for a BBQ place. I've been to a number of BBQ places in the Salt Lake City area and they sometimes tend to taste like each other. The Joint had a very good southern taste and so tender was the meat. The ribs were delicious and the meat fell right off the bone. One literally did fall on the floor. Man it looked so good that I was tempted to still eat it off the floor, but I didn't. (Really, I didn't). I had the three meat plate, ribs, chicken and sausage with 2 sides, beans & potato salad. The beans, ehh..were so so, but the rest was great! So dig in when you there!
