“Ya it's ok”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Was looking for some good BBQ , 5V BS is a small restaurant, order at the counter and grab a seat . Ordered the beef brisket baked beans and coleslaw . Beef brisket was fatty baked beans dry , coleslaw was very good , I would look for another BBQ place to eat before I'd stop back here. Wasn't that great for BBQ.

“Good BBQ. ”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

There are multiple reviews on TripAdvisor for this restaurant. The proper name is "5 B's BBQ".

Good food and friendly staff. Not much seating inside, but the deck is the best place to sit when weather allows. The ribs are amazing. I also recommend the "Tatornator", a baked potato stuffed with your choice of pulled pork or brisket, coleslaw, cheese, and jalapeños... You won't be disappointed! Prices are reasonable, if a little on the high side for BBQ. There are ample combination plates, sandwiches, and side choices, as well as a few dessert choices.
They will do carryout orders, so you can call ahead. They also do catering.

“Total let down”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

The building (especially bathrooms) is run down. I did not care for the food at all. My brisket was cold without much flavor. We had only one choice of BBQ sauces which was not spicy though. I'm sorry to be so harsh, but the pie was terrible.

This place came recommended to me, but I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone, not will I return.

“Great little local joint”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We've eaten here several times over the years and never been disappointed. The brisket is probably a little better at lunch because it seems like they smoke it overnight (so for supper it has been held for a while) but the brisket on the samich last evening was still fairly tender and had some nice smoke flavor and "crusty" edge. Nicely done BBQ potatoes (loaded with BBQ and fixins) as well as their "meal in a jar" (check the menu) - layers of beans, BBQ, etc. all loaded into a mason jar. Not sure where the pies are from but they taste homemade. Usually a beer special of some kind, too. At our last visit the BBQ sauce on the table had a little hear to it - we didn't ask if there was a regular and a spicy. Several hardworking youngsters behind the counter-place was pretty full on a Friday evening but you can take-out too. Fairly plain "old school" interior - not fancy - but some big tables outside too.

“Awesome BBQ.”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Probably the best BBQ in Gunnison. Ribs, pork, brisket, a large assortment of sides and desserts.
Limited seating in the colder months, but there is a large outdoor seating area in sring and summer.
They also offer take-out and catering.
