We stopped here before going to a Diamondbacks game. It was kind of a dive, but some great bbq places are like that. We ordered 2 combo plates and the cashier didn't have any idea what we wanted even though we order by number. 2...More

I am a huge BBQ fan, smoke my own, and visit BBQ wherever I travel. This place is disappointing. I had the combo sandwich/ rib plate. The ribs were very dry. It didn't seem dry from overcooking, but overdry from sitting out too long. They...More

Expected a lot better quality. The food was hot, but the sauce was sweet & hot, but very little flavor. The collard greens were salty and very spicy. Potato salad was too "soupy". Expected much better.

Arrived about 1800 for dinner and they were out of brisket. Got the pulled pork sandwich instead and it was the longest wait ever for something that is pretty much already made. Really slow and it did not seem to be because they were busy....More

I don't expect much from my BBQ Joints as far as decor goes, it's about the food after all, and sometimes the funkier the better. But an abandoned IHOP?? Sorry, we should have taken the hint. From there it just got worse, did we mention...More

Always get a rack or two ribs to go. Throw in some potato salad and greens. A family go to every other month. Too far!! Come to Laveen!
