We have eaten here a number of times over the last 35 years. The place is an institution. They do so well that they still don't (have to) serve alcohol. The prices are beyond fair. Service is excellent. We had to wait 25 minutes on...More

The food is delicious. Service is good. Very family oriented. The barbecue chicken and pulled pork are favorites of my family. The potato salad is good too.

We were told to go there and so glad we listened. It was great. They had the best coleslaw. You can go outside and see the meats cooking. Be sure to go there.

Don't be discouraged by a busy parking lot, this restaurant is huge inside and the service is quick if you're in a hurry. BBQ chicken is the best!! Maybe better than Chiavetta's and definitely better than Stern's. This place is a great road trip stop.

Being from Texas, I'm always fairly leery when trying barbecue outside of Texas, Tennessee, etc. But, to my surprise, we were pretty pleased with what we received at Brooks'. Once we arrived, we were quickly seated by the hostess. Our waitress made it to our...More

I've eaten here regularly since moving to the area in early May. Their BBQ sauce is excellent; some of the best I've ever had. Their meats are cooked over charcoal and as good as any you might have had over the same... More
