We went for dinner on a family road trip and it couldn't have been better. From my daughters burger to my slop bucket, it was fantastic. Beans were great and the brisket and pork were on point. Don't change a thing folks!!

Very disappointing! I ordered a chicken dinner with macaroni salad and corn on the cob as my sides. I also ordered a slice of pecan pie. The chicken was very dry and had very little flavor. I like moist thoroughly cooked chicken like Brooke's, Giffy's...More

Barbecue has been a staple of American culture, it's a subculture with wide variation between regions, and this place offers many of them. We love it, from the food to such casual atmosphere, strongly recommended!

The lines are always long to order but the food is good. About $20 gets you a main dish and 2 sides. I got salmon and my husband got combined brisket and ribs. The cashier wasn't particularly friendly but fortunately we just order and go.

I've been to PJ's twice with my girlfriend. The first time we had an order of ribs and an order of wings- they were pretty good, but not great. Went again on a nice summer night because it seemed like a seasonally appropriate thing to...More

We got ribs, baked potato and Saratoga chips. Ribs were tender. Choices of sauces were a nice touch. We got it to go which left the chips soggy by the time we got home, but not their fault. Potato had no trimmings, but I suppose...More

Stopped in before the Joe Bonamassa concert today with my brother. Fantastic barbecue. We had a sample of everything offered between my brother & I. We were very satisfied & know where we're stopping before a concert on our next trip.

The PJ's BAR-B-QSA story begins in the mid-1960s, when Carolyn and PJ became high school sweethearts in their hometown near Buffalo, NY. They married, graduated together from college and became elementary school teachers. They began a small catering business out of their home and spent their summer vacations doing barbeques and county fairs. Eventually, they bought and operated a seasonal barbeque restaurant, while continuing to teach. They finally stopped teaching to devote their full attention to operating PJ's BAR-B-Q. Over the years, PJ, Carolyn, and their son Johnny added the country's regional barbeque favorites to their menu. They went on several barbeque road trips to make sure they were authentically representing these regional favorites. PJ's BAR-B-QSA now operates year-round, featuring barbeque from Coast to Coast. If you'd like to experience America's time-honored regional barbeque favorites without traveling across the country, you can take "A Taste Tour of American Barbeque" right here at PJ's BAR-B-QSA. Happy Trails!
