I don't think there is anything on their menu that wouldn't be 100% enjoyable, The food is outstanding, and the staff is great ! You have to get the fresh pork skins, I love them anytime they are fresh and theirs are piping hot !...More

Everyone has their own favorite way to eat BBQ - some like saucy/some dry rub. This is a dry spot but the sauce is right there on the side (and good!) for you to add how much or little you want. I don't like ribs...More

If you're looking for the whole BBQ magilla, so to speak, this is the place---huge menu, range of choices, all delicious! Plus, you can't feel the authenticity of a real-deal Q house all around!

Good old fashioned barbaque. Ribs are my favorite but you cannot go wrong with ant choice. I love the pulled pork sandwich with slaw. Only way to eat a pork sandwich, I take all my friends here.

OMG one of the best places to get BBQ! The only negative thing I have to say is the place is small, BUT the line does move quickly.

In a town where BBQ outfits proliferate and anywhere you are there are probably a dozen within a five minute drive, the Commissary continues to excel. I think ive patronized the Commissary for forty years and it's changed little, if at all, over those decades....More

Finally tried the ribs, chicken, and shoulder from here. It was filling and good. Not the best, but in a pinch, I'd definitely go back. The ribs were plentiful, meaty and had a nice smoke to them. The shoulder was kind of bland but then...More

I am not sure how this is ranked so high in BBQ restaurants for the area. It is a small place that is a little confusing upon arriving. They have the take out orders up front and you really do not know what line to...More

Didn't really see anything authentically German there. It may have been settled by Germans but not much left of that, that I could see.
