Definitely not a place you would drive by and say "that looks good let's stop there for lunch". Curtis barbecue is an old bus that has been converted into a kitchen. It has clearly seen better days. Meals are eaten under a shelter that has likewise seen better days although when I was there there were a number of new... More

Some friends & I decided to stop by & bring some BBQ home for dinner, as I had been here before some years back & it was good. Not this time chicken & pulled park were over cooked, & dry. The ribs were ok as was the coleslaw. The gentleman who was playing music that day was great though. Nice... More

First, a vinegar based sauce only. Wood fired ribs and chicken. Lots of sides. Picnic tables, some covered. Play area. Portapotties. Curtis is the best. Friendly. We come monthly and split a rack with some corn muffins. Bring our own drinks and have a great lunch. Yeah it can be pricey but good food is worth it.

Having heard good reviews, we opted for ribs at Curtis' BBQ rather than at 99. Bad choice. Ribs were dry and tough and didn't seem like they had been cooked today. They really needed some sauce but I couldn't bear to use the thin, icky sauce they offered. The coleslaw had cucumbers in it and that is all I could... More

We ordered ribs; very straight forward, no rub, thin side of meat is dry. Sauce is vinegar based and with a good kick of heat, which my husband enjoyed immensely. Do not particularly like this kind of sauce, I prefer sweet and hot a la Memphis style. Staff ok, there's a lot of seating, place has good ambiance, helps that... More

Outdoor summertime eating. Messy on paper plates, I don't care for the style of BBQ that they serve but others might rate it more highly

I made a special ride to eat trip to check this place out because of its reputation. The meat was tough and dry. A few months later I was back in the area so gave them a second chance. I figured everyone has a bad day now and then. But the results were the same. I won't be back

The BBQ at Curtis's is very good. My wife loves BBQ and loved Curtis. Compared to what is available in the area it is excellent. I do not particularly like BBQ and rated this as average - thus an average of very good. A bit too rustic and casual for me but my wife enjoyed the sauce very much.

I have been going here 35 years sense he first opened in his little camper. I love the food and it's not fancy but best BBQ in the world, all cooked out side on an open fire. The beans were homemade you can't beat that for the price and was given lots of food.
