We were there with another couple and the first surprise was the smoked ice tea, everyone in our party wrinkled their noses but I had to try it. It was great! I had a Rubin and the others had the pulled pork. The food was great and the waiter was very good. WE were there early for lunch but the... More

It's been a while, as we were previously disappointed here. This time we both had smoked turkey sandwiches. Very outstanding and great smokey flavor. We shared sides of coleslaw, a unique non-mayo flavorful delight, potato salad, nicely done , and baked beans (average..but better with added BBQ sauce) Service was very good. Since it was Saturday afternoon, this was one... More

My last review of Briquettes was very positive. Unfortunately, times have changed my opinion. Okay. I understand take out orders can get screwed up once in a while. But these guys are consistent at forgetting items. My friends ordered take out recently. The wife became very ill after eating. Signs of food poisoning. So, the next day, her husband returns...

I was told it was one of the best restaurants in town. The smell was heavenly, and we were drawn in. While the food was not inappropriately priced, it was not a cheap meal. The barbecue was not outstanding. It was OK. They have a large patio which would be wonderful when the weather is right. I would not recommend... More

Stopped at Briquettes twice during our visit to Ashtabula. Our first visit was for lunch with friends. Being someone who does not consume meat, a BBQ joint is obviously not the best place to go for lunch. However, the house salad was fresh and crispy, no complaints. The mac-n-cheese ended up having what looked like shredded or chopped brisket so... More
