Stopped for lunch with a group of guys we were working with today. Had the brisket sandwich. Brisket was excellent as well as the service.

Its been said that BBQ is one of the only true American forms of art, and sadly, the valley isn't really known for its great BBQ. However, that doesn't mean the valley doesn't have its fair share of great BBQ joints, and The BBQ Company Grill and Catering is one of those joints. I have visited The BBQ Company Grill... More

The quality of food is really high, but I consistently find the service is slow . Waitress took over 10 min to get our order. Once order was placed food came quickly but philly brisket was heavy on bun and light on the brisket. Delicious brisket.

The pulled pork and brisket are both amazing. Try the potato salad and don't miss out on the cornbread. This place gets busy and parking is limited, but worth the wait and extra effort.

I didn't know this place existed until co-workers brought me there. Menu is pretty varied so you don't have to eat BBQ, you can even get meatloaf. The selection should satisfy most everyone. The food is really good. My only complaint was that the place is really loud during lunch. It's a busy place and the open floorplan allows everyone's... More

Let's forget about the food...for a second, the staff including the owner, Andy, were welcoming and friendly and just made my meal extraordinary. Now let's talk about the food! Wow, the Dynamite brisket sandwich was remarkable. A myriad of SW flavors and with a bbq twist. Tortilla chicken chowder is a delicious meal unto itself. The jumbo wings are very... More

Go and expect a wait unless you get their early. The place draws a crowd. The brisket and pulled pork were both tasty and had just enough spice to kick in the flavor. The cowboy beans were also very good. Service can be spotty at best. The place is busy and packed.

Looked for a some good BBQ while in town for lunch and this was close and rated well so we have it a shot. Long story short. Service was good considering how busy the place was. The food on the other had was bland at best. Over cooked or seemed to be rewarmed. Both my business associate and I only... More

I know BBQ and I'm pretty sure the pork and brisket we ordered was re-heated in the microwave. It came out CRAZY hot in the little dishes and was kind of tough and chewy. The flavor profiles were good and I liked the hot bbq sauce they had. The baked beans were ok - nothing too special. I will say... More

I have been here many times, being that work is just down the street. The food is "comfort" style, with lots of options, sandwiches, salads, and of course great BBQ. Don't miss the fish and chips on Fridays.
