People's taste in BBQ vary and Benny's was definitely to my liking. Award winning BBQ, local family owned (not a chain) with really good smoked meats and plenty of vegetable choices. Seating was limited to about 25 which made it difficult sometimes getting in during...More

I'm usually pretty tough on BBQ joints but this one's alright. The pork was really tender and I love their sauce- just the right amount of sweet & spice. Though their hot BBQ sauce isn't really that hot. The portions I thought were a little...More

Cold Creek seems like your neighborhood sit-down restaurant, but it is actually a poor excuse for food and service. Not only is the portions small compared to the price, but the service is always terrible! We went on our lunch break and they were super...More

Great BBQ, we've had Benny's/Cold Creek BBQ several times, always great. Well smoked, several good sauces, killer sides (CORN NUGGETS!) and decent portions for the price. Even the toast is great! Dang, now I'm hungry again!

The sign outside says it is formerly Benny's but is now called Cold Creek Bar-B-Que. It is also just down the street from where it used to be. The new location is a huge upgrade. There is lots of room to sit. Half the seating...More

Benny's used to have GREAT bbq and "to die for" lima beans! I admit, I haven't made it over there recently so I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt from before:-)

Very tasty barbecue. Food came out quickly. Great amount of portion for the price. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to go out of their way to make sure your meal was good. I had the shredded beef sandwich and fries. Next time, I...More

Would be 5 out of 5, but place is too small for big time. Just west of a defunct Food World in a stripmall (as of 4-14) this small storefront place with maybe 6 tables in and a picnic table out, was great. Special was...More
