CD's is by far my favorite place to eat on the Palouse. Everything is delicious: From the pulled chicken and pork to ribs to jalapeño poppers! If you like meat, there is no better place to eat!

I have eaten at barbecue joints all over the state of Idaho. This is by far my favorite place to visit. The ribs are amazing the sides are very well done. I have also had the pulled pork and the chicken which is awesome. The atmosphere is Classic back alley BBQ joint. One of the most amazing things about this... More

Very casual atmosphere, a regular one of a kind restaurant with great food and service. The BBQ was mostly pulled type and the sauce was great.

Never been big on trivia nights and such, but honestly it was SO much fun with the family I had no idea that I would like it as much as I did, and the whole family really got into it and loved it. Food is good, recommend simple pulled pork, sauce is great, baked beans and potato salad is good.... More

The ribs here are great. It is a rustic place to eat and you can get take out as well as catering. We will be back.

The brisket! I've eaten here three or four times a year when visiting my daughter at U of I. Now, my husband and son expect take-out to be brought home! It's that good. M

We just moved to Moscow and this is the very first place we ate at! I got cajun links and husband got a 2 meat plate with chipped beef and another kind of sausage (don't exactly remember the type). We both really enjoyed our plates and even had more than enough to take home! Their sweet tea is definitely sweet,... More

This bbq is fantastic. The portions are huge. Love the thicker, spicy sauce. Good variety of sides. I usually get this to go as their eating area is small and usually packed.
