The food at this place was amazing. The meat on the ribs fell off the bone. The fries were the best I had tasted in a long time. Try the platter for 2. Staff were friendly and helpful

This is one of our favourite stops in Kalispell! The food is always great and so is the staff! They also offer take out and they sell their BBQ sauces and spices.

The meats are of quality and a good local BBQ spot in town. I prefer Famous Dave's to other BBQ I have tried in Kalispell.
