Ok I would have never explored this place unless recommended it, so I gave it a try on Saturday night. I must say, I am glad I did because Podnah's definitely is a good BBQ joint. First of all, we went in the peak hour...More

Best brisket ever (and we've tried alot of BBQ)! The brisket was juicy and succulent, didn't need a knife to cut. There was a nice bark and smoke present.

What surprise to find a BBQ pit so far away from the four famous regions - KC, Texas, Memphis & Carolinias! Very, very tasty. I had the Pitboss, a huge sampler of pulled pork, brisket, ribs and sausage - along with two sides AND a...More
