Church had a senior's dinner(as in adults...sigh. Since that is where I find myself now.) The meat and beans came from Stroud's. Both the chicken and pork were moist and delicious. Even though the sauce was on the side. A lot of places seem to have dry chicken when the sauce is on the side but not here. I didn't... More

The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite item on the menu. Stroud's is very clean and efficient with excellent BBQ.

We wanted bbq while traveling home so we stopped. Good selection on menu. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They made recommendations and we weren't disappointed. Restaurant and restrooms were clean. While we were there, they had a constant stream of cars through the drive through.

We were looking for good barbeque, so we put asked our GPS where to go. Not being familiar with the area, we just picked one out of the list. It is a little difficult to find the actual location, as the building is obscured by an orthodontic office. We are glad we made the effort. We had the Pulled Pork... More

OK BBQ. Very limited menu. Sides also ok. A bit of a pain to find the first time as the sign points to th e wrong driveway.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Everything is pretty much average here. The pulled pork sandwich is your standard and it is very tasty. As are the sides. However, it's not anything special. Very small dining area. Easy ordering for the menu board. Order at the counter...pick up at the counter. It did appear they did very well with "to... More

Very simple setup as far as menu, sides and ordering goes. You order at a counter and pick your food up from same counter. Had the pulled chicken and like most pulled chicken it was dry. The sauce was very good though. Sides of slaw and beans were pretty standard. I would recommend stopping but you won't be blown away.

The price and the food are both great. I loved the pork nachos. The atmosphere isn't great. It's definitely a tiny area to eat in, but the food is perfect and I would go again.

I was very disappointed in the service and the food. No one was smiling when we were at the window to order, the cashier said I couldn't get my BBQ sandwich with the cole slaw on the side even though it was listed as a side dish on the menu. My bun was cold, my cheese was shredded cheese for... More

Stroud's Barbeque is very good with steamy hot buns and good BBQ. Very consistent with all the other Stroud's locations.
