Our favorite BBQ restaurant in WA and one of the best places to spend time with family and friends. Very family friendly atmosphere and staff. Our favorites are brisket and salad. Sweet tea, cornbread and dessert are great as well.

We had an impromptu lunch after a short hike around Rainier, headed back to Seattle. We are always looking for pulled pork & was excited to find this restaurant in what seemed like a real out of the way area. I had the Pulled Pork plate & my husband had the Trail Boss with the Jumbo Sweet Onion Rings to... More

My 2nd visit just for the ribs. Side items that I selected (coleslaw & fries) were just so-so. Fries were limp. I prefer crisp. Location is out of the way in the industrial area which might be great for the number of people who work there. If you're a BBQ and beer person, do a take-out. No alcohol served.

This place is one of my Brother's favorite restaurants. I can see easily see why. I chose the brisket, along with some pulled pork. Must say, that I was not disappointed. Very moist and very delicious. The sides that were included were awesome. The beans are Out of my his world!! Don't miss an opportunity to dine here.

The food was good but pretty pricey for BBQ. Not much in the way of service, but no complaints about the food.

Great quality, portion, value, and service. Even the cole slaw (which most restaurants don't care about) is fresh and excellent. I could tell you about so many other things, but I'd rather you be surprised.

Small place located in an industrial area. They do a good business and their food is the reason why. The ribs are quite good and all the side dishes also. Worth the ride.

I thought the food was very good. The St. Louis style ribs were quite tasty and meaty, the brisket was a bit on the dry side (tasty though). Both meats could have been warmer, but they were fine nonetheless. The homemade fried were excellent, as was the mac & cheese. The dessert was a nice touch. I will eat here... More

Branks BBQ has quickly become our go to place for decent BBQ in the South Sound. Despite living within walking distance of another well know local BBQ establishment, I woulld crawl on my hands and knees all the way to Sumner for Branks. I especially like their brisket but over the years, I've tried almost all of their meets and... More
