BJ’s Nevada Barbecue Company has been a favorite of locals and visitors for more than 25 years. Famous for ribs that have won multiple Best of the West awards, this spot does bacon phenomenally, and the pulled pork is out-of-this-world. Never miss a chance to devour the Kick-Ass Fries, topped with hand-pulled pork, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and more. BJ’s serves homestyle breakfast every day of the week so you get can your day started right.

Located downtown, Men Wielding Fire is a top destination for high quality BBQ in a casual atmosphere. Grab a few friends on game day and watch on the big screen without breaking the bank, as you’ll find a variety of juicy and slow roasted meats at prices that are incredible for the amount of food you get. On warm days, diners who choose to enjoy their meals on the patio can watch the chefs pull out fall-off-the-bone meats from the smokers.

We Love The: Rosemary House Rubbed Chicken, Deep Fried Candy Bars

Carolina Kitchen & Barbeque is a no-frills BBQ haven. Whatever meat you choose, you’ll be able to taste the smokiness infused during the cooking process with every bite. Although it may seem a bit sinful at first, you will not regret adding one of their five flavor-packed sauces (some of which have won many awards) to give you the opportunity to customize your flavors and add distinct complexity to each meal.
