  • Get the small pork plate with jo-jos and baked beans. You won't be disappointed!
  • Everything is great here , you just have to Time it right. Don't order after 5 , its dry by then . I would like to see them try smoking sausage ....
  • If you value your colon and the consistency of your stool, don't get anything hotter than medium.
  • The place is actually called John Hardy's BBQ-Best Ribs in Minnesota hands down!
  • Small pork plate, crispy jo jo potatoes, choose a side (I like fried okra). Medium sauce is my go-to. But if you like it hotter, there are plenty of choices above that.
  • Pork plate! If you want more meat up the size of your plate order.
  • It was amazing
  • Pulled pork is good and smoky. Sauces are vinegar based. The lunch plate was heavy on the potatoes and light on the meat.
  • Awesome service with a smile and awesome food.
  • Pulled pork!
  • Pork and ham.
  • Everything
  • The best BBQ in town
  • Butter n bread
  • According to "The Philosopher", you shouldn't share your opinion of this restaurant until you try the brisket, which is phenomenal!
  • My friend thinks everything sucks--the service, food, and atmosphere all are terrible! However, two others call the place "not too bad".
  • Anything you order is gonna be good here.
  • The garden room is like being outside
  • Try the rack of big bad boy hot
