I've been driving past Mike's Trackside BBQ for quite some time; I usually go to another place up the street. The last time I went for BBQ the other place was closed for the day, so my friends suggested this place. It's very small! The...More

The staff were nice. We walked in at 7:40 pm. They said we could eat in, but you could tell they were closing down. Got our order to go. Baby backs were a little dry, plus pulled chucked was dry. They had no brisket left.

Really good smoky ribs. Slaw was good as well. Waitress as well as chef/cook were personable and service was great. Enjoyable meal.

Had the brisket plate. Good, but the potato salad has big chunks of potato. Not my favorite. Still recommend.

This little place is so easily missed and one of the best BBQ meals we’ve ever had. Sampled the brisket, pork and ribs and all 3 were tender and juicy. Service was unbelievably quick and server was very sweet. Was sad to get full!
