US 31 Bar-B-Q has been a Muskegon staple for years. The sandwiches are different than what most people think of Bar B Q's as they have their own unique sauce recipe. If you like beef, pork or ham, you'll love a Bar-B-Q here. Step it up and mix 2 or all 3 types of meat. You may need a fork... More

Stopped here today after reading reviews. Had the three meat sandwich (ham, beef, pork). Nice with a simple sauce, to me kind of a Carolina style apple chutney. Simple, good! Friendly staff. Very crowded but got instant seat at counter.

The name says it all. They have great bar-b-q's with options. Their sauce is next to none. I love their shakes and fries too!. And let's not forget the homemade pies, yum! Great service. If you are with a group your whole party has to be there before you can sit down as it is a small place. They also... More

Been enjoying the BBQ sandwiches and hand made shakes for at least 35 years! If you haven't been here yet... It's a must! Not your traditional style BBQ, but it is truly sweet salty messy perfection! My favorite is the Ham, but the Pork is probably the most popular. - P.S. you're going to want a second...they're that good!

Stop in for lunch once or twice a month. Pork BBQ extremely messy to eat, but extremely delicious. Fries are great too. Highly recommended.

They are known for their BBQ's, with a slaw on the top of them. A relish type slaw. VERY good...addictive. Kind of sweet but sour. both. The rest of the menu is kinda basic and plain. But limited, the reason for 4 instead of 5 rating.

One of my favorite restaurants to visit while I'm in Muskegon...grew up here and have been coming to Us31 since I was a small child. Now I go with my siblings and their kids and so enjoy the pork and beef barbeque sandwiches. They are still the same as when I was a small child...guess they pass the recipes down... More

This place has been in business for decades and the food is still the same and wonderful as ever! Best pulled pork bbq with cabbage slaw. Homemade pie, soups and shakes, just like the old days!! Extremely quick service too.
