Traveling west on 31 from Somerset, we had passed through Mount Pleasant. About seven miles down the road we decided to turn around and stop at Gorky's. What a fortunate decision. We were served a very cold beer while we read the menu. We decided on the roast turkey sandwich, a rack of ribs with Kansas City sauce, and two... More

We saw this place in the late afternoon and decided to stop and give it a try. With an outside BBQ going you could smell the tasty food. We were quickly met and shown to a table. Our drink orders were taken and delivered. No rush to order and had a lot of questions about the ribs and the chicken.... More

We recently ordered take out from Gorky's My husband ordered ribs. I ordered a pulled chicken sandwich platter with French fries and pasta with cheese sauce. I don't know where to begin. This was honestly the worst food that we've had in a long time and what makes it worse is it was overpriced. OK, my husband's ribs were extremely... More

I was most impressed with the service. Everyone was genuinely nice and helpful. I tried the smoked chicken, it was good. I wasn't impressed with the sides. I ordered the glazed yams, they were basically boiled yams, nothing like what I would have gotten in the South. I ordered the pasta with cheese, again, unimpressed. The dessert was the best!...

Have taken many of my family members there, some who have eaten all over the world, and they just love this place as I do. Food is amazing and portion size is large. No matter what you try, you won't go wrong. I have tried the full rack of ribs, pulled pork, an amazing pork chop (best I have ever... More

Gorky's Smokin' Grill is worth a detour or a destination if you like barbecue. I ordered a full rack of ribs and Kansas-style sauce. I got a huge portion, already cut into individual bones. These were literally the meatiest, best-tasting ribs I have ever had. I couldn't finish the dinner and had to take some home. One of the sides... More

Stopped once a while ago and enjoyed the ribs. We decided to make this a lunch stop on our way to the Laurel Highlands for a long weekend getaway. We were not disappointed! You can get your ribs or chicken with Amy of at least six different BBQ sauces. We had the Kansas City and did it deliver! I also... More

Gorky's serves some traditional food as well as some more unique items (i.e. Elk burger), and BBQ. The flavor of the BBQ dishes has a great smoke flavor. They tend to change things up, which keeps each visit interesting, in that there's usually something different on the menu which may tempt your pallet. Overall, the food (including desserts) and service... More

A friend and I had occasion to stop at Gorky's in Mt. Pleasant on a Friday evening in September for dinner. The BBQ was very good as I had the pulled pork and my friend had chicken. Both were above average as were the sides of candied yams, cole slaw, fries, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere as... More

Mt. Pleasant needed a restaurant like this. It offers unique and delectable dishes. We had a birthday celebration there this evening and everything was delicious . I've been here many times and will continue to frequent this restaurant. They've never let me down. Do not judge a book by its cover. The exterior does not reflect the fine food and... More
