“Hush Puppies”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Oh dear

We stopped for a drink and snack, the menu looks tempting but we weren't that hungry so decided to share Hush Puppies, deep fried cornbread and cheese balls.

Well there was some similarity to Hush Puppies. They tasted like old feet.

With our first bite my partner and i gave each other a knowing look, tasteless dry balls of tasteless dry stuff….did i mention they were tasteless and dry. Cheese? I don't think so and they were clearly reheated and not freshly cooked.

Just awful.

“Great Food and Great Price”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Loved the Pulled Pork and Beef Brisket. Everything is smoked right there and you are greeted with that nice smokey scent as soon as you walk in the door. The servings are quite large and always bursting with flavor. It's open late but manages to avoid the drunk party crowd. (Which is a big plus.)

“Best BBQ I have eaten in a while.”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Peckinpah is a great little restaurant in gastown serving Southern fare and a selection of beer and other drinks. Their food is very good, highly recommend the Brisket , pulled pork and the hush puppies.

Service was good, biggest problem for Peckinpah is seating or specifically lack of it. We sat at the bar which was OK but you look at an oven and a small busy kitchen

Drinks a little pricey.

“Nice BBQ food”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Decent quality pulled pork in here had better though. Service was ok. Not a lot of atmosphere best saved for a time when your stuck for choice or short on time.
