You can't have BBQ in your name and not serve brisket. It's un-American. I was craving BBQ and my expectations were high after I parked next to a couple of big pits with mesquite coals burning away in them. Alas, there was no brisket on the menu. They offer a sirloin butt bbq sandwich. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't slow cooked, smokey good, melt in your mouth bbq. It's food cooked over mesquite so it's tasty. But no, this is not BBQ, Henry.

Stopped in for dinner. Hawaiian-Style Pulled Pork sandwich was really good. My fiancé had the combination plate with pulled pork and pork ribs. Sauce is different from what we have in Texas but we both liked it because it was not too spicy. Sides were also good. Service is fast. Large outdoor area but that night too cold so we sat inside cute converted house.

Henry's gets an A in every area, food, service, price, cleanliness. Love this place, you have to try the calimari for an appetizer, best ever its real not the tiny squiggly stuff, then deffinatly save room for the homemade bread pudding, if you don't like bread pudding you will still like theirs

Great BBQ joint. I love just about everything on the menu. Whenever I'm in town I make it a point to go. I usually stay downtown at the Portola hotel(on the company's dime). It is a nice 15-20 minute walk from downtown to the cannery row area where Henry's is located. Being from Ft. Lauderdale I'm no stranger to living on the water but there is something different about a walk along the water here. I guess that adds to my Henry's experience. Once you arrive you find a very small mom and pop shop. They have tables inside and outside. If you are in a rush don't even try to go. I've been when it's busy and when it's slow and dinner will usually take about an hour. This is not a bad thing. The food is totally worth it. Just know it isn't a turn and burn place. They care about what they do. Beer and wine only, no hard stuff. If you are in Monterey and love BBQ you'd be foolish to not pay a visit to Henry's. By the way he is a real guy who actually works in his own kitchen and likes talking to his customers.
