“Good food, fun experience”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

I was in Columbus for a day on business and read the reviews on here and decided to find it and give it a try. First it was packed when I got there so I figured it had to be good. It is quite rustic and the staff, while friendly, moves quickly so know what you want to order and be ready. The food was brought out quickly. I had 2 chipped sandwiches and a sweet tea...and it was sweet, the way my grandmother used to make it...wonderful. The sandwiches were good with bbq slaw, medium sauce and pickles. I wouldn't call it the best or excellent but definitely worth a visit and I'm sure I'll be back. Oh, and 2 chipped sandwiches and a regulard drink for under $3.50 is unbelievable!

“Can't Be Contrarian About This One”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

The meat is beyond reproach. I can't speak to the 'dogs, cause who orders tubesteaks in a bbq place anyway? Sauces are tasty, and not mustard-based. The Brunswick stew is excellent for a stew not featuring rabbit or squirrel. Order a chopped plate, don't fool with sammiches. The only two possible gripes I might have are that (I think) they only take cash, so plan ahead, and at lunchtime the parking lot can be a little like a white truck smash-em-up derby.

“Best "Q" in Columbus PERIOD!”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

if you're new in town or just passing through and have a hankering for some good Q travel on down to River Roadto Clearview barbecue and look no further!

Talk about excellent barbecue at an excellent price!

For those of you that abstain from meat or pork (I feel for ya) however the tater salad and other sides are excellent as well so fear not you won't leave hungry!

Probably one of the only restaurants where you will see men in business suits standing in line next to those that almost look homeless.

So come hungry but be prepared to leave stuffed and smelly as a smoked pig!

“Rustic & Quaint”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

If you're in Columbus or Phenix City area, be sure to go to Clearview BBQ. Family owned for many years. Best BBQ in the area. Inexpensive, too. Very generous with their meat on your sandwich. Best brunswick stew. Don't recommend the hot dogs/scramble dogs. Chili is too greasy. Many country singers have their autographed pictures on the wall. If you have to use the bathroom, go somewhere else. This is a local's place & the bathroom ain't pretty! We deliver meals on holidays for the disabled, & they like this BBQ & brunswick stew. They insist on it !!
For dessert, go across & up the street one block. Find Golden Donuts. Ain't pretty, either, but another "best" in town. Order donuts & pastries at the take-out window.
