“Ribs were outstanding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

Best ribs I had in a very long time. The dry rub was outstanding. I highly recomend the BBQ when ordering. The sides were just ok.

“Fantastic smoked meats and barbeque; undiscovered in an obscure corner of Idaho.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

Generous portions of some of the best smoked meats ever to cross these lips! Terry and Marla specialize in smoked brisket, pulled pork, skort ribs (to die for), smoked turkey, and brisket chili. Steaks appear on the weekend menu. BBQ sauces are served on the side -- original (Carolina vinegar based), sweet (tomato-brown sugar based), and spicey (hot enough to krinkle the insides of your mouth like celophane). Basic side dishes include: potato salad, coleslaw, and green dinner salad. If you like desserts, the homemade apple pie would put Paula Dean to shame. Wines and microbrew beers will be on the menu shortly. Generally the Bistro sponsors live bands on the weekends and has organized a four-day music festival for this summer. Well worth the trip to thie rough-and-tumble mining town of Mullan, Idaho.
