Branded 72 has some fantastic BBQ meats (I got the sandwich, so I can't vouch for the ribs) and the sides, as mentioned by other reviewers are great. Because of this quality, the prices are a little high for lunch, but you also don't leave feeling hungry. Plus, you can customize your sandwich with a variety of sauces, condiments and peppers if you are so inclined. The decor befits a BBQ establishment. When I went, they weren't very busy at lunchtime.

I had high hopes for Branded 72 as a fellow gym buddy loved it. We had first tried Ring of Fire pretty close by on East Gude Drive Rockvile and had liked it. See review. So we were up for some comparison and what do you know - they do not compare. Our dinner at Branded 72 included ribs, pulled chicken and various sides. The constant was that in every case, the execution - not necessarily the ingredients - was poor. The ribs tasted of smoke, decent sauce but they were downright greasy - like they had been sitting for awhile. The fries were fresh made, hand cut - but greasy (could be the frying temperature was too low), the cole slaw was fresh tasty but drenched in liquid, the texas toast looked and tasted like soft wonder bread and last but certainly not least - the greens were bland, tasteless and included some unrequested grit (Try washing them next time before cooking). Wife did not especially like the pulled chicken, nothing special. Bottom line - how about retraining the kitchen staff.

Great barbeque. Tended meat with great smoked flavor. All the sides are fresh and homemade and piled high. The $10 sandwich platter was more than enough food. Sauce bar with several different choices. Highly recommended.

Liked the fries and drinks - the brisket sandwich was ok - hot and prepared in front of us - not much on customer service - kind of own your own once your order!

I didn't love it. It came highly recommended by a colleague from North Carolina so I approached it with very high hopes. The brisket was very good but the baby backs and sausage were only ordinary. The Texas toast was not worth the calories.

Top it off by it being cafeteria style and the cashier setting new standards of slowness in getting the customers thru the line while their food was still hot just didn't make for a good experience for me.
