“BBQ Simmers and Sparks - A Winner!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This spot nestled in the middle of an historic mining town will blow your BBQ filters with the first bite. Their BBQ sauces won second prize in a national cook-off competition and are absolutely to die for. I loved my pulled pork sandwich and my husband loved his Tri -Tip dish. You get a choice of a side -both were delicious. We preferred the Montana Gold BBQ Sauce, but there are plenty to choose from. Seating is Western Style at beautiful pine tables & chairs. Portions are so large you will take some home to enjoy again!

“yummy BBQ”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

The prices were very reasonable, and the food was tasty. The atmosphere was OK and it is a order at counter plac and grab your own drinks kind of place.

“Still "Smokin"”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Visited this location twice during a recent Brew Fest & music event. The small town was packed and the organizers of the Brew Fest indicated that they were overwhelmed with the turnout. We had excellent ribs, pulled pork and tri-tip barbeque . . . tender, flavorful and excellent sauce . . . and the service was snappy and friendly, even with the large crowd.
Noticed that they continue to win local barbeque competitions and we can see why. Latest was last month.

“Surprisingly fresh!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Good BBQ. Montana is not a BBQ state. This is lovingly smoked and held nicely so that its still moist upon service. No free cups of water. You must buy it by the bottle. Irritating policy if you ask me. If I'm being critical I'd say they should serve the BBQ sauce on the side, let the customer meter the amount of sauce on the smoked meats. While compared to chain restaurants i.e. Dickies, Famous Dave, UpNSmokin is much fresher and much more moist and tasty. I would go back in a instant.

“MUCH better than expected”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

My husband is a AVID fan of Bar-B-Q and is usually dissatisfied at the many restaurants we've been to for that type of meal. This restaurant was a real treat for him. Okay, me too. :-)
