“Great option in Boulder City.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a great new option in Boulder City. They have authentic BBQ. We took home a family pack which had some of everything along with cowboy beans and Mac and cheese. I hope they do well as this is a welcome addition to the local options. Go there. (Hours are limited so check ahead)

“Some of the best BBQ I have ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I have been to many states and had BBQ many times and Fox BBQ can hold up to all of them. The sides are amazing, the meat is cooked to perfection and if it weren't for my ever expanding waistline I would eat there more often.

Hi Sarah!

Wow -- the BEST BBQ you've ever had!! Now THAT'S what we like to hear!!! We're so sorry for the delay in replying to your review from May! We've been so busy at the restaurant that we've neglected our Trip Advisor page...but no more!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we're glad you enjoyed our food. We COULD always serve you the BBQ chicken sandwich without the Texas Toast and agree to tell your waistline that it's really healthy, high-protein food, right? YES!

We'll be in Bicentennial Park this weekend catering Movies in the Park - so if you make it up there, we'd love for you to say hi! - Kelly & Dan Fox

“Fantastic barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

This is a very simple but also very clean restaurant with throw away plates etc. but the staff are excellent, - kind & helpful and the food is absolutely fantastic. My husband had ribs which were great the next day too & I had a superb brisket sandwich, - the flavors were soooo good.
Oh and there was good beer on tap available in pitchers too.
There is a big take out trade. I wish we lived closer.

“Oh Yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

This place puts out the BEST ribs I have ever eaten. The brisket was great also, but the ribs! Small eat in area now, or take out. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

“The food is delicious!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013 via mobile

A friend treated us to a feast from Fox Barbacue. I can't say anything about price our ambience since our friend got it to-go and brought it home. I can talk about the food because she brought a variety, and EVERYTHING was delicious! We had Chicken Tacos, Pork Tacos, Pork Ribs, Chicken, Pulled Pork Sliders, Mac n Cheese, and Potato Salad. Two kinds of sauce, regular and spicy.
The Mac n Cheese was creamy and had just a hint of "hot" to spice it up. The ribs were tender inside and just crispy enough outside. The Chicken was moist. The Sliders were just "yummy in my tummy" good. I just can't get over how good it all was. No negatives at all.
Next time we visit, I plan on eating at the restaurant so I can review the price and ambience.
