We went in for some BBQ. Our meal was prepared in short-order. The worker at the register recommended the cornbread. The entire meal was great, but we have both had cravings for the cornbread since. It is a meal in itself, but is not served everyday. Go for a great meal and you might be lucky enough to get some... More

When first entering the establishment you are herded into a cafeteria style line to order your meal. The line was very slow moving ahead of me. (Only one cashier) The menu on the wall is a little hard to read while in line as most of it obstructed by the people who are in line in front of you. Once... More

Being in the territorial SouthWest, you would think the Phoenix area would have good BBQ everywhere? Not the case, at least Bryan's has made a huge dent in the BBQ market with the best brisket, pulled pork, and ribs around. When you get that hankering for BBQ, make that little trek north to Cave Creek and enjoy the excellent BBQ,... More

We went to Bryan's for lunch and I was totally disappointed. I'm beginning to think there isn't a decent BBQ place in the Valley. The ribs were dry and tough, with this sickening sauce on them. The ribs had some good smoke on them but the bark was like shoe leather. The beans were equally bad. The dining area was... More

It SMELLS great. Nice atmosphere. Overly sweet sauce. Slaw made with klamato olives, too weird. Won't be back.

Have eaten here a few times and it is just OK...catered a couple of parties from here and the last time the baked beans were inedible....very vinegary and no one ate them and I got a ton of it! I would say it is average at best.

Meatiest, fall off the bone tender ribs smoked to perfection. Beautiful bark. You'll be tempted to forego the sauce because the ribs are do delicious "naked" but if you do, you'll miss out on the most flavorful BBQ sauce you've ever tasted. You can't go wrong with any of the sides. Bryan also makes a flavorful beef brisket chili, somewhat... More
