Baker's Ribs is a wonderful little place in Eden Prairie. The ribs are meaty and the side dishes are flavorful. A nice option to Famous Dave's.

The brisket and chopped sandwiches were excellent but the sides seemed a little flat, quaint atmosphere and unique decorations.

This is another great BBQ place. Nothing fancy, the décor is pigs, pigs. pigs. Checkered table cloth tables, you think you are on a picnic. But the food is great. Great ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. This is a family owned business, they do their own smoking onsite. The staff are always very friendly. We have never been disappointed. We... More

It's hard sometimes to find a really good BBQ place up here in the North country. Other than making a trek to Famous Dave's which gets old. However this place fits the bill of excellent food in a down home atmosphere. We will certainly be back.

My friend and I arrived around 11 a.m. and there were people already there eating. When you enter the door on the left you come right into a deli case with all the sides in it. You place your order right there. I ordered a half rack of ribs, baked potato and Texas toast and a Coke. My friend ordered... More

While it is in a strip mall and seems unlikely, Baker's Ribs offers true Texas style barbecue. The portions are generous and the food is delicious, including the sides. The sauce may be a bit tame, but I found that to be the case all over Texas as well. Try the ribs, try the brisket, try anything they smoke. You... More

We visited this BBQ place for the first time recently. This is a counter-order restaurant with no wait-staff. I ordered the chopped pork with sides of dirty rice and potato salad. There is only one BBQ sauce and it is served on the side at the table . It was good, but is sweet with no spice kick. Potato salad... More

Baker's has a good reputation that's certainly well-deserved. It's not much to look at, but the most bbq places aren't. The portions are a good size, enough to fill you up but not make you want to skip breakfast. The combo platter is a good mix of smoked meats. The side dishes aren't much besides sides, but that's not why... More

Good BBQ in MN can be hard to come by. This place is good by TX standards. While good quality, I would not call the portions Texas-sized as other reviewers have. I had the 4 rib lunch plate with 1 side and Texas Toast for $9.25 I chose to add one more side, that and a 16oz Sprecher's root beer... More

This is one of my standbys - always good, always interesting. Self serv BBQ sandwiches, chicken, and ribs. Good sides and very nice owners. Fun to look at the pig collections throughout the building.
