Fall-off-the-bone tender juicy slow cooked mouth-watering ribs. Corn with (authentic) bacon pieces. great food, at reasonable prices. I travel to Polson on business and can't bring myself to eat anywhere else. It's that good.

If you like BBQ this is a great place for you. I have ribs almost every place I travel to and the ribs here are some of the best around.

This is really a gem for a small town. Excellent brisket (I used to live in Texas so I do know). Prices are exceptional. By all means make a point to stop in for a meal.

At Cherries BBQ Pit we slow cook all our meat for many hours on the wood smoker with fruitwood. Everything is homemade and handmade daily, so it may vary slightly. From the rub on our meat (herbs & spices), homemade barbeque sauces to every side dish. We do it all. We have a few options for you when ordering. We have drive thru, pick up your BBQ for takeout, indoor deck dining or have a picnic outside on the lawn or at our picnic tables. Our hours are 11:00 am until sold out. Call ahead ordering is also an option, perfect when out on the lake. We are located across from the Polson liquor store just 2 blocks from the lake. Look for the BBQ flags.
