Did not expect much in the way of good barbecue in North Dakota but was pleasantly surprised. The brisket and ribs were pretty good. The chicken was a bit on the dry side but could be fixed with sauce. The sides and other main dishes were also good. We will go again. The family/group BBQ meals provide a lot of... More

Came to Dickinson for the weekend and googled a few restaurants. Seen this had a decent reputation and can't pass up BBQ. It said it opened at 11 am and we arrived at 11:25. There was 8 others in there. We were seated right away but took 14 mins to order our drinks. After she brought our drinks took roughly... More

Unfortunately their smoker was not working so we couldn't get ribs or chicken, but the pasta dish I had was excellent. The atmosphere here is really cool.

Enjoyed a great meal here in August. Place was packed and busy, during the dinner rush. Our waitress, Kayla, was phenomenal. Despite having several tables, including one large table consisting of several "high maintenance" customers, Kayla was continually on top of everything and making sure our drinks and meal were perfect. Was surprised to know, she had just recently started... More

Worst barbecue pulled pork I've ever eaten.It was so dry, it felt like i was eating dry wood chips, and the service started out good, but went to bad, in a hurry. My Mom ordered a hamburger and said she liked it though. The waitress brought me my bill and never came back, to pick up my CC, so 15... More

Mixed results for us at this breezy, noisy BBQ joint near the university. I was quite pleased with the pulled-pork BBQ platter, but my wife was not nearly so happy with what she got when she ordered a "bratwurst." It was very unlike other brats we've had (and there have been many), really more of an oversized hot dog on... More

I had the big kahuna chicken wrap and it was excellent. Free peanuts and craft beers. Staff were very friendly and accommodating

I was looking forward to having ribs. They were average at best. Very dry and only warm. I was a bit disappointed.

Nice place to get some BBQ. Not to be mean, but the BBQ was average at best. I had just been in TX a couple of weeks prior and JD's just was not up to the challenge. JD you need to keep that brisket a little more moist. To be fair, I would go back to make sure that I... More
