This restaurant has had a number of names and owners over the years and we decided to try the latest version. It is now "J&L BBQ". We met the "J" who is very personable and a very good cook. We tried the combination dinner that...More

This place was the pits - filthy and lousy food. We heard about the new cook and tried it again . . . it was WONDERFUL. Wood bbq'd meats and delicious homemade potato salad. The generous portion meant that we had enough leftover for lunch...More

We FINALLY tried this place after several trips to Snohomish. We are from the Midwest, and know it's really hard to find good bbq in the Northwest. This place though...not so great. It was really cute on the outside, and not too bad on the...More

This is a tiny joint with not much atmosphere or class BUT we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Three of us had sandwiches (too large to eat at one sitting) and one had ribs. We enjoyed the variety of traditional sides and had no complaints.

Yes, we were a bit concerned. We were planning our class reunion and a committee of five was chosen to select a caterer. We narrowed our list and made an appointment to visit The BBQ Shack in January. The food was excellent. But after visiting,...More

The BBQ Shack is interesting to say the least. We stopped here after our 4th of July drive which was a bit surprising since one family member doesn't eat BBQ that much. Being such a rare nice day for the Fourth we took our BBQ...More

I am from Texas, so I'm hard to please when it comes to BBQ here in the Northwest. But this place was actually pretty good! I would certainly go back for the ribs and cornbread. :)
