I had heard great things about their former location and they were in transition last time I was in town, so I FINALLY got to try Joe’s! Brisket, rib tips & pulled pork all perfectly cooked and the mac&cheese, beans and cornbread were excellent too!

I love good BBQ and it’s hard to find in the north. This is the real deal for slow smoked goodness! The smoke ring on the ribs and the dry rub were perfection. They don’t cover their great work with sauce so there is no...More

Joe's is by far the best BBQ restaurant in Green Bay -- and ranks right up there as one of our favorite overall restaurants. Everything we've had has been excellent. Try it -- you will not be disappointed!

Best BBQ in Green Bay, awesome pulled pork tacos and amazing brisket! Highly recommend, but you need to get there early as they do run out.

In town for a trade show and a colleague recommended it. The brisket was pulled/chopped as opposed to sliced how I prefer it but it was really good. They had a great selection of sauces and various side dishes. Prices are very reasonable

Smoked meat is gluten free and our regular BBQ sauce is gluten free. But we do use bread for sandwiches. If you stick with any meat, onions and pickles with regular BBQ sauce it will be gluten free.
