Bryan's BBQ has got to be the best BBQ place in the north valley! Everything there is amazing. I specifically love the pulled pork sandwiches. All of their sauces are absolutely incredible.

Being from KC, we know BBQ. Stopped here for lunch and chowed on some brisket and pulled pork sandwiches. Was not disappointed. Great lunch stop and Cave Creek filled with unique shops!

The ribs had a very good smoke flavor but were a tad on the tough side. The brisket was tender and lean and again had a good smoke flavor. The cornbread is the clincher as it may have been the best I have ever had at a BBQ joint as most BBQ places seem to stick to sliced bread and... More

This is a good three star barbecue restaurant. It is a self-service restaurant. You order at the counter and they call out your order when it is ready. You pick up your order and carry it to your table. I ordered the two meat plate with two sides. The brisket was nice and moist but so moist that it tasted... More

We loved this casual BBQ place within walking distance of our resort. We tried BBQ pulled chicken and beef brisket. Both were excellent, but I am still dreaming about the pulled chicken. Nice outdoor eating area. I loved the casual atmosphere for good BBQ and a beer.

My family and I are local Creekers, and probably eat at Bryans at least once a month. Their brisket, whether on a bun or by itself, is the best I've had in Arizona. I travel quite a bit, throughout Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, and Bryan's brisket even beats some notable Texas bbq places. Bryan's brisket is tender, usually moist,... More
