I am in Riverside about three times a year and every time I come to Gram's Mission barbecue. The food is good and priced right.

Friday's lunch took us to Gram's. My brothers and I always meet at 1:30, so that most places we go we can have the place to ourselves or at least have the best chance for good service. Being retired, that's how we roll! Today was a good day! Alesha took great care of us and set the tone for a... More

Just the best recipes. Their meats come with a choice of BBQ sauces ad their Mac n Cheese is the homemade yummy kind, try the peach cobbler. This is picnic skull food, I love it. The seating isn't great, but worth it...

Staying in a hotel near Gram's, I eat here every time I am in Riverside. They BBQ is good, the serving sizes are adequate and the price is fair. In addition to the BBQ, the fish selections are good, as is the "late night menu".

I was very disappointed. They recommended the brisket so I tried it. The meat was dry and chewy. It comes drowning in the worst sauce I've ever tried. The coleslaw and fries were good. My husband had the hot links. They were also drowning in the sauce. He said they tasted like microwaved links with very little flavor except for... More

I try to stop off here at least once a month and it is fabulous. The food is great. Their pulled pork is great, large servings and such s personable staff makes you feel like family. I believe they have some of the best greens I have ever had! I always bring friends there because there is nothing like a... More

Classic southern BBQ served here with all the fixings; including okra! The hot links are awesome, the ribs fantastic, and the pulled pork quite good. Sticky sauce and lots of it on all items, you will need extra napkins. Not a fancy place but definitely worth a visit-pretty reasonable for a BBQ place, as well.

I was excited to try this place as I am a huge barbeque fan...however it was decidedly average. I wanted to like it -- neat spot in downtown Riverside and it has promise... unfortunately the barbeque is just average. The employees were all nice -- they just need to improve the food!

These people don't know what burnt or over cook means. The sweet potatoe pie we purchased for $12.00 was horrible. Had to toss that one in the trash.
