I purchased, takeout, a 1# pulled pork special, with two large sides using a Groupon. The pulled pork was savory and quite lean, the cole-slaw good, and the fries hot and bountiful, although could have been less salted for my taste.

We kind of randomly found this place. My son was hungry for BBQ and we googled the "closest BBQ". We were VERY pleased!!The restaurant has just a few tables and seems to be mostly take out. The staff were friendly and the food was awesome....More

We enjoyed our ribs and pulled pork dinner very much. The macaroni and cheese was hot and tasty. The coleslaw was well prepared and delicious. We got a lot of food and will have enough for leftovers.

If you want the real true down-home, all day, pit-smoked spare ribs, then this is the place to come. The dining area feels like your are eating at your friends house. The person cooking the ribs is in the back kitchen, tending what he does...More

Had pretty much all of it! Ribs amazing- great dry rub. Chicken wings really fun, recommend the smoke sauce! Sandwiches great (brisket/ pulled pork) as are sides. Kids favorite is Coney Island dog and deep fried mushrooms.

I moved to the area a few years ago and was referred to Scott Jamama's for great BBQ. It was good, but not mind-blowing. But C&G's blows them away. Seriously, some of the best BBQ I have ever had, and it's just down the street.

My favorite BBQ in the Twin Cities. No ambience to speak of if you dine in. Oh, but the food! Great range on the menu and perfect food!

I am not a barbecue fan. Too much work, too messy, overbearing sauces, but my husband loves it and this is where he chose to go for his birthday meal. A very small neighborhood place where most people ordered takeout. We ordered in, there was...More
