I now live out of town, but make a visit to Branding Iron a priority when I come see family. I’ve never dubbed myself a “BBQ lover,” but I crave Branding Iron like no other. All the meat I’ve had is moist and full of...More

Food was good. I thought brisket was dry. The buffet style was great for getting your sides. Smoked sausage was excellent. Very reasonably priced

We eat here semi-regularly; quaint country atmosphere with gingham tablecloth's, all of their meats and sides are outstanding! Cash only, just like it used to be. If you are in town, stop and try, you won't be disappointed

eat here often and always have left happy. Their ribs would have to be a favourite of mine. Prices are decent, this place has been here for years and has become a staple get together place for my family.
