Good food ūüėć
We came for dinner and all got the 2 meat plate. There is sooo much food. You definitely get your money's worth. Our brisket was pretty fatty, but the flavor was good. I highly recommend this place.

Service was very friendly, and courteous.  Alway checking ... read more

This was our first time at Pokey's BBQ and we really enjoyed it. The food was great and so was the service. I was especially pleased with the "sides" and the salad bar. Most BBQ restaurants serve the standard fare--beans, slaw and potato salad. Pokey's offers those as well as special sides that are delicious. The pulled pork was tend ... read more

If you enjoy smoked food you'll love Pokey's! Prime rib was cooked perfectly but the smoke flavor was too much for me. Excellent salad bar! I'd go back just for that!! Calamari was good, just a small serving.  Excellent service!

One of the best tasting BBQ's Ever!
There is little wonder why there are so many cars in the parking lot lunch or dinner. The brisket is amazing. That's what I would recommend.

BEST BAR-B-Q IN TOWN
if you are looking for authentic barbeque, this is the place to go. Rick does all his own smoking. We have had him do some of our Alaska halibut and salmon. We eat it sparingly cause it's so good. highly recommend you eat here.

I was surprised to find "real" bbq in Gillette being that i am from the Southern part of the US where good bbq seems to be on every corner. Pokeys is the real deal with great smoke rings on their meat, good bbq sauce and excellent side dishes.
