Bathe us in BBQ sauce and call us brisket, it’s time for barbecue! We’ve put together a guide to the best BBQ restaurants in Edmonton. So, round up your pals, grab a lot of wet wipes, and dive on in.
The name kind of says it all. Despite what you might expect from such a classy title, this place is about as bright and contemporary as barbecue joints get. Vegetarians getting dragged along, have no fear. Some people come just for the mac and cheese!
Where: 8216 104 St NW
It’s our personal belief that a pulled pork sandwich should melt in your mouth. Memphis Blues gets us, and we’re so happy about it. Also, pro tip courtesy of Curiocity: their brunch is wicked good!
Where: 222 Baseline Rd, Sherwood Park
Go here hungry. Also, go here in a stretchy waistband. The servings are enormous, but yet somehow we keep finishing them…You might want to grab a second chair because doubling in size is a typical side-effect from a solid time at Sloppy Hoggs.
Where: 9563A 118 Ave NW
Smokehouse BBQ is like a teeny Texas right here in Edmonton. Sit under lone stars and Edison bulbs while you dive into the CBC-featured Bacon Bomb. There’s no way something called a Bacon Bomb can be bad, right?
Where: 15960 109 Ave NW
It’s certainly not the cutest place on the list. However, we think a checkered vinyl tablecloth just adds to the experience. It’s authentic, just like their slow-cooked BBQ fare. Plus, if you really need to Instagram your Smoke & Ash experience, the perfect, meaty addition to your feed (Instagram and appetite) is right on the table in front of you. Dive on in, folks.
Where: 106 Fulton Drive, Acheson
Korean BBQ is a way of life, people. Ribs, bulgogi, and noodles are a complete food pyramid and we refuse to believe any differently. Sure, it might not be typical Southern BBQ, but we’re not too picky when the meat is this damn good.
Where: 10704 97 St NW
It might not be a traditional BBQ joint in the greasy, smoky way we love. However, it’s a quality choice for slightly more upscale meat-fest. For $35, eat as much as you please, and nobody’ going to judge if you skip the salad bar (which is actually awesome, no lie). Not to mention the service is stellar and you won’t be left wanting for anything.
Where: 9929 109 St NW
This little hole in the wall has semi-regulars who don’t even live in Edmonton. It’s not flashy, but the food is super affordable, the staff is friendly, and the dry garlic ribs are ideal. Grab an order for us, we’ll see you there.
Where: 9711 118 Ave NW
