The BBQ Restaurant In Small-Town Minnesota That Will Give You A Taste Of The South
Minnesota probably isn’t the first state you think of when you picture good BBQ. It’s true that we aren’t quite up to the level of Texas, Missouri, or the Carolinas, but we have a few restaurants that can hold their own. There’s one in particular that really gives you a taste of the South. Located in small-town Minnesota, its hometown charm combines with amazing, smoky BBQ flavor to give you some of the best-tasting BBQ in the Upper Midwest.
Bayport BBQ is located in the small town of Bayport, Minnesota. Bayport has a quiet downtown area...
...that is home to this often bustling restaurant. You'll know you've come to the right place when you reach a blue storefront strung with lights.
Bayport BBQ is so good that even Food Network stopped in for a visit to film
Divers, Drive-Ins and Dives.
The menu is full of mouthwatering Texas-style BBQ. It really doesn't get much better than the smoky, savory flavors on offer here.
Your food will be served in a bright yet cozy dining area. A gorgeous brick fireplace is the centerpiece of the room.
Lining another wall are photos of the musicians who have played here.
All in all, it's exactly the kind of homey place you would expect to get such incredible food.
The pork spare ribs are a popular menu item. Other favorites are pulled pork sandwiches, sausage, and beef brisket.
You can't leave without trying a few sides, too. Classic BBQ side dishes include coleslaw, baked beans, potato salad, and more.
The restaurant has even been known to serve up holiday specials. In the past, they have hosted St. Patrick's Day meals and Thanksgiving feasts.
A great way to try a little bit of everything is by going during the buffet. The lunch sandwich buffet runs Wednesday through Friday, and the full buffet runs on Saturday and Sunday.
Stop in for a taste of Southern cooking. You will not leave hungry.
Bayport BBQ is located at 328 5th Avenue North in Bayport, Minnesota.
