These 8 Hole In The Wall BBQ Restaurants In Montana Will Make Your Tastebuds Go Crazy
Have you ever pulled up to a restaurant you were so excited to try, only to wonder if you were making the right decision? These Montana BBQ joints are far from fancy, but the food is always finger-lickin’ good. If you spot one of them when you’re hungry, don’t keep driving.
1. Bar 3 BBQ, 215 N 7th Ave., Bozeman
Inside this simple building is some of the best BBQ you'll ever have. Their brisket sandwich is out of this world.
2. Long Riders Bar-B-Que, 110 Main St., Stevensville
At Bar 3, you order at the counter, pick a seat (or get it to-go), and within minutes you're enjoying some of the best BBQ ever. Their Belgrade location is equally as tasty.
3. Ray J's, 2 N 1st St-HWY 2, Malta
Everyone in Stevensville knows that this is THE place to go for the best spareribs and sandwiches ever.
4. Blue's BBQ, 523 Hilltop Rd., Billings
You might assume a BBQ join located at a gas station wouldn't be all that great, but Blue's BBQ is definitely one of the top spots in town to go for ribs and brisket.
5. Bad Betty's Barbecue, 812 Front St., Helena
Are you the type to avoid food trucks because of any preconceived notions? Forget them all and run, don't walk, to the Bad Betty's setup. Their southern-style BBQ is unlike anything else you'll find in Montana.
6. East Shore Smoke House, 35103 Mt. Hwy 35, Polson
Before we're chased by an angry mob, allow us to clarify: The East Shore Smokehouse is NOT an actual hole-in-the-wall. It has a charming interior and peaceful patio to enjoy while you devour the delicious BBQ. But if you were just passing by and weren't aware, the unassuming exterior could definitely throw you off.
7. Cherries BBQ Pit, 105 2nd St E., Polson
Stop by Cherries and see why so many travelers flock there for takeout BBQ on their way to Flathead Lake. You can also enjoy your meal at one of their backyard tables.
8. Buckaroo Bill's Ice Cream Parlor & BBQ, 24 Canyon St., West Yellowstone
The portions are hearty and delicious at Buckaroo Bill's, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to save room for ice cream. Come see why this little eatery is a favorite stop for tourists en route to Yellowstone.
