This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.
As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!
left out a word, should have said ribs are very meaty and not too fatty
very meaty ribs with good flavor and too much fat.
Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!
So good! Nightlife used to be kind of lame until they opened the Hot Pig. It's rockin!
Excellent pulled pork but all else disappoints. Stopped going there when I had had enough of the owner's attitude - if I wanted the New York "tude", I would live in Manhattan.
I am addicted to the messy fries, and smoked turkey sandwiches and the wings. And I agree with the dude above me the salmon is AMAZING.
I was excited to be taken here by my Fiancee as I am from the South and recently moved here and was craving good BBQ. Sadly, I did not find it at Mr. K's. The meats were average and the sides were incredibly bland. Wasn't thrilled at the thick slice of plain white bread that accompanied the meal as well. Lots of flavors missing at Mr. K's.
Like the campbell locale - Kolb is unimpressive in comparison.
I don't understand why people rate this place so high. I ordered a pork sandwich, and it was thin, shaved slivers of meat suspended in an oversweet, gelatinous sauce. Worst barbecue I've ever had. Maybe I caught them on a bad day but that was my experience.
Have driven by twice recently and appears place has closed down.....
Delicious. Love them. Keep smokin' the Best BBQ in Tucson
While there are not a lot of real good bbq joints in Tucson, Dave's may be the best in terms of consistency. We went here Saturday, March the 5th and it was a good as the last time we went which was a few months or so earlier. Pulled pork sandwiches are excellent.
We finally went here and both had combo plates with chicken and pulled pork. Verdict: The meats were just so so. Brush Fire lacked that quality, fresh-cooked favor you'd expect at better BBQ houses. The meats were rather soggy and their sauces do little to make things taste better. In fact, we'd advice you to order your meat without sauce. This way it won't be swimming in it. Simply add your own afterwards. And the sides? OK but nothing to write home about. But at just $10.50 a plate, we can't complain too much.
Having tasted everything on the menu including all of the sides, this is as good of quality bbq you will find in town. Ample portions, melt in your mouth brisket, great turkey, and their salmon is terrific.
The best BBQ restaurant in our region. Sadly, it is constantly overlooked due to its location (although it's location is specific because of the adjoining museum - also underestimated). The moment you are in the parking lot, you are teased with an aroma that hints at the awaiting flavor. You will only regret not being able to finish your plate.
They now have a 2nd location on Houghton Rd at Rita Rd in the former Cilantros.
I LOVE BUCK & LIL'S WHOEVER SAID PORTION SIZE IS SMALL I THINK U NEED GLASSES.. DELICIOUS SMOKED PORK AND FINGER LICKING COLE SLAW!
Went here for lunch with a friend. Food was OK but too expensive for portion size and overall taste. I love "good" BBQ bad but I doubt either of us will be back. Lower your prices and make portions larger. Then maybe I could get past the run of the mill favor.
