Everything was great. I’m in love with the potato salad. Pulled pork was really good. Friendly service. Would go back

Everything we had was over the top - DELICIOUS! Started with the amazing Bloody Mary's of course. Best ever! Then onto Smoked Potato Boats while the rest of our taste bud tantalizing food was getting ready - each made to custom order. Broccoli slaw, ribs,...2 different corn bread, burnt ends (buttery bits of melt in your mouth beef brisket) and mac-n-cheese. Almost had to roll us out AND we took leftovers home. A must stop at in Erie. Forget the trip for Chick-fil-A mass produced chain food yuk - this is REAL food made from scratch with lots of know how and a genuine flair for BBQ.More

The appetizer is bacon. The cornbread is awesome. The ribs are the best in town. The have craft beer on tap and a friendly staff. A little hard to find, but worth the trouble.

Ribs were the best I've had in Erie. Not a fan of cornbread, but ordered it anyway because it was made to order, and it was incredible. My girlfriend got the mac and cheese and it was also exceptional. Cant wait to go back!

We came to this restaurant from the reviews online they were out of mostly everything on the menu and the owner was completely rude and ignorant as well as the staff it's in a completely ghetto area of Erie which I would not recommend going...to it's a complete dump with garbage food don't let the reviews fool youMore

We started coming here many years ago. In the beginning it was fantastic. Then we hit a period when the ribs were very disappointing. We decided to come back today and I am so glad we did! My husband had the brisket (1/2 lb) with...the onion cheese. He love it and wished he had ordered the 3/4 lb. I had the ribs. They were moist and tender, delicious! We both had the baked beans served in small cast iron skillets with a slice of pineapple. Yum. We shared a side of broccoli salad which we liked also. We both enjoyed a local craft brew (ontap) and I am so glad we came back!More

This was our 3rd visit to 3B and we look forward to going again. They do bbq the right way. From their brisket to the tender rids, everything was spot on. Their sauce is tasty, the sides are yummy and the service is friendly. They...also have a good assortment of beer and full bar offerings. We lived in the south for several years and have had the real deal - go to 3B - you won't be disappointed.More

I had a buy one get one coupon book (Kiwanis club book) we stopped on a saturday.. they said they would not honor it on a saturday.. like whatever... I'll let you judge them. HA The food was good but pricey. I had a grilled...Chicken breast sandwich for $ 7 my friend had a pulled chicken sandwich for $9 .. and we split a veggie platter that was $ 13 .. So food for 2 came to $ 30 fast. It was tasty .. but I still needed a snack once I got home. Most people stop there to drink.. you can see why. I will go back tho.. if they won't honor the coupon then we will leave. The food was really good.More

Great service, super atmosphere. Food was awesome, very tasty! Loved the homemade lemonade, the bacon was amazing and so was everything else we had! No too far from the docks, easy to go and take a walk by Lake Erie!
