Craving some barbeque? Then you're in the right place! I've found some fantastic barbecue right here in Northeast Ohio. This list includes several options that are sure to delight everyone.

Big Eue's

The first place that you need to know about is Big Eue's barbeque. Imagine BBQ heaven. What would it look like? You would have options galore at a great price, right? Check. Everything is tasty and the sauce is great. The Big Eue's menu is huge and the portions are too. Kool Aid Pie? Yes please! You can get enough food to fill you up and even have some left overs for under 10 dollars. And the online ordering service is really handy. Just order online (even with your phone) and some yummy barbeque will be ready for you when you arrive. Don't let the looks deceive you: Big Eue's isn't fancy. It's just great barbeque. It's located just a couple miles down the road in Cuyahoga Falls on Portage Trail in a commercial area next to State Farm. You can visit Big Eue's website here.

OMG! Our first try at this place and all three of us concluded that it is awesome! Huge sandwiches, gigantic sides and fantastic flavor! Not drowning in sauce, but everything we tried had a smooth, smokey flavor unlike any other BBQ I can remember having. To top it all off, it's amazingly inexpensive. These guys should charge more! Three of us ate huge lunches for $18! Can't wait to go back. Martin H.

Jimmy's Backyard and BBQ

Jimmy’s Backyard BBQ prides itself on providing delicious BBQ and homemade sides every day. Jimmy's BBQ is BBQ with a twist. Sure, the regular favorites are available such as brisket, chicken, pulled pork, and of course ribs. But Jimmy’s also has a “Mexi-Que” menu which consists of Burritos and Nachos made with our smoked meats, topped with your choice of a variety of fresh toppings and homemade salsas. I know what you're thinking. Is this just mexican food with BBQ sauce thrown on top? Nope! Not at all. It is more like an authentic twist on barbeque and Mexican food altogether.

I ordered a bunch of food for staff at work—pulled pork, Mac & cheese, potato salad, and baked beans. They loved it! It looked so good that I ordered dinner for myself—I also got the beef brisket—it was outstanding! And the slider rolls were amazing too! The staff is very friendly. I can’t believe that I’ve lived in the Falls and have never gone to this place before now. I will definitely be back! AmyKid1

City Barbecue

Okay, so you live Falls, but you know how every now and then you like to try something new? Here's a delightful bbq joint that you'll want to visit next time you're in West Akron. City Barbeque. The menu is full of classics and some unique flavors too such as Nashville hot chicken, fresh cut fries, fried pickles, ribs and more. For dessert, don't forget about the peach cobbler, banana pudding and triple chocolate cake. You can check out City BBQ at their website here.
Excellent place for BBQ! Normally I send spouse to pick up food here, but I did tonight instead. Glad I did! The food is always freshly prepared here. Meat is tender and sides are freshly prepped too! I enjoy chopped brisket and rest of family enjoys pulled pork. We always have enough leftovers for the next day too. Lisa C.
