Some would say that we are heading out of BBQ season but the truth is BBQ is the one food I think has no season. Although it is more popular in the warmer months, let's face it, good BQQ tastes good no matter what the weather.

The Hudson Valley has its share of BBQ restaurants but I thought it would be fun to share the ones that I know have really tasty choices. I am always surprised by just how many BBQ restaurants we have in our area. Hard to believe that pulled pork and brisket would be so popular in New York but it is, and so is the mac and cheese that often comes along as the side.

The Tastiest BBQ Restaurants in the Hudson Valley


Just about every town in the Hudson Valley has a BBQ place or at least a restaurant that serves a BBQ dish or two. If I had included all of them you would never actually get out for a pulled pork sandwich so I narrowed the list to places that specifically serve BBQ and I tried to include enough places that there is bound to be one close to where you live.

Billy Bob's BBQ on 35 Fairmont Avenue in Poughkeepsie is a place that I know many people have enjoyed since it opened. Their Facebook page has recommendations going back as far as 2012.  John Fazio Farms BBQ on 1836 State Route 44 55 in Modena serves mouthwatering BBQ along with other treats including ice cream if you are looking for the perfect topper after your BBQ brisket.
