One of my absolute favorite places to eat BBQ is Bryan’s Black Mountain BBQ located at 6130 E. Cave Creek Road in the town of Cave Creek. Anytime our family is craving a delicious BBQ meal we head north to the quaint little town of Cave Creek to this amazing restaurant tucked in the corner of a small shopping area.
Bryan’s BBQ opened in 2009 and soon became a favorite among the locals and those all over the valley. Bryan’s has been voted the best of the Valley in 2010 and 2011 and has recently been named AZ Central’s Best of 2012. Bryan’s is a super casual place where you order at the counter and seat yourself. There are great indoor options to dine, but our preferred seating area is the lovely outside patio that even offers entertainment in the evenings. One evening we were there and had the opportunity to enjoy a man perched on a horse playing the guitar!
Now to the meat of it!
Bryan’s has delicious perfectly smoked meat offerings including BBQ chicken, pork ribs, pulled pork, and my personal favorite beef brisket (sliced or chopped). My husband and I often order the beef brisket plate that includes your choice of two sides. The French fries are phenomenal and are not to be missed or shared!! Another great side is the famous olive coleslaw or the baked potato salad each extremely fresh and tasty. We like a little spice with our meal so we often add a sweet pickled jalapeno pepper to our order. All of this delicious food can be washed down with a great selection of domestic and import/craft beers or a glass of wine.
Of course, one of the biggest deals, next to the meat, is the BBQ sauce. It is not possible to have a good BBQ without an amazing sauce. Bryan’s BBQ sauce is delicious and comes in a regular and spicy version and is offered in my favorite way, a self-serve station (unlimited amounts!!).
If you find yourself craving delicious BBQ then Bryan’s is definitely worth the drive and I highly recommend that you try it out! We might be headed there tonight!
