No matter where you go, a craving for a juicy, melts-in-your-mouth barbecue will always hit you. Thankfully, some of the best pit masters are found in Las Vegas and you can easily get your bbq fix at any of these restaurants in the city:
Rollin Smoke Barbecue
Located off Strip, Rollin Smoke Barbecue is a small family-run restaurant that serves juicy and tender barbecue that’s huge on smoked goodness and flavor. The Meat Trio, their bestseller, consists of ribs, brisket and pork with mac n cheese and extra crispy waffle fries sides. Another must-try is their smoked meatloaf, made from smoked brisket, hamburger and smoked pulled pork, served with crispy onion rings or mashed potatoes.
Memphis Championship Barbecue
The Memphis Championship Barbecue’s dishes are so delicious and juicy that they have been winning several regional and national championships over the years. In fact, their Applewood-smoked specialties earned them a spot in the official Barbecue Hall of Fame!
Try their baby back ribs and St. Louis ribs together with hot links, pork shoulder or southern catfish for a complete dining experience. Bonus: famous celebrities like Celine Dion and illusionists Penn and Teller often drop by for a bite so keep an eye out.
Another barbecue restaurant that offers top-notch smoked meat is Lucille’s Smokehouse. They offer a wide range of specialties such as beef ribs, Tri Tip, St. Louis ribs, beef brisket and of course, baby back ribs. Sides include fried okra, sweet potato fries, fried green tomatoes and onion straws among others. For patrons who like to cocktails before or after a great barbecue meal, Lucille’s Smokehouse houses a full bar in their lounge.
John Mull’s Meats and Road Kill Grill
Since 1954, John Mull’s has been a go-to place for hunters and meat eaters alike. The talented chefs in their kitchen prepare spices from scratch and create the famous St. Louis ribs. Fast forward to today, people still line up to taste their barbecue. You should definitely do the same.
Bell’s BBQ might be younger than the other mentioned restaurants on our list but it does give them a run for their money. Labeling itself as a chef-driven restaurant, Bell’s BBQ is a simple and clean establishment that offers serious smoked meat. Their specialty is the hickory brisket that’s been smoked for 14 hours. It is extra flavorful, fork tender, and very juicy. Bell’s BBQ also serves pulled pork, baby back ribs, and barbecue chicken.
