BBQ ribs dipped in sauce.BBQ season is here, but sometimes it’s too much effort to fire up the grill! If you are looking for delicious BBQ at a local restaurant, here is a list of Fairfield County Mom contributors’ favorite spots in Fairfield County!

BJ Ryan’s BANC House {Norwalk}

BBQ and crabs! Absolutely delicious, and they have outdoor seating in the summer. They also offer daily specials, and delivery is available. An awesome kids’ menu, too!

Post Oak Barbecue Co. {Fairfield}

Texas BBQ with a unique Southwestern flair. There aren’t many places that offer menu items such as street corn, Vietnamese spring rolls, Diablo sandwiches, wild copper river salmon, and southern grits. Definitely worth a visit, especially during warmer months when you can take advantage of their outdoor seating area.

Hoodoo Brown {Ridgefield}

Hands down, an FCM favorite! Delicious and authentic BBQ worth driving to Ridgefield for! Order the brisket nachos and thank us later. We only wish they had more seating and parking, as there’s often a wait. 

The Boatyard at Smokey Joe’s BBQ {Stamford}

Tasty beef ribs and brisket with amazing sides in a casual dining atmosphere.

Walrus Alley {Westport} 

A family-owned business sharing its southern-inspired hospitality to Westport. You will find a delicious variety of items on their menu, along with great spirits and desserts to top it off. 

DrewbaQ Food Truck and Smoke Shack {Trumbull}

A small location, but big flavors! Authentic and yummy comfort food! You will love their hand-cut fries and brisket. 

Wire Mill Saloon & Barbecue {Redding}

Located in the heart of Georgetown, this restaurant offers delicious, authentic, and homemade smoked specialties! There are so many yummy options on their menu that you will surely find something you love. 

Drumstik BBQ {Bridgeport}

This is a trendy take-out favorite in the area. You definitely want to call ahead to shorten your wait time for pick-up. This place will not disappoint. 

The Cue BBQ {Danbury}

An upscale BBQ restaurant with locally sourced produce. They have a delicious menu, friendly staff, Sunday brunch, and event catering. FCM contributors RAVE about this place! 

Farmboys Smokin BBQ {Danbury}

Delicious meats are smoked for up to 20 hours in their hickory-fired smoker. They are also well-known for their catering – inquire about their pig roasts!
