This longtime catering operation dishes mouthwatering ribs that deliver gnaw-off-the-bone pleasure. Top-notch brisket and pulled pork are just as good. Hot, crispy seasoned fries and coleslaw punched up with blue cheese make marvelous go-withs. A top lunch spot for the business crowd.

I've visited the Barbecue Company for one of Phoenix's best-kept pig-out secrets: all-you-can-eat barbecue for lunch on the first Wednesday of every month. Loading up on pulled pork, brisket and ribs isn't like packing in pizza or Chinese food - you get FULL. You get tired. You get the sweats. It's damn hard to go back to work after, but this gastronomical right of passage is worth the productivity hit. You won't find any swill on this buffet line, either. Just some of the finest pulled pork and brisket in town, plus ribs, chicken, jalapeno cornbread and more. The sauces on the table don't come close to my St. Louis favorites, but out here you'd be hard pressed to find better. If the regular buffet weren't amazing enough, I once stumbled into a luau. I don't know how often they do it, but the Hawaiian theme included a whole roasted pig lying on the buffet table, a chef pulling meat from it right onto customers' plates. I've been to Hawaii, and trust me - the islanders never serve kalua pork that fresh. Based on the buffet experience, I can recommend Barbecue Company for catering or a regular meal. But if you're ready to cowboy up and "put the bold taste of the West in your chest" - like, your WHOLE chest and then some - hit up the buffet lunch on First Wednesday.
We can't get enough of the Sweet Sonoran Heat at The Barbecue Company, so we drive across town without complaint and load up on several bottles at a time of this heavenly sauce, then go home and pour it on everything in sight. We've been known to attract ants, but trust us, the Sweet Sonoran Heat is worth any inconvenience. More »
We like the Barbecue Company because, while its silky, smooth barbecue sauce is topnotch, it doesn't rely on it to hide lesser-quality meat. There's a lot of work that goes into cooking here, like its rib tip plate, one full pound of rib tips that have been dry rubbed, slow smoked and grilled with just a touch of Q-Sauce (more on the side for dipping). All the classics show up in style: St. Louis-style pork ribs, smoked chicken, pulled pork, smoked brisket, or Q-turkey. A sampler brings a... More »
