Buzz BBQ

In our continuing quest to find new BBQ joints in town (because the spouse loves him some barbecue), tonight we visited Buzz BBQ. It’s a fairly recent addition to the area, plus we received some coupons in the mail so it had two things going for it right out of the gate.

The dining room isn’t really set-up to hold many people, but if there is a free table I really recommend it because the employees are so friendly and they stop to chat with you, explaining their process for cooking the meat. They served everything in styrofoam containers and with plastic forks, so it is a very casual dining environment. If the dining room is not available or you would prefer to eat at home, they have carry out and delivery options available.

They serve 4 kinds of meat: chicken, beef brisket, pork ribs and andouille sausage. The BBQ dinners come with meat (or a combination of meats), 2 sides and a roll. The side dish choices are coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, mixed veggies and corn on the cob. They were more than happy to substitute a side salad for my two sides though. It was a good salad with fresh crisp romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes and a light sprinkling of cheese. Truthfully, I wasn’t that blown away by the rolls (probably because they were made from refined flour and I have a personal vendetta against that evil), but Kevin thought they were good.

I ordered the chicken dinner and Kevin had the 2-item combo, brisket and sausage. The chicken was super moist and flavorful and provided me with plenty of food for dinner, plus leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch. The meats in Kevin’s meal were also incredibly tasty. Everything was enhanced when dipped in the cup of BBQ sauce they provided.

BBQ dinners range in price from $9-$16. They also serve sandwiches that range in price from $7-$10, larger dinner salads and soups. They serve shakes, ice cream and pie as well, although we didn’t have room for dessert.

The restaurant is kind of hidden in a shopping center, but is well worth finding. The food was excellent and the employees are fabulous. I was told to stop eating my food with the fork and knife and just pick it up. “Don’t worry about being ladylike, you’re part of the family now!”, I was told. They even packaged up our leftovers for us to take home, without us even asking. Now that’s good service!

  1. Buzz BBQ

    In one word: PHENOMENAL!

    First things first, the address is 7810 W Ann Rd, and it is located in the shopping center next to Bogey’s, approximately ½ mile west of highway 95.

    Now, to the nitty gritty:
    From the parking lot, your mouth will instantly begin to salivate as the hickory-smoke aroma fills the air – trust me. When we walked in, the red walls and old style décor were very charming. Generous portions of food are served with generous portions of southern hospitality.

    We each ordered a 2-meat combo, one of chicken and brisket, and the other of sausage and ribs so we could sample all four meats. Our combos came with two sides each, so we ordered the corn, potatoes salad, ‘slaw, and beans to get a taste of it all… The chicken was moist, tender and delicious; the brisket – best I’ve ever had; the sausage is sweet, not spicy, but soooo good when submerged in the cup of sauce they give ya; the ribs, also very yummy.

    The sides were equally delicious, the slaw especially. The corn was sweet and perfect, the beans – excellent, I personally don’t like potato salad but my boyfriend ate it up without a second thought. Something important to know: you couldn’t pay me any amount of money to eat your average slaw because it’s made with mayo and mayo sucks. Buzz BBQ’s slaw contains no oil and no mayo. You must be thinking, “So it’s just a bunch of dry cabbage?” NO. It is the most flavorful thing I’ve ever tasted! It’s so crunchy and ice cold and has flavors of a salsa. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

    Buzz’s has homemade ice cream and Italian ice for dessert, as well as a long list of pie, including the classic apple pie. We didn’t sample any pie, but the homemade ice cream and Italian ice… WOW!

    What I am trying to say is that this is honest to goodness REAL barbecue. I was born and raised here in Vegas, so what we call barbecue is hardly such. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is from Oklahoma, as is one of the owners, and good southern style barbecue is what you are served at Buzz BBQ. It’s easy to earn ‘Best of Las Vegas’ for BBQ when you don’t have any authentic competitors. Buzz BBQ will give those “other” local barbecue joints a run for their money and steal that title from ‘em in a heart beat.

    They’re open seven days a week: Mon-Sat 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 pm., and Sun Noon to 6:00 p.m. Stop in today because they are having a Super Bowl 41 special. Call for details: 294-BUZZ. Seriously… do it. You’ll love it!

  2. These are great bbq ribs places. I noticed that the ones that are really good all have one thing in common — they actually smoke the ribs !! Most places just oven cook it or gas grill it — yuck!. These people should be hauled off to jail.
