Barbecue joints in Edmonton worth the mess

Whether you prefer southern, Korean or Chinese barbecue, you won’t mind getting a little sloppy at these barbecue restaurants. You’ll be too busy enjoying the sweet taste of slowly smoked brisket, pulled pork and luscious barbecue sausage to mind a mess. Grab a bib and prepare to dig in.

Sloppy Hoggs

9563 118 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5G 0N9

Known for ridiculously huge portions and creative combinations, Sloppy Hoggs is all about two things: barbecue and gluttony. They smoke their proteins over a blend of apple and maple wood, giving it a beautiful flavour. The Cure, is one of the most popular dishes – it’s two waffles, pulled pork, their own special sauce and sunny side up eggs. Bring an empty stomach, a few friends and a Tupperware container in order to try a variety of stuff and bring your leftovers home.

Super Barbeque Delight

10620 97 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 2L6

This Chinese barbecue restaurant always has a line out the door at lunch time, and for good reason. They slice up delights such as barbecue duck and barbecue pork by the pound for a really reasonable price. You can eat it on its own or make it part of a lunch box – two barbecued meats and sticky white rice for only $5.50. They often run out of barbecue sausage, so come early to avoid disappointment.

That B-B-Q Place Ltd

230-220 Lakeland Dr, Sherwood Park, AB T8H 0N6

They smoke brisket, pork ribs and turkey for a looooong time over apple wood to give it that delicious flavour. Their own pit master trained with three-time world champion pit master, Mike Mills, and all of their recipes are authentic southern ones. Smoked meat comes on sandwiches, on its own or on a family platter. For sides, try the pulled potato, a baked potato topped with apple wood smoked cheddar, Louisiana mayo, barbecue sauce and your choice of either pulled pork, beef brisket or sliced turkey breast.

Korean Village BBQ Restaurant

7729 85 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6C 3B4

This Korean restaurant combines two of the most glorious things on the planet – an all-you-can-eat barbecue buffet and karaoke. Plus, in between belting out hit songs, you get to barbecue your meat right at your table. They give you a grill and a fan, and let you go to town on their supply of chicken, pork, beef, squid and shrimp. There are also plenty of veggies, tempura veggies and spring rolls. The buffet includes unlimited rice and traditional Korean seaweed soup.

Grillbillys Smokehouse BBQ Inc

8310 Roper Rd Nw, Edmonton, AB T6E 6E3

This barbecue restaurant opened up in Edmonton in 2012 but, soon after, business was put on hold briefly due to a fire. Once the damage was repaired, the owners reopened, much to the relief of everyone near 124th Street. It’s a popular option for lunch, with housemade sauces, smoked brisket, pulled pork nachos, deep fried dill pickles and, their speciality, the bacon bomb (Italian sausage wrapped in bacon and then smoked to perfection). They also have live blues music Thursday nights.

Meat Barbecue Ltd

8216 104 St Nw, Edmonton, AB T6E 4E6

This family-style barbecue restaurant lives up to its name, with proteins served by the half pound or pound. Fill up on brisket, pulled pork, apple glazed smoked chicken, barbecue ribs, fried chicken or Andouille sausage. There’s a new smoked meat feature and a vegetarian sandwich rotated in regularly. They also serve up their beef brisket, pulled pork and barbecue pulled chicken on sandwiches. The long communal tables encourage sharing and checking out what your neighbour ordered. Standout sides include creamed corn and baked beans.

In April 2016, Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards for the Best Pizza in the World: The Top 14 Cities for Pizza placed Edmonton at number eight on the list. With a diverse number of fantastic pizzas to choose from, including hand-tossed, wood-fired pies with white or red sauce and fun toppings ranging from pineapple to pine nuts, you're sure to find one you adore. Buon appetito!
