With the Fourth of July just days away we think of two things. Extravagant firework displays and of course amazing barbecue to be eaten. Here are the best places in the area!!

I consider myself to be a fairly big grilling fiend, I say fiend because I am far from a grill master. Partially due to a new fancy grill. However I can do nowhere near the job and produce the quality of food that these amazing 4 restaurants in the Capital Region can. Whether it be ribs, chicken or pork, I guarantee you will not go away upset at any of these establishments.

I personally have only been able to try number one and number four but will be needing to try the other two very soon. Without further hesitation, here is the list.

  1. Dinosaur BBQ
  2. Brooks House of BBQ
  3. Texas Roadhouse
  4. Pig Pit
