Best Barbecue

We are very serious about our barbecue in the Chippewa Valley, and it doesn’t get any more serious than at Red Coal BBQ (2839 Mall Drive, Eau Claire). The team at Red Coal aims to provide diners with delicious barbecue, from appetizers to entrees. The Midwest’s very own Famous Dave’s (2911 Mall Drive, Eau Claire) is famous for, well, everything barbecue with their vast menu of award-winning ribs to burgers and sandwiches. Karl’s Bar-B-Q Express (1456 Kennedy Road, Chippewa Falls) can boast about having some of the best barbecue around with their mouth-watering “fall apart in your mouth” ribs. –Caitlin Boyle
