    Brisket was the worst I've ever had. Sliced fat and gristle was more like it. It will be great for a dog though. Pit ham was okay as was the jalapeño creamed corn.

    Totally amazed that whoever owns the rights to Li'l Abner hasn't long since sued the pants off the owner.

    If there's inside lighting other than beer signs and some strands of Christmas lights, it's very well hidden. Use your phone's flashlight app if you want to read the menu.

    Not great! Huge portions but need to smother the BBQ in sauce for it to be edible.

    Best barbecue in 500 miles. We don't make the trip from Madison WI to Kansas City without stopping at Jethro's.

    If you've ever been to TX you'd know this BBQ doesn't even compare, but good for IA. I'd avoid the brisket as it was very fatty. If you must have it make sure to request it be cut from the center.

    The "hot coleslaw" is seriously good. It's familiar to me from some excellent sauerbraten I used to have in Norman OK at the sadly no longer existing Zum Deutschen Eck.

    Sweet tea was too sweet, but the BBQ was relatively good.

    Beware; half orders of onion rings cost 8/9 the price of full orders, and half slabs of ribs much more than half the price of a full slab.

    I don't know why but I've been there 4 times and they have never been as good as the original Drake location. Hopefully that will change because it is convenient since we go to Altoona often.

    Awesome BBQ! But the owners need to put up a fly strip or two. The flies are very annoying while trying to eat.

    The Adam Emmenecker Challenge is an impossible feat. Beware the allure of the challenge.
