While it can be argued, probably most rightly, that the best barbecue restaurants can be found in Texas, Seattle has more than its share of barbecue goodness. Thanks to many restaurant owners who grew up where barbecue is done right and then moved to the Northwest, we have a bounty selection of dining options if you are so inclined. Here are just some of the best independent barbecue restaurant in Seattle.

Seattle, Wa 98107
(206) 588-1577

Located in the heart of the Ballard neighborhood, Bitterroot has a very Northwesty upscale look to it and with its great $5 BBQ bites and Bourbon cocktails during Happy Hour (3:00-6:00 p.m.), it’s pretty popular. You’ll find all of your favorites here but served with a little sophistication, four different house-made sauces and a few sides with modern twists like apple pretzel stuffing. But one of dishes Bitterroot is known for isn’t barbecued at all. Each Thursday is friend chicken dinner night with “hot n’ juicy’ buttermilk fried chicken. Meals are paired with signature all-American beer and whiskey list. Best of all, Bitterroot prides itself for offering quality food at an affordable price, and who can beat that?

Jack’s BBQ

3924 Airport Way S.

Seattle WA 98108

(206) 467-4038

Barbecue for breakfast? Why not? They do that all the time at Jack’s serving up breakfast tacos stuffed with potatoes, eggs, cheese and a choice of smoked brisket, pork or sausage. It is said Jack’s style of BBQ is based on what could be found in the butcher shops in central Texas during the late 1800’s with beef and pork cooked simply with just salt and pepper and slow-cooked over oak, mesquite and hickory hard woods. Nothing fancy here. Meals are served on butcher paper with pickle and white bread. While barbecue is optional, it is often frowned upon in central Texas. Wash it all down with Sioux City Sarsaparilla or a Bubble Up soda. Draft beer, well drinks and margaritas are available too.
