1/2 Pint Mac'N'Cheese

They have the most amazing Mac and cheese you won't find it anywhere else it has sausage in it to give it a kick as well. Let me just tell you their bbq sauce is to die for. I definitely recommend trying this local favorite.

1/2 Pint Chili Beans

We have enjoyed all the various meats, porks, poultry but the most unexpected amazing dish are the chili beans. I can only imagine it's because it's made with all those amazing meats. 😋

Pastrami Sandwich

Delicious! The pickles and peppers add the perfect "zing" to the sandwich. The pastrami is thin and perfectly crisp but not too overdone. Love this sandwich.

1/2 Pint Mac'N'Cheese

Creamy Mac and Cheese. It melts in your mouth. Upon opening the container the hot link worried me a bit at first before I took a bite. However, I was pleasantly surprised and it makes this dish just that much better. I paired it with a sandwich. So yummy! Thanks Prime Time!

Deep Pit Sandwich

Everything we ordered was amazingly delicious! I had fries, Mac and cheese and chili beans along with my Deep pit! No regrets! The meat was so tender and flavorful! It also had a Latin twist to the bbq and items on the menu. This is my new fave spot! Oh Also bought some meat and links to take home! I'll never buy meat somewhere else again! Come here you'll love it!

Daily Lunch Special

Prime Time BBQ always has awesome lunch specials, my favorite is the loaded baked potato. The potato is huge! They fill it with loads of meat and cheese and it is so delicious!

Cooked Chicken Diablo

We love Primetime BBQ! We tried the Chicken Diablos almost two years ago and thought they were amazing! We've been eating them ever since. Luis has catered a few things for us, from a birthday party to football team meals. His food is excellent as is his service! The chili beans are another favorite!!! My whole family loves them! The tri tip, chicken, and salsa are also absolutely delicious! We also frequently purchase A variety of meats to cook at home. It's always top quality and they wrap everything so nicely, often seasoning things for me, which is also so helpful for the home bbqing. The staff is always cheerful and kind! We highly recommend their business!

BBQ Rib Plate

Amazing food really recommend it !

Caitjwolf about 1 month ago

1/2 Pint Chili Beans

The first time I had the beans, the server told me they would be the star of the show. I thought that was a little far fetched considering the gorgeous ribs I was about to eat, but what do you know... I ended up having to buy a second half pint since everyone at the table couldn't stop helping themselves to MY delicious beans. Bravo!

BBQ Tri Tip Sandwich

I seriously love this place. Sad that I'm working from home and can't take my coworkers there during this time. I work for CPS and I'm usually there every Friday to eat(sadly more sometimes). The owner is so nice and usually laughs and says "weren't you just here." My go to is the tri-tip sandwich but before quarantine I was starting to try different items on the menu and nothing disappointed. Safe to say I love everything there from the food,fountain drinks, & the very friendly staff!!

1/2lb Deep Pit Style Shredded Beef

I work right around the corner and never knew about this place until my mom who also works downtown recommended this spot. OMG! I can't decide if the bbq sauce or the salsa was the best combo! The second time I went back I had the tri-tip! Even better! This place is a MUST try!

Prime Time Burger

This burger is HUGE!!! It was so good and we are about to go and order it again ❤ We also had BLT mac and onion rings. The flavors are not to be compared to any other BBQ place in town. Prime Time has the BBQ game locked down.

1/2lb Deep Pit Style Shredded Beef

Now I have tried some pretty amazing deep pit style shredded beef recipes in my lifetime; some being family recipes of which I never thought could be touched in terms of flavor and tenderness. But I've gotta say, this BEATS any and all recipes including family! This was the best meal I have ever tried. This is my first time trying Prime Time BBQ and I am simply blown away. I ordered this at work and blew up my husband's phone urging him to take his lunch break there! I haven't stopped thinking about this place. I want to have all four meals there, breakfast, lunch and dinner, I want it all. Better yet they could hire me and pay me in food! Wow, just wow...

1/2 Pint Chili Beans

These chili beans are the best I've had. They are certainly the heartiest: filled with chunks of savory beef and sausage, they don't skimp on filling their chili beans with soupy liquid, these chili beans are weighty and will fill you right up. 10/10 couldn't recommend more highly.
