Great local BBQ restaurant. Brisket and pulled pork were competition level meat. Service was top-notch and very pleasant. We stopped by while on a Redwoods vacation and were so glad we did.

We found this place through a quick Google search. The reviews looked good, so I gave it a shot. It was the right choice. This is a cool little bbq eatery located just off of the highway. Our food was prepared quickly and Apple Pay is accepted!!!The brisket is excellent. Judging from the order alone I am sure the rest of the good on the menu is delicious too.

First time here and definitely will be back! We stopped in for brunch and we're glad we did. For what we got we paid a good price, $16 for enough to feed two people is a good deal. We got the brisket plate with pulled pork and chicken to go with it and potatoesalad and hummus for the two sides. The brisket had a great bark and smoke ring and it was very tender and juicy. The pork and chicken were just as juicy and tender.One thing to keep in mind when you go, the hummus has a kick to it, not in a bad way but it can build some serious heat in the back of your throat after a few bites. We found it to be a great mix for any of the proteins and the rice that comes with the plate. All in all, just a great experience and looking forward to going back for more.

Exceptional chow served up by friendly brosters in this tiny BBQ shack. Brisket for Boyfriend and Pulled Pork for me. We ate for two days on this. I usually think of the rice as just a backdrop but it was taste-&-texture-tastic. Downscale faux-sodas add to the fun. Relaxing low-key vibe indoors and out. Go there.

The people here are always super friendly and I love that about this place. However, the packaging of the food, particularly sandwiches, leaves much to be desired. Not only that, but a pulled pork sandwich should have enough sauce to eat the entire thing without feeling like you're eating dry pork in a Bun. I'm not sure I'll be returning here to eat, even though I do appreciate the kindness of those who work there. And many people I talk to do love their food, but I can only speak from my experience.

Wow! I ordered the Brisket plate and it was enough meat for two! Super tender and juicy and lots of it! Crazy good! The baked beans and coleslaw were excellent, had I known I would have asked for double on the sides and less meat. Had delivered by DoorDash to my hotel. Took 15 min!


We ate at 6. ribs very very dried out with little meat, beans tasted like they were right out of a common can pork and bean. The cole slaw and rice were very good. It was a very filling meal. cost for 2 rib meals was $43.


smelled like food decay and was very bland nothing like BBQ more like road kill and 3rd world rations

Art's BBQ is delicious! We were visiting the area from out of town and saw the great reviews. It was fantastic. We got the brisket. It was tender and delicious. The portions were huge, even for my teen boys! They could not have been nicer. Would definitely go back again.

Stopped here while touring the redwoods, definitely on of the best bbq meal I've ever had! Also the guy was super friendly and had awesome suggestions about the area! Get the combo and try different meats, they're all good!

Arts BBQ is amazing. It may sound crazy (being in Crescent City), but some of the best BBQ I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot. All of the staff were extremely friendly, the food was out quickly, and in large portions. My girlfriend and I had one plate for two meals each. Extremely reasonable for the price. I got a three meat sampler plate, and I couldn’t have been more happy. The chicken is the best I’ve ever had from a BBQ joint. This place is a must go.

Super tasty BBQ!!! Good portion sizes and so much flavor in the meat!! It can be hard to find good BBQ like this, especially when you grew up on the East Coast, you tend to be extra picky! we enjoyed our meals and the service as well!! Highly recommend!
