Betty Kaye's Smokehouse Barbecue •
4668 Cascade Rd SE, Grand Rapids

“The meat from Betty Kaye's is as good if not better than any que joint in the area. My only complaint is that although the Pit Masters are awesome, the front register folks leave a lot to be desired. When I talk to Zach about his food, he's passionate about his work and making sure we as customers have exactly what we need when we need it. My order was not ready when I arrived. The lead that evening did what she could to make sure I had everything, but the two working with her did not seem to feel the same urgency.My hope is that soon the staff who helps the customer matches the care and passion Zach and Dave have for their product.“
