Texas BBQ with Local Flathead Valley Flair:

The atmosphere is great and the food is amazing. My very first job ever was working in a BBQ restaurant in Odessa, TX. I know Texas BBQ. I know brisket. At Piggy Back BBQ in Whitefish, Montana, they've mastered the art. They smoke all of their meats on location with Flathead cherry wood. What's more, all their sauces are homemade, adding a personal touch to each dish. Try this restaurant in Whitefish Montana!

Plus, they are always thinking outside of the box. A few things on the menu are novel ideas from their own brains. Like last time I went I tried a temporary menu item, barilla tacos. Made with mouthwatering brisket and paired with an equally delicious dipping sauce.

Last night I tried their ribs for the first time. I fell in love. Tender and bursting with flavor, they're a far cry from the tough, lackluster offerings you might find elsewhere. Will has been my excellent server whenever I go in. He and his buddy Reeves (the owner) have been at it since they met in driver's education at the age of 15 in Texas.

Pro Tip:

If you opt for the True Grit Sandwich (brisket, pulled pork, sausage, and bacon topped with slaw), be prepared to share the wealth with a friend. It could come close to serving my family of 6, and I have two teenage boys! OK, maybe not quite that big. I also love that their sandwiches are made on Kalispell's own Ceres Bakery roll. Way to think local!

Piggy Back BBQ isn't just a restaurant; it's an experience that keeps me coming back for more.
