Delicious! Everything Was Wonderful

“Delicious! My husband, 3 kids, and I were there about 2 weeks ago. We each got something different and tried each other’s. Brisket, ribs, and pork BBQ were delicious. Cornbread and brisket were probably my favorite . . . everything was wonderful! Staff, service, cleanliness, and food all 5 star!”
-Kim M.

“Really tasty BBQ, friendly service & relaxing atmosphere.”

“We were conservative during our first visit and tried the ribs, pulled pork, fries, and slaw. ALL outstanding so we decided to give it another go today adding the smoked wings, baked beans, and brownies for my husband’s birthday. This place simply makes fantastic food! We can’t wait for our next outing to Canaan so we can eat more great food. We’ve always been repeat customers at Sirianni’s (which is still amazing) but Canaan Valley BBQ just jumped ahead as our first stop when we return.”

Huge Amount of Pulled Pork on Sandwich and Great Sides
