THANKS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOOD FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SOUTHERN BBQ JOINT THESE PAST TWO YEARS! OUR JOINT IS CURRENTLY CLOSED, OUR LEASE IS UP AND THE BUILDING IS BEING REPURPOSED IN 2022, SO NO MORE BBQ OR AUTOMATIC CARWASH HERE ANYMORE.
STAY TUNED AND WATCH OUR PAGE AND SOCIAL MEDIA FOR UPDATES, AS WE’LL BE BACK AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE, SOMEWHERE, SOMEHOW… TO BRING YOU GREAT SOUTHERN BBQ AGAIN!
FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEART, THANKS!
This place is fantastic!!! The owners are lovely, generous, and always provide top quality service. And the beans, OMG THE BEANS!!!, the best in town for sure! Do yourself a favour and try them out. 🙂
It is all great! If you are not sure what to get, or incredibly hungry, get the trinity poutine! You will not be disappointed, although you maybe slightly uncomfortable if you eat it all yourself 🙂 (probably better to share)
I tried the ribs with honey chipolte sauce, chicken wings with the memphis sauce, baked beans and mac&cheese bites. All cooked to perfection and tasty. I've tried all the others... read more
This restaurant is a hidden gem. The pulled pork is the best I have ever tasted! The brisket and coleslaw are amazing! The portions are tops. The owners are so... read more
Was lucky enough to check out Stone City on their opening day, solid city style bbq with decent portions.
My wife and I tried the pulled pork and brisket... read more
Whoa - Heck Ya. You guys are amazing. We have a smoker and can't get a brisket to turn out like yours. Just amazing. The owner is also super chill. Pre Covid we had a few good chats. Great people great food.
Best BBQ in Ontario and can compete for the Canadian title any day.( I'd say it's between them and Fait á Los in Quebec city with ease) Locally owned and operated Stone City BBQ comes close to destroying any reason to attend Kingston's BBQ festival, variety maybe? Providing succulent offerings of slow smoked meats this is as close as you get to carnivore heaven. While the place is located in a carwash you need to realize it's a feature not a bug. Like classic Southern pit houses with the meat being cooked off site or in the parking lot, Stone City BBQ is a BBQ distribution center not a restaurant. You aren't there to eat, you're there to purchase hours, HOURS, of perfectly cooked meat, prepared for you to take and enjoy in your terms. There is no way to make this fast and as such there is only limited supply, they can't just whip up more fresh, this isn't fresh it's real BBQ. The sign on the door stating that they're open until 7 or the meat is gone is your best sign off quality. Step in here knowing they never make it to seven, for a reason. The core options are what is to be expected, brisket with exceptional meat to fat ratio(if I've said it once I'll say it a hundred times this place refuses to skimp on flavour), chicken that's moist and Smokey and pulled pork that pulls itself if you look at it intently. These are all paired intentionally with the houses sauces. But feel free to play with meat/sauce combos. The fantastic team is more than willing to accommodate and I can say hand on heart it's all delicious. In addition there are wings and ribs, you really can't go wrong walking in or calling and asking them what you should have that day. So there are the basic platters that come with creamy slaw, a cornbread muffin that may be 50% butter, 45% honey and 60-65% comfort, the math works out when you bite into these believe me. And if you don't, spread some of the beans you get, again packed with pieces of chopped brisket and pulled pork across the muffin and try it again, eyes closed. The math works. In addition to the platters there are great poutines, regular or piled with BBQ. The Trinity is a meal for 4, packed with all three meats over a tub of crispy fries. I ask for a drizzle of their Memphis sauce on top, and while my wife always gets mad when I bring it home and interrupt "clean eating" she and the kids lean into this seemingly unending pile of goodness with reckless abandon. Meat on a bun and redneck tacos also bring smiles to eyes and fill hunger pangs as great hand held options. If say the downside of this place is the meat coma, they give you a "healthy" amount of food. This then often also leads to filling your dreams and haunting you in the daylight hours... Why aren't I eating BBQ right now? Once you've tried it and go back, you will go back, consider their frozen meat and sauce. We started buying it and now always have a pound of something on hand to make BBQ pizzas, open face sandwiches etc when the occasion arises. I honestly can't recommend this place enough. Excellent people providing REAL BBQ at a fair price, it really sells itself. And if you don't believe me call at like 630 to see what you can get. They might not be there, they probably have nothing of not next to nothing and can advise you on how to order for tomorrow!
Ridiculously tasty food. I especially love their redneck tacos. The food tastes so fresh because it always is. I wish they could be open more days of the week, but I understand that this way they can keep the food the most fresh. Easily worth a dedicated trip from across town, or even from out of town. Once the 3rd crossing is complete I imagine we'll come by even more often.
