    Any recommendations for sit down and have a beer with your BBQ type places?

    X2 Waldo's is pretty good. No tap beer though, only bottles. Awesome pulled pork sandwich! BBQ bills didn't impress plus had onions in the Mac and cheese and tri tip was dry but the beers were cold. Jasper's is okay I like the happy hour that's about it. Barley Bros has some decent ribs.

    Also, not impressed with BBQ Bill's. Actually, not good at all.

    CHA Bones isn't bbq. It's more tapas. It's pretty good but not a sit down bbq joint.

    Clam Chowder is really good, BBQ is alright. The amount of food on each plate is ridiculous.

    Golden Horseshoe - Said it before, the salad bar was OK and the steaks were not.

    Grew up going to Chris & Pitts. IMHO - Havasu could really use a BBQ place like that. Cold beer, great steaks - ribs etc, along with a good salad, BBQ beans & hot garlic bread. It is not here, yet.

    We were on our way into town for the weekend so wife pulls in to Jasper's parking lot. Doors locked. Guy next door (barber?) says they closed up a couple weeks ago. Had a "bad summer".

    Only been a handful of times and it's been fine. Not spectacular but LOTS of food for a decent price. I'd go again. Kinda like the saloon throw the peanuts on the floor feel. Sorry but I just haven't found fine dining in Havasu so I don't expect it anywhere. Then again I'm not going to Havasu so I can get all dressed up and go out to a fancy meal either.

    Sadly, they have nearly 'shit-the-bed' in business. I regularly drive past the Downey and Whitter locations and find them either closed or open without a single car parked out front.

    Roger (Cigalert) recently cut them off from his bakery products. I can only guess as to why....

    BBQ seemed like a lot of work here so we said screw it and went to College Street. They've got some pretty tasty beers.

    Sorry to hear about Chris & Pitts. In the day, they had good food and did a good business. Oh well, some things don't last forever. Still think a similar place would do well in LHC, summer and winter. C & P had sawdust on the floor, cold beer, good menu, and they did a good sit down and take out business.
