Martiny’s BBQ is a Barbecue Destination Worth Seeking Out

May 30, 2024

Martiny’s BBQ is a family-run barbecue spot operating on a busy stretch along Route 23 in Lewis Center. Their small, faux log cabin building is easy to drive by, but it’s worth making a detour to taste some of their barbecue!

Inside there’s a small dining room with a handful of picnic tables.

It’s cozy, to say the least!

But if you don’t want to get out of your car, they actually have a drive-through around the back of the building!

We sampled a pair of identical platters: brisket, baked beans, mac and cheese, plus sides of rolls and pickles.

The brisket was a touch lean but the flavor was great. Next time I’ll ask for the fattier end of it!

I appreciated that the baked beans were very flavorful without being overcooked and mushy.

And this mac and cheese is perhaps the best I’ve had at a barbecue joint: properly cooked pasta that’s rich, creamy, and very nicely seasoned.

Clearly we have to go back for more: the half chicken, pulled pork, and especially the pork belly burnt ends. I’ll update this post as we try more, but suffice it to say that we’re fans!

Martiny’s is open Wednesday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
