My barbecue was very good — nicely smoky, without approaching the over-smoked point at which flavors get buried. The pulled pork still retained some body (as opposed to being a mushy mess) and a satisfying vinegary tang came through. The ribs were easy to eat, tender and flavorful. Brisket had plenty of character and was not dry. And there was a nice peppery crust on the meat, nothing too shy, but also nothing too heavy handed.Steve A., www.CT.com
This place has amazing BBQ!! If you’re around the Windsor CT area you should definitely check them out!Brittany, Enfield
Really, I am from southeastern NC. We know BBQ. Bear’s is by far one of the best smokehouse BBQ places I have ever eaten. Not to mention they gave us a military/police discount. Proper sweet tea too!Andrew B., Windsor
Overall, Bear’s Smokehouse is some of the best BBQ you can buy around and is worth the stop in. This place is doing things that not many are doing in the area as well. This coupled with an owner that cares greatly about his product and service puts it in the top tier of BBQ spots in the region!!!!Alex J., Avon
Damn good BBQ. I have tried various places in the Mid Connecticut area and this place beats them all hands down!Melvin T., Lady Lake
