Excellent food, service and price. The waitress are always pleasant and professional. Tyler is fantastic. Called today as well as anytime, placed an order to feed 32 people and it was ready in one hour. Paid almost twice as much for less people from another bbq places in town. It wasn't near as good.

Hostess was very nice, welcoming, seated us quickly, and got our drinks out to us quickly. Waitress was great! Was a hot day so literally got like 5 refills of sweet tea, and she never had me waiting long for them! 5 stars for service alone! Food was a fair price. Had the catfish meal. It was delicious! Will update review when I go back and try the rest of the menu. More...

The food is great, the decor is pretty unique but it just wasnt my thing. One should only hang so much junk on the walls in my opinion. Pricing of food and drinks were about average. It's a great family friendly place - or as family friendly as any place in Carlsbad can be while surrounded by guys in dirty oilfield clothes and work boots...but that's no fault of the establishment's More...

I've eaten BBQ all over this country (it's more of an obsession than a like). Red Chimney is easily in my top 5, maybe top 3. Those ribs are like smoke candy (not sweet, just right), brisket was perfect. The smokey mac and cheese was a nice surprise but the standout was the stuffed avocado! To top it all off, the local made pecan pie is my 2nd favorite in the world! Loaded with nuts and filling that was just like carmel. Whoever is manning the smoker at this joint knows what they are doing and the head chef had a great pallet. Extremely well done! More...

We were visiting Carlsbad--playing tourist--and decided to try the Red Chimney. First--our waitress was exceptional. Extremely friendly & efficient. I had the pecan smothered smoked chicken & my husband had the ribs. Both were very good. We aren't super fans of the vinegar/Carolina style bbq sauce--but Red Chimney's was very good. The rolls with honey made a GREAT dessert. We will definitely be back when we visit Carlsbad again. More...

If you like BBQ, Red Chimney is a great place to eat. The atmosphere is rustic and comfortable. The place is exceptionally clean, service is good and the food is really good. Like all BBQ places these days, it's a bit pricey, but the taste helps ease the pain in your wallet. More...

We had the Brisket entrée which was absolutely amazing. The Pecan Pie, Okra, coleslaw, beans, and potato salad were fantastic. The waitresses and service were top notch and accommodating.

Absolutely awesome. Probably the best BBQ I've ever had. The location is great, with great atmosphere. Designed as a log cabin makes you feel like you are right at home with family. Food was delicious, and came out quick, even though they were quite busy. Service was perfect. Drinks never stayed empty, even the owner came by to make sure everything was ok. Really shows he cares about his business and his customers. The Red Chimney should definitely be a stop when passing through town, and will certainly be on ours the next time we are in town. Couldn't have asked for anything better. More...

This place was recommended by a co worker. It feels like a mountain lodge inside. The food was really good. I met some friendly people there and all of their food looked fab. I tried the ribs, chicken, and brisket nachos. All were good. Meals come with sides of your choice as well as beans, bread, and peppers. The server was super nice and did a great job. The owner came around and visited with all of us. Prices were in order. Overall great find in Carlsbad, where good restaurants are as rare as hens teeth More...

Orlando Jimenez

30 October 2018

I had been waiting to find a BBQ restaurant to eat at since arriving in the Southwest 10 days ago. My wife and I entered 6 establishments and promptly walked out of all 6. They were either grease covered, or to dingy or just plain dirty. We were beginning to think that this quest might be futile. Then on our way to our hotel in Artesia, we saw this establishment. We went online and checked it out. Great reviews and lots of nice comments. We had to wait another day since we were a good distance away. We passed it again on our way to Carlsbad Cavern and made a mental note to stop after a day of spelunking in the Cavern. On our way back we entered the address into the GPS and went with hope and anticipation. We walked in and were greeted by all of the wonderful taxidermy one could imagine. Bison, deer, raccoons, you name it ; it was there and other beautiful western & southwestern memorabilia. They were sparkling and pristine as the day they were placed there. We were greeted and seated at our table for two by a very gracious and courteous young man. I’m sorry I did not get his name. Our waitress, Stormy, then came over and gave us our menus and said she would return to help us with what we wanted. Each time she passed she asked if there was anything we needed and if we needed anything explained. We did ask about one thing on the menu which we purchased for our appetizer. Now to the food. We started with calamari steaks. We did not know what they were but as Stormy explained, they are the tube of the squid flattened and deep fried. So this BBQ’s spin to do away with the rings and serve as steaks was rather unique. They looked like mozzarella cheese sticks but were filled with calamari instead. Simply fantastic and served with a Kentucky (St. Louis) style BBQ sauce making them over the top um, um good. I ordered the combo and my wife ordered the 2 meat choice of smoked turkey and brisket. Each plate came with pinto beans cooked to perfection, and a choice of 2 sides for which we both chose coleslaw and fries. And to make a perfect meal even better toasted rolls (kings Hawaiian style) and a squeeze bottle of honey to put on top. Now we’ve had BBQ before and have been amazed but the “Red Chimney” has a simple do it right method that made our experience the best experience to date. Done simple and done well, adhering to traditional recipes and an establishment with a knowledgeable and courteous staff. Thank you Stormy for making our visit extra special. Oh, and BTW, everyone was taking some of their meal home with them but we ate every morsel of our piled to the sky plates. No scrimping on anything here. More...

Very good bar-b-que. Great service from very friendly wait staff, just like people who call Carlsbad home. The hot links meal is out of this world and the brisket is always tender and juicy. Have eaten here at least 30 times over the last 6+ years and enjoyed every meal. More...

Love this place! When we go with work we always stop by and eat here. The sliced brisket plate is always so good. Smoked macaroni and cheese is amazing, beans are good hush puppies were good. What tops it off is the amazing cherry cobbler and pecan pie. Will definitely keep coming back, the staff is always friendly and keep your drinks full. If you arrive before 11 AM you need to wait outside. Around 12 it starts filling up. For 2 people brisket platters with 3 sides 2 drinks and cobbler/pie came out to around 40 bux, but it fills you up! More...
