Best Texas BBQ north of the Minnesota River is Baker’s Ribs Jeremy Iggers, Star Tribune

The pork ribs were tender and the meat literally fell of the bone.a compliment to the pit masters patience. Diedre Schipani, Minnesota Monthly

The best Baker’s output is a trio of pulled pork, spare ribs and sausage links, the only top grade sausage in the metro.

Andrew Zimmern

Best barbecue in the Midwest! Brisket it to die for and the ribs, pulled pork, and smoked turkey are absolutely great. Love the beans and tomato sides – but got to have the dirty rice! Great people in Al and Scott who clearly love what they do for a living. Every time I visit the Twin Cities, I find time to stop at Baker’s Ribs – the smell alone is worth the drive. Bob Neiers

Being from Texas will give this BBQ a 10 a freaking 10 for Minnesota the ribs were darn good brisket was smoked well and the potato salad was on point the sweet tea was a little sweeter than the Texas tea I’m used to but good overall! Joseph Gonzales

Bakers gets the 3 most important thing right: People, Process, and Product. Their superb and unmatched flavor and food quality is what brings everyone in, and their personable and authentic employees and restaurant atmosphere is what keeps everyone coming back. Their menu has a wide variety of options, and gives you the choice to “mix and mingle” your meats/sides of choice. Ignore the comments stating that it is too pricey, as a standard meal with no drink cost $8 after tax. For the quality, this is a steal, and is what has solidified Baker’s as an area favorite in my book! Trenton Mumbleau

Great ribs and brisket. Even better service. Very friendly! Dwight Stevens

Authentic Texas ribs done right! Very flavorful and tender. Good service and fair prices. Mike Wheeler

Pulled pork sandwich and 1/2 slab of ribs was great. I’ll be back to try something else. Scotty Quick

Best ribs north of Kansas City. Great operation too. Dan Meier

Ribs are amazing, I come from Wisconsin to eat here. Angela Dziengel

The guys behind the counter always smiling! The ribs are always tender and seasoned just perfectly. The baked beans are out of this world, and their potato salad is really good. It’s nice for take out or meet some friends and sit in the ‘picnic’ area. Love Baker’s Ribs! April Anderson
