In the Pacific Northwest, we understand the craving for a hearty BBQ dinner. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to provide a haven where you can indulge in succulent brisket, tender ribs, and a variety of slow-smoked meats accompanied by a wide selection of delectable sides, come rain or shine. J and L BBQ Snohomish WA is more than a restaurant; it’s a culinary experience where the legacy of Texas BBQ is served with a side of old-fashioned hospitality.

The Story of J and L BBQ’s Culinary Journey

As a native to Snohomish County, I have the ability to create the best BBQ ever tasted in our area or Texas. My grandpappy grew up in North Carolina and taught my Dad and I how to cook BBQ. So our meats are not lacking in down home flavor.

My daughter is an inspiration to me, in fact she is the “L” in J and L BBQ. Years of cooking, events, trade shows and catering gave me the experienced I needed to open my own restaurant. It was always my dream! 

So whether you come in for the fast dine in service or grab take-out on a busy day we’ll be here, serving up our brand of Northwest hospitality with a hint of hickory.

J&L BBQ Reviews

They hit the mark on all points.

This is a review from their catering. I consider myself someone that knows BBQ very well as I do a lot of smoking myself. They hit the mark on all points. Brisket was tender, has a great bark. Pulled pork and chicken were fantastic, the cornbread was A+++ and the Mac and cheese was delicious! I live in Tacoma but will come back when I’m in the area.

If I could give them more stars, I would. Great service, great people, along with the best food I have ever tasted. Everything is made with perfection. When I work in the area, I’ll stop by here after hitting the gym, and the tri tip/ brisket meal just hits the spot every time.

Excellent pit stop for late lunch on the way back from a day hike at Lake 22. Super friendly staff. They serve cinnamon butter with the corn bread. I would have liked a little more meat for the price, but bbq is always pricey no matter where ya go! Delish!
