On Yelp, Ralph H, Huntington, gave it five stars.
“I'm a fan of BBQ and have toured places where smoked meat is taken seriously (e.g., Memphis; Kansas City),” he wrote. “This new restaurant excels at BBQ. The cooking is spot-on and the homemade sauce is delicious.”
Skeptical when it comes to barbecue sauce, Ralph said it took that waiter three times to convince him to try theirs.
“I finally gave in and discovered the sauce is as good as he promised,” he said.
He also complimented the Peruvian menu.
“What makes this place even more interesting are exotic Peruvian dishes featuring seafood and other ingredients,” he added. “I'm going back tonight to try more of the menu.”
Bolivar I, of Elmhurst, agreed that Smoked Barn Of Peru is the real deal.
“I was not disappointed,” he wrote.
