Here are four restaurants in Genesee County where BBQ is the name of the game.

Smokin' Eagle BBQ & Brew, 9 Main Street, LeRoy
Located in a 200 year old building in downtown LeRoy, the Smokin' Eagle BBQ & Brew is great place to visit during lunch, dinner and into the night.

Smokin' Eagle also regularly features live music.
Center Street Smokehouse, 20 Center Street, Batavia
When a restaurant sells over "30 Tons of BBQ each year" they know what they are talking about. Many of their items are slow-cooked over hickory and oak wood, giving the food an amazing taste.
