The ambiance and people are as fantastic as the food at Batchelor’s Pad BBQ in Fountain Hills. Exceptional BBQ brisket! No wonder they’re always sold out.
A friend of mine recommended this place for everything barbecue, and he was absolutely right. Flavorful, perfectly smoked and tender with just the right kick! Looking at the menu, the food may seem typical, but don’t let that fool you. From their smoked meat, nachos, tacos, and sliders to the famous open-faced sandwiches, you can’t go wrong. Love their twist of the all-time staple Mac ‘N Cheese.
The smoked turkey is my personal favorite, next to the brisket. If this is your first time at Batchelor’s, get the Pulled Pork Nachos, too. Also, the Caramel Apple Pie was a wonderful surprise for me. I would love to try the other desserts next time, that’s for sure.
Owners Mary and Eric Batchelor personally go from one table to another, making sure everyone is having a good time and enjoying the food and drinks. Speaking of drinks, they offer a wide variety of booze from local breweries. Their Happy Hour starts at 2:00 PM, a perfect time to chill after your lunch.
Live band, lots of booze, and great food – Batchelor’s Pad BBQ is going to be another go-to hang-out with my friends.
