Welcome to Kiser’s Barbeque, the ultimate destination for mouthwatering, authentic barbeque nestled in the scenic hills and embraced by the lush trees of Athens, Ohio. As a cherished family-owned establishment deeply rooted in our community, we take tremendous pride in delivering the highest quality smoked meats and homestyle dishes. At Kiser’s, we firmly believe that barbeque is not merely a meal; it’s a remarkable culinary journey that brings people together.

The Finest BBQ Experience in Athens, Ohio

What truly distinguishes us is our unwavering commitment to excellence. Each cut of meat we meticulously prepare undergoes a precise seasoning process, slow-smoked over fragrant hardwood, and crafted with utmost care. Whether you’re yearning for tender brisket, succulent pulled pork, or flawlessly charred ribs, our skilled pitmasters utilize time-honored techniques to produce barbeque that tantalizes your taste buds and melts in your mouth. Accompany your barbeque feast with our delectable homemade sides, such as creamy mac and cheese and tangy coleslaw, to elevate your dining experience to new heights.

But the experience doesn’t stop there. Indulge in our signature flavors with hand-dipped milkshakes, featuring a variety of irresistible options. From classic favorites to unique creations, our milkshakes perfectly complement our Carolina Pork BBQ Sandwich and Carolina Mushroom BBQ Sandwich, creating a harmony of flavors that will leave you craving for more. For a refreshing twist, try our Frostop Root Beer Floats, a delightful combination of our signature root beer and creamy ice cream. And if you’re in the mood for a simple treat, we also offer hand-dipped ice cream by the cone or dish, satisfying your sweet tooth with every creamy bite.

Indulge in our signature menu items, such as the mouthwatering Pork BBQ. Hickory-smoked for up to 18 hours daily, our pork is hand-chopped and served with soft white bread, house-made pickles, and pickled red onions. It’s a true delight for barbeque enthusiasts seeking authentic flavors.

For an authentic Texas-style BBQ experience, sink your teeth into our legendary Beef Brisket. We offer a 12-hour hickory-smoked prime brisket, meticulously trimmed and rubbed with our own Bad Boy Beef Rub. Choose between our lean cut, bursting with beef and smoke flavor, or our wet cut, perfectly balanced with just the right amount of beef, smoke, and fat. Accompanied by your choice of Kiser’s Barbeque Sauce on the side, this is a brisket that lives up to its reputation.

Explore our menu further to discover delectable options like our Rib Tips. Cut from premium spare ribs, these tips are expertly rubbed with our Big Hoss Pork Rub and hickory-smoked for six hours. To achieve a delightful contrast of textures, we finish them with a quick drop in the fryer, resulting in a crisp exterior and a juicy, smoky interior. Customize your experience by picking your favorite Kiser’s Barbeque Sauce, either tossed with the rib tips or served on the side. Accompanied by soft white bread, house-made pickles, and pickled red onions, these rib tips are a true indulgence for BBQ aficionados.

At Kiser’s Barbeque, we invite you to immerse yourself in the rich flavors of our carefully crafted barbeque while indulging in the delightful companionship of our hand-dipped milkshakes, Frostop Root Beer Floats, and hand-dipped ice cream. Join us for a truly unforgettable dining experience where every bite and sip brings joy and satisfaction.
