Rodeo City Bar-B-Q

Come and get your Jar B-Q! This special concoction of deliciousness was created by Leann Adams, one of the owners of this family owned and ran joint.

The limited edition creation pulls together all of Rodeo City Bar B-Q's crowd favorites. In it, you'll find pulled pork, baked beans, and coleslaw served up in one of the restaurants fun signature glasses. Pair the Jar B-Q with a boot of beer, literally, and you've got yourself a delicious meal. Feel free to order the Jar B-Q to go and a server will bring it to you car side upon arrival.

You won't want to put it off, this special feast is only available from July-September.


Family is the strongest ingredient in Rodeo BBQ's success recipe, 4 generations of it, to be exact. At any given time, you'll find any one of the eight currently active family members at the establishment.

The roots are deep in Ellensburg for this family. Leann, her mother, and father are all Central Washington University grads. This is year 25 for this longtime Ellensburg establishment and there are no plans to slow down in the near future.


We sold 3700 servings of baked beans last year and sold 2100 servings of coleslaw. These are the two highest selling side orders. This coleslaw is a special recipe created by her family with a homemade dressing and has fresh cabbage cut daily one of the secret ingredients is horseradish.
