Brister’s Smokehouse Barbecue is one of the best BBQ places in Northern Louisiana. Located right off Interstate 20 on Cooktown Road in Ruston, LA, Brister’s is a great place to stop for a quick bite to eat whether you have all day or if you’re just passing through. Their service is fast, their prices inexpensive, and their food is delicious. Locals, including many students from Louisiana Tech, pile in at lunch time to get a taste of what they have to offer. Brister's slow smokes new meat every day guaranteeing a fresh lunch or supper full of flavor. It is well worth the drive.

A few personal favorites include, but are not limited to:

  • The famous Barbecue nachos - Dowling's Hickory smoked cheddar cheese, baked beans, bbq sauce topped with a dollop of sour cream, and your choice of meat.

  • Pulled pork BBQ sandwich on jalapeno cheese sourdough bread.

  • The Scatterload is another popular item. This is a famous sandwich layered with minced ham, turkey, hot link, sausage, brisket, and cheese and it is amazing! Highly recommended by all who’ve tried it.

  • HOMEMADE PIE - "Just like grandma used to make". Only available on Thursday-Saturday your choice of apple or peach.

In addition to their dine-in restaurant, Brister’s not only has a convenient drive-thru window, but it also caters for parties and other events! We’ve had them provide the meal on several occasions for us, and no one is ever disappointed or leaves hungry!

I’ll close for the day since I know your mouth is watering! Stay tuned to read more about Ruston’s Local Businesses!

This sounds like a great place to dine. Barbeque is my husband's favorite food. When we travel we try out new BBQ places.
