J and L BBQ stands as a testament to a lifelong passion for BBQ by our owner, Joel. We are a beacon for BBQ enthusiasts who crave that authentic, slow-cooked, and smoky flavor all year round. Joel’s commitment to offering the best BBQ in Snohomish County is evident in every dish served. Our restaurant is not just a place to eat; it’s a destination where every visit is a celebration of rich flavors and traditional cooking techniques.

In the Pacific Northwest, we understand the craving for a hearty BBQ dinner. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to provide a haven where you can indulge in succulent brisket, tender ribs, and a variety of slow-smoked meats accompanied by a wide selection of delectable sides, come rain or shine. J and L BBQ Monroe WA is more than a restaurant; it’s a culinary experience where the legacy of Texas BBQ is served with a side of old-fashioned hospitality.

The Story of J and L BBQ’s Culinary Journey

As a native to Snohomish County, I have the ability to create the best BBQ ever tasted in our area or Texas. My grandpappy grew up in North Carolina and taught my Dad and I how to cook BBQ. So our meats are not lacking in down home flavor.

My daughter is an inspiration to me, in fact she is the “L” in J and L BBQ. Years of cooking, events, trade shows and catering gave me the experienced I needed to open my own restaurant. It was always my dream! 

So whether you come in for the fast dine in service or grab take-out on a busy day we’ll be here, serving up our brand of Northwest hospitality with a hint of hickory.

J&L BBQ Reviews

By far my favorite BBQ restaurant!

By far my favorite BBQ restaurant! Their food is delicious, pit master Austin does a fabulous job making perfect meat everyday. Consistency is key and the flavor and texture is always on point. Tina is always so much fun to chat with while she's putting together our food, her friendly personality is very welcoming. The monroe location has more seating and is better for bigger groups but all locations are great.

Being from the South, we appreciate good BBQ which is few and far between up here. I was pleasently suprised to find this spot on a whim, and we were not dissapointed. At first glance the prices seemed kinda high, but once I saw how big the meat portions are, you realize where the money went. We got the brisket-topped baked potato and a brisket sandwich. Both were delicious, and the brisket had the right amount of smoke and moisture. Great job J&L. We'll be back to sample that pulled pork next

Best BBQ in Monroe! Brisket reminds me of Texas! Glad I found this place. The Thanksgiving turkey is amazing! Well worth it. I go here at least once a month.

What a gem of a place!

What a gem of a place! The customer service right off the bat was fantastic and the woman behind the counter answered all our questions and made some great suggestions. The food was absolutely stunning. The brisket just falls apart with this killer crust. The cornbread comes with a honey cinnamon butter made in house that takes it to the next level, and the homemade baked beans have just the right amount of flavor. That isn't even to mention the homemade BBQ sauces that come in mild and spicy. Both have great flavor and the spicy has just enough kick, but it's not your typical kick from a sauce. SO.GOOD. Can't wait to come back!
