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 Everett 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

Just simply the most delicious BBQ

Just simply the most delicious BBQ you can find locally! My wife and I enjoy it so much that we decided to order their ribs, brisket, and chicken to share with our friends who joined us for my 65th birthday party. Topped it off with servings of their mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw, and cornbread and everyone was super satisfied! The staff at j&l's Everett location are super friendly and courteous...the quality of the food and service are superior.

I was in town for a concert nearby and stopped in for some brisket and pull pork. Also had Mac-n-cheese and red mashed potatoes with gravy. Very delicious!!!! Would definitely eat there again the next time I'm in town.

Could smell the BBQ 3 blocks away, so went on a hunt for it! Glad I stumbled into the best BBQ I have had in many years. Lady (from Grand Bay, AL) that took my order seemed to recognize my Alabama accent immediately made me feel at home and explained their process and most desired dishes.

If you are looking for Texas like bbq, look no further. I had the brisket with two sides meal and my mouth is still watering as I think of eating the brisket. It was moist, flavorful and had a bit of fat. Good bbq sauce. They have mild or spicy, I mixed both and really enjoyed it. I had the Mac and cheese. It was good, buttery and cheesy and very filling. The cowboy caviar was good but I thought it had too much liquid and almost needed a side of chips or something to eat with. Overall would go back!
