Barbecue

Barbecue season never ends at the Palomino Smokehouse!! Situated in the heart of downtown Calgary with the largest smoker in Western Canada. All of our meats are smoked low and slow everyday as we go through pounds of BBQ classics such as Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and Ribs. Our Smoked Chicken, New Orleans style Catfish Po'boy, award winning Chili and rib-sticking Macaroni & Cheese are also extremely popular with the locals. All of our BBQ sauces (House, Chipotle and Carolina Mustard) and Rubs are made in-house and are gluten free. On weekends we feature the famous Cowboy Brunch, our BBQ-inspired take on breakfast classics which are available for both early and not-so-early risers. We feature a large selection of beer, whiskey, bourbon and other spirits to quench your thirst.

    Server was amazing and was happy to split our Fat Platter into 5 separate bills. Food was great, plentiful and hot. If I have a criticism it would be to clean the bathrooms regularly and wash down the condiments containers.

    This was my first time eating at the Palomino Smokehouse. The food and service was terrific and the interior décor is so amazing and rustic. The meal portions are generous especially after adding sides. I would highly recommend.

    A wonderful Birthday treat for my Husband. We booked for lunch and was glad to see an atmosphere at 1145am! Seems a busy spot even more so at peak times. Service was great, staff were friendly and available to accommodate. The food was incredible, hot and fresh. It was a great experience.

    We went April 2,2022 before a concert at the Palace Theatre. Service was very good, food was hot and price isn't bad. My husband had ribs and there wasn't much smoke flavour and I had the smoked chicken wings and not much smoke flavour. They were all tasty though and never had such piping hot food for a smokehouse

    A great spot, love the dry ribs. Chairs we had were in rough shape and it was quite cold near the West Wall. Was out of our favorite beer and limited menu also.

    Nothing special, bar/smoke house. Felt welcome but service was nothing to chear about, not bad just fair. One had burger, was good but should warn people comes pink inside and/or give option how you’d like it. One had pitboss sandwich, again was tasty but seriously down sized from what it used to be, No longer worth $22.

    Our server was amazing so nice and told us about her fave breakfast food at the restaurant. She is definitely a great team member to have and your lucky to have her! (Black hair and long eyelashes) The food was also very good! The corn bread was very yummy. The only thing was the garlic fries (still good) but a bht to garlicky for us! Over all I would say 98% for everything!

    I went looking for corn fritters, corn bread, soup and none of it was available. They were even out of one of their special on tap beers. What happened Palomino?
