Decent BBQ. The loaded French fry appetizer is really good. Both times we’ve went they’ve been sold out of brisket and two hearted beer.

There are SOOO many barbecue places in Lansing. But I have to say that Findley's is my fav. They get the best naturally smoky flavors without ANY sauce. Services is always good. Worth checking it out if you are a truly smoky meat fan.

Stopped for gas on a road trip, and decided to give this place a try. Decent bbq, good fries. Didn't care for the baked beans, but otherwise pretty good place to stop.

We are excited to have our own smokehouse located on the outdoor patio of each of our Finley's locations -- where we smoke our meats (Texas Beef Brisket, Georgia-style Pulled Pork, Michigan Raised "White Meat" Turkey, St. Louis Ribs and more) all low and slow for up to 17 hours over apple wood to bring you what we feel is the Best BBQ around!...Now Catering! Our Black Angus steaks are hand-trimmed prepared the way you like. Not just ordinary steaks! But great tasting steaks! Baby back Ribs Of course, our menu wouldn't be complete without our award-winning baby back ribs. Positively No Doubt! The Best Baby Back Ribs Money Can Buy. Tender fall-off-the-bone basted with our award-winning Kansas City barbecue sauce. Prime Rib Our prime rib starts with carefully selected beef. Then we hand-rub each rib with our special seasonings then we slow roast it for hours.
