Jessie Rae's BBQ
Voted best BBQ in Las Vegas 2017. Pulled pork, brisket, ribs, chicken all done low and slow! Amazing sauces all home made!
Founder Mike Ross named Jessie Rae's after his wife, who is not only a source of inspiration, but also bought his first smoker. He started small, perfected his skills on the competition circuit, and now has a restaurant that happens to be just steps away from Allegiant Stadium. A proud local, the chef describes his barbecue as "Vegas-style," mixing together elements from different regions. Ross is a former bartender who makes his own sauces with the same knack for complex recipes you'd find in a well-made cocktail. The signature God Sauce, for example, is sweet with a hint of vinegar and spice. When smoking meats, Ross and his team like to experiment with different types of wood, giving customers subtle differences in taste with each return visit. Ultimately, Jessie Rae's is about having fun. Ask about The Fortress (a rack or ribs stuffed with fries, mac n' cheese, and a choice of meat with a hot link and sauce on top) or "Loaded in Vegas" combinations of meat over waffle fries, tater tots, mac n' cheese, or BBQ mashed potatoes.
