A WNY Family Tradition


Great Food For a Great Community

How We Got Started

Stan Krolick grew up on a dairy farm in Arcade before becoming a welder and construction worker. A construction accident in 1990 left him with a badly injured back, but opened the door to a future in barbeque. He founded Krolick’s BBQ as a way of helping raise funds for neighbors in his ravaged community after Arcade was devastated by flood waters in the late 90’s.

Nowadays, we’ve grown to over 15 employees. Folks from all over bring their family and friends for a picnic at our roadside stand, and we offer catering for parties and events. Of course, fundraising is still one of the most important parts of our business, helping churches, schools, teams, and organizations raise money.


Country Style Outdoor Picnic

When you visit our roadside stand, sit at one of our picnic tables or bring a blanket and find a spot on the lawn. Of course, you can also pick up your food to go to bring home to the family.

Our spot is kid-friendly, pet-friendly, and great for large groups.


The BBQ Roadside Stand is open from April 15 through mid October. During the season, we’re open Tuesday – Sunday, 11:00am – 7:30pm.


We have ample parking both in our lot, as well as along the road. You’ll always be able to find a spot, even at our busiest time.


You’re welcome to bring your well-behaved pets to the stand, please just keep ‘em on a leash.

“Each year my wife and I make the 40 minute ride down from Hamburg to witness one of the largest BBQ menus around. The service is always friendly and quick, and the food is exceptional. We'll be back!”
