Stopped here because we felt like BBQ. Didn't know much about the place, where it was or that it had good TA ratings. The food was delicious, services was good and it's a nice little place. You order off the menu when you go in...More

I took my family here and the pulled chicken was very good. I like the BBQ sauce and my kids liked the mac and cheese.

There isn't a huge selection of local dining options in the area, and it's even harder to find bbq around here. Food was good, although portions were on the smaller side. Price was fair. Staff was pleasant. Brisket sandwich was good but needed more brisket....More

The fish fry and hot dogs are terrific. The Wall of Fame is a nice addition. The new menu is easy to read. Will and Linda are great owners.

Solid food. Ribs had a lot of flavor. Coleslaw was pretty good. Served with warm fairly sweet sauce which was a nice touch. Could have used a spicy version in my opinion.

Thank you for the nice review. As for spicy sauce just ask at counter and we have a couple to choose from but most customers like the honey bbq with the ribs.
