This place advertises that it has been in business over 100 years, should have closed years ago. Food was awful and total experience let us down. If I had gone in nasty restroom with stalls rusting down first, I'd never have made it to a table. I had a country fried steak that was tough and gristly. She had BBQ... More

This is a must stop for us whenever we are traveling through Dothan - for about 30 years now. Love the "camp" stew - I grew up calling it Brunswick stew. Nicely spiced! I had the slice pork BBQ plate which came with fries and slaw. My husband had the chopped pork BBQ sandwich with baked beans and fries. Good... More

The service was great and the folks that work there are all very nice. In that regard, it's southern hospitality at its best. The BBQ, however, was just okay - as for me I'd rate it about a 5 or 6 on a scale of 1-10. But this place is a dump - be forewarned - it's nothing like a... More

BBQ average at best - not much atmosphere and took unusually long time to be waited on and to receive our order.

The BBQ was pretty good. The menu was was not that flexible (get this or nothing). The fries was pitiful. If I go back again I would just order the meat and get my own sides.

The worst BBQ sandwich I have ever had. It was supposed to be chipped. It was shredded pork in a bland, watery, tomato based bbq sauce on a bun. No pickles, no slaw and more bread than meat. It tasted like wet bread.

Not thrilled with their menu but for the price, it's definitely a decent bbq place. Many of the locals love it, so I'd say it's worth the visit.
