This was good BBQ, other reviews rated the ribs very high, but I had the pork plate with beans and coleslaw. The BBQ pulled pork was good, but not the best that I have ever had. Coleslaw was crisp and tasteful, but the beans tasted like the ones you get from a can. Also credit cards weren't accepted just cash... More

I haven't had a thing on their menu that I don't like. They're chicken is probably my favorite, but their brisket is a close second I often get the nachos, but their potato salad is the best I've ever had!

Best barbecue in 15 contiguous counties, go and get a mix plate sampler if you can't make choices on your first visit. It's all good, and then a nice slice of coconut cream pie is a great ending to a fine meal.

We did a take out and the BBQ was GREAT! The service was a bit slow as we called ahead and placed our order for 16 people. They said ready in 1 hour - we waited 2. I have to say it was worth the wait - BBQ pork, baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad and buns....yum!

Ate here a couple years ago and enjoyed it. Tried it last night at 8pm and they were out of brisket and pork loin. They don't post it or write it on a board in plain view. We walked up to the counter and attempted to order twice and told they were out of items. We finally just asked what... More

If you're looking for upscale setting, this is not the place for you. BUT, if you are okay with a down home atmosphere and GOOD food at an affordable price, then check out this award winning BBQ restaurant. Hot, mild or set your scalp on fire ... you choose.

I had the loaded potato with pulled pork and it was great. I did like the sweet bbq sauce and the mustard sauce.

The coleslaw was brown and dry, as if it had been made last week. The pulled pork was served cold. Made the mistake of letting them "warm"it up by sticking it in the microwave, which dried it out. Dinner roll was soggy. Upholstery in booths is ripped and springs are broken. The restaurant itself is tired and dingy. Teenage staff... More

First time at this location and we were disappointed. The service was poor, the dining area was dark, and we had to move twice as the seating in the booths needs replacement - apparently the springs were broken? The counter clerk actually took a call-in order in the midst of my daughter telling the young lady which side items she... More
