Great little BBQ restaurant in a strip mall. Simple decor, but comfortable, hospitable staff, good selection of beef, pork & chicken with choice of approximately 8 sauces. Side dishes exceptionally good (potato salad, coleslaw e.g.). Ribs looked incredibly good. Highly recommend.

Great pulled pork BBQ. I love it when you get a little of the charred ends. And do not, I repeat, do not pass on the potato salad. It is amazing.

This is a great place to eat. The meat is superb. They really know how to cook. Unlike most BBQ joints around here, this place serves you on a real plate with metal flatware. Drinks are in real glasses too! Good place.

Loved it! Very bare bones atmosphere. They obviously put their money into their food. Tender juicy meat and flavorful sauces. Loved the cheesy corn and potato salad.

They are your classic BBQ restaurant. Great food at a reasonable price. They have a few locations around central Arkansas.

Good menu selection with lots of choices. Rib tips are the best. Sides are all good. Nachos and baked potatoes with BBQ are also good.

Always find time to stop here. The pulled pork plate is my go to meal. Cole slaw and baked beans as my sides. Grab a sweet tea and sit down. Love the six sauces to choose from. I can never just pick one. Don’t expect...More

They don't typically deliver but it is worth picking up in my opinion. Easy parking; quick in and out.
