I stopped by here while passing through Modesto. The place looked a bit shabby from the outside and inside the decor needs a bit of work too, but it certainly was a friendly place. It was quite late so it wasn't that busy and I was served very quickly. I had a combo of super tender and smoky ribs and... More

Everything we had was smoked to perfection. Sides were delicious. Wish they had beer. Reportedly good cobbler but too full to try it. Will have to have the cobbler first next time.

I had a brisket sandwich but it was full of sauce that was too sweet. Potato salad was very full of mayo. Muffin was good!

We are so happy we came across this place! Though it doesn't look like much from the outside (with its large smoker parked out front), and the inside isn't much better, (very simple seating, but clean) this place has great BBQ. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich ($9) and a half-rack ribs ($15)....so moist and delicious! They were smoked to... More

I love bbq so I'm not sure why it took me this long to come here. I ordered the brisket, ribs, Mac n cheese and yams. This brisket is soooooo good. The ribs weren't bad either but the sauce was delicious. I definitely would order the brisket again and again and again. I do want to try the tri tip... More

The raving reviews for this place is false or maybe people do not really know about food?? This is boiled chicken with BBQ sauce only. Kind of expensive for a half chicken no sides is $12.80 and a skinny chicken, lots of bones and skin. We eat neither. Dog was happy. When we drove by we saw their big BBQ... More

Stopped and Doc's and had his pulled pork, ribs, chicken and tri-tip...it was all good, but the chicken and pulled pork stood out. The chicken was moist, tender, and tasty. Black eyed peas, greens, and yams made great side dishes, and my wife and I would order the yams over and over and over.

Oh, yes, a tri-tip sandwich with sauce, and no knife needed. This place is 2 blocks of highway 99 in Modesto. It is nothing fancy, and that is ok with me. I just wanted a tasty BBQ sandwich, cole sla, and a Coke. That is what I got !
