I decided to give a try over the weekend for this restaurant. I tried the baby back ribs meal. it was really good. I loved it. After finishing my meal, the waitress was really nice to take/clean my table asking my enjoyment. It's really nice gesture. I recommend this restaurant, and would take my family there. Oh, they have TV... More

The best and reasonably priced if you use the coupons. Clean and great food presentation. Parking is convenient and if you time it right you can go the the AMC movie theater after or before!

Have had dinner here several times over the years. Very casual--order at counter. Excellent place to go with sports teams or kids groups. Beer and cheap wine available.

Best BBQ pulled pork sandwich in the area for the price! Fries are crispy hot and fresh and the beans are heavenly! Everything we've had here has been good, but the aforementioned is what we like best. Just wish they would improve on the potato salad a bit - we're from Oklahoma and prefer more in the way of mustard... More

I love BBQ. Mostly southern BBQ. I've been to more chain, small store and side of the road joints than I can count. This is simply some of the best I've ever found. The sides are great, the service friendly. My only fault ... No Brunswick stew. But that too much to expect this far west.

Located in a strip mall. This is a fast food BBQ place, go to the counter to order and food is quickly brought to your table. Portion size is ok, food is just average. Tried the BBQ beef. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.
