The BBQ pork and smoke turkey plates are my families favorites. They give a fair portion and you get your choice of side... A good choice is the sweet potato. They have a special little topping that you put on it consisting of cinnamon, butter and sugar (I believe). The french fries are the crinkle cut and when they come... More

I ordered a party pack to go for my book club of twelve gals. They especially raved about the ribs, and loved the BBQ beans and potato salad that came with the pack. We certainly got our money's worth! I would go back there for lunch or dinner anytime!

I saw that they had beef ribs, so I went for carry out so I could watch the baseball game in my hotel. I ordered the beef ribs (came with one piece of garlic bread & two very small sides - beans & slaw), baked sweet potato and an order of okra (large order not bad but not really crisp)... More

The beef ribs and brisket have been by far my favorite items. The salad bar is a nice touch as well. The lunch menu is well priced and the portions in my opinion are perfectly sized not too big but not too small either.

The taste of the meat is bland; essentially no savory taste in the juices of any of the meats I had. The only thing you really get is the smell of wood smoke primarily coming from the exterior of the meat. We spent approx $60 on our take out meal and I must say I found myself disappointed. The fried... More

Stopped in tonight with one of our son's and it was excellent. The owner Rob waited on us and everything was perfect. The brisket and beef sandwiches were excellent. The place was very busy, very clean and the food came out really hot. I was in the mood for BBQ and it was great.

I can't even tell you how much I love this place! The staff is extremely friendly, the food is to die for, and it is clean! Wait times aren't extremely long, and it's a big place. It used to be called Scruby's, but it doesn't matter because it is an amazing BBQ place. I love the pulled pork, baked beans,... More
