I grew up just barley in Lakeland....far north one foot in the Green Swamp. At least once a year I drive about an hour to stop by here for some of (if not the best) BBQ known to man! Everything is good there! If you live on the North Side and you haven't eaten here you are missing out! The... More

On Wednesday they have thick cut bone on pork chops for lunch. They season and grill them to perfection. Tender, juicy, and the perfect amount of smoke. DELICIOUS!

Quick service - great BBQ! Cash only! Friendly guys behind the counter. Delicious big ribs, tasty baked beans, and awesome potato salad. Sweet tea and a nice fluffy fresh roll finished off the meal. Small and clean eating area (also some tables outside). Especially great is they are pro-America and pro-law enforcement. Nice to see! We'll definitely be back for... More

The food is very good if they have it. You almost need to phone ahead to make sure they have the meat you want to eat. They basically cook only what they think they will sell that day. When it's gone it's gone. They are adding a eat in area.

First, it is CASH ONLY! No credit/debit cards accepted. Secondly, get there early! They only have/cook enough that they think they can sell in one day. If go... More

GREAT BBQ PLACE!!!! Simple menu. Side dishes are all home made. We had the small rib plate & pulled pork plate. DEEEELICIOUS! Good value. Great food. Hard to beat that combination. Don't let the exterior fool you. It's all about the food inside.

Some of the best BBQ you will find anywhere! We've eaten there several times and are never disappointed. The food is reasonable and plentiful. Oh, make sure you have cash though -- no credit cards accepted. And they're only open for lunch (11-2), except for Friday and Saturday (11-8). I believe they have steaks on Friday evenings. I have yet... More
