Very friendly & helpful staff to add to a great looking BBQ restaurant. I had a brisket sandwich & my wife had a pulled pork sandwich. I would rate the food as acceptable. Not going to race back there for more.

Ate at the Lakeland restaurant several times, always had a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Their ribs and smoked wings are fantastic! A must if you are in the Lakeland area.

The Brunswick Stew is fantastic! We travel over an hour just to have the Brunswick Stew. The spinach and steak salad is one of my favorites as well. The food arrives hot and the staff is attentive.

The tacos are called street tacos, normal street tacos have corn tortillas not flower. The wings weren’t cooked all the way, and the service kind of sucked.

I don't know. At one time they were part of the Darden chain (red lobster, Olive Garden, etc.). An educated guess is 10 years or so.
