Called our order in ahead of time and still waited 40 minutes when I got there to pick it up. The food was not very good. The side dishes tasted like they were perhaps pre-prepared. The meats were 'OK'. at best We weren't upset, but...More

Brisket is not to be missed and while it's a hike from the central property they run a trolley constantly. Great food, reasonable prices and plenty of it. Does it get any better? I think not.

The ribs and wings were great. The place was hopping and the wait staff wasn't thrilled about taking a carryout order (most people probably don't tip for c/o but they should) and it came pretty quickly. It was good and there are arcade games for...More

After reading all the bad reviews of this place, we were desperate for take out, so we gave it a shot. The baby backs were very good, and so were the memphis ribs. Even the baked beans were solid. I don't know what other reviewers...More
