With out a doubt...,the worst food and service I have had in a long while. The waitress either was trained poo .rly or just had no aptitude for the job. The brisket was awful. Some had the texture of soft jerky and the rest was pure fat. The onions were 95% coating and 5% onion. Tasteless.... The owner needs help.

We come here often and have always had good food. Try the salad with pulled pork, beef brisket, & chicken for variety. It's a big meal! The pulled pork sandwich with homemade chips is my favorite. Also the brisket/pork combo is superb. With 6 or 7 different BBQ sauces, you are bound to find one that suits your palette! Haven't... More

Out out of town guests wanted BBQ. There was no question where to take them. They had the baby back ribs and brisket. We had our usual, chicken. Everything was delicious and based on there not being anything but bones left was testament to that. Always a treat to go to a place that is consistently good. The corn bread... More

This place is on my bucket list every year for 3 years now. Not fancy but really good with generous portions at reasonable prices. The ribs are six star as far as I'm concerned. Big menu choices. Not just BBQ

Delicious! Food & service is great. Always come here several times. When friends visit, they always want to go here a couple of times. Many items to choose from.

We ate here based on other online reviews and were not disappointed. We went for lunch and the lunch specials were very reasonably priced at $6.95. While some at our table got one of the lunch specials, I went for the Pulled Pork Sandwich and Okie Spuds (french fries) which was great. The Jalapeno Mango BBQ sauce was amazing! Others... More

We didn't have there ribs or chicken, our friends say it was very good. We did have fried scallops, shrimp and fish. They were all deep fried and tasted ok. A little to crispy for our taste. After a few bites, it all teased the same, over cooked.
