Better than generous portions for the price! Some of the better smoked brisket and meats I've had. My husband had the brisket and I tried the three meat platter! Yum!!! We also ordered the q tator! Such good comfort. We over indulged a bit bit totally enjoyed it! They have an awesome staff too!

Price was right, but food was just okay. The cheese fries were pretty sad, but the BBQ was good. Sweet tea was great!

My husband and I love the food...very good. We live in Statesboro but will go over and eat there quite often. Sometimes my husband will go over there, order and then we eat here at home!

Great BBQ. We had pulled pork, brisket and ribs. We visit here about once a month and they have the best potato salad. I tried the sweet puffs tonight and they were awesome!

Nice surprise find! Delicious! I had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese. Hubby had beef brisket with cheese and fried okra. Both sides needed a bit of salt & pepper, still tasty. Get Buck sauce on side if you try it.

Thank Tennille H
