I really like this restaurant! I normally get the beef ribs or the bbq chicken wings with mac and cheese, cabbage or collard greens, the potato salad is good as well.

This counter-service restaurant was strongly recommended to us by a waitress at another restaurant as her "go to" soul food/ BBQ place. We were not impressed - the food quality was ok, we had wings, rib tips and ribs, however food prices were quite high (think good sit-down restaurant prices), and it took 15 minutes for the food to arrive.

I was excited to find out This Is It was near my work however I was disappointed when I purchase my veggie plate, which consisted of collard greens, Mac n Cheese and sweet potato soufflé. Mac n Cheese and sweet potato soufflé I would give a 4 out of 5 but the collard greens thumbs down.

I absolutely loved this restaurant. The food was great and there were so many choices. This was a smaller location, but the food was still of quality. During my second time going to the restaurant on my third day of my vacation, some kind of way it was a miscommunication between the cashier and the cook, after I paid my... More

The food is delicious...no doubt. On my last visit it seemed every customer was upset at the amount of food served and was causing a ruckus. My portions were not enough to justify the price. I guess I will not return which is sad because the food is excellent.

I have been here a few times and the Smyrna location is nowhere as good as it's other location. The food does not taste fresh at all and takes forever for your food. I swear the last time i was there the mac n cheese tasted like bleach. Good to know they clean the pans, but you really need to... More

Our hotel (Double Tree) recommended this place, & it did not disappoint . One of my favorite BBQ places. Ribs & Chicken had a good smoke on it. BBQ was excellent. We came in for Brisket (this location no longer sells it). The pork Rob's were meaty & tender. Chicken was moist. Greens were good as well with Mac n... More

I have known about this chain of restaurants for over 20 years from the one on Memorial Dr, I used to frequent when I lived in Decatur. I can't say for sure, but I thought it used to be affordable. Now I still go sometimes, but I stand and look at the menu and when I compare it to buying... More

This is a local restaurant that served fresh and yummy Southern cuisine. I had barbecue chicken, collard greens and mac & cheese. It was all extremely well seasoned and the restaurant was very clean. I will be back.
