We visited this place a couple weeks ago. We are always excited to try new places. Just average meal. Not much smoke flavor. Sides tasted like GFS premade. No table service. Staff was friendly enough. Slightly overpriced. Won't go back.

Location is great. Service is exceptional. Prices are competitive. Food is uninspiring. This place reminded me a diner not a BBQ place. Ribs were ok. Pulled pork wasn't spectacular but still edible. The sides are small and lacked seasoning. The BBQ sauce seemed store bought....More

Stopped here off of I70. Looked like a good BBQ place. It is. Worth the stop. Pulled pork and pulled chicken was great. Might stop here on our way back to try the brisket.

Didn't expect much to be honest, as this place is in the middle of nowhere... but wow! Happened in on all-you-can-eat rib night... left stuffed with some fantastic ribs! If you're passing through, stop here!

It was good food for the price. The Service was fast and polite. Could have more selection on the bread like cornbread and other yummys.

Stopped in for dinner and I was not impressed. The counter service was very, very friendly and service was quick. The place was pleasant enough, even the bathroom was clean. The food was not all that good. I had a sample platter of ribs, brisket,...More

Stopped by while passing on the interstate. Pork barbecue sandwich tasted like store bought, Cole slaw was pretty good, baked beans were sweet.
