We were spending the weekend in the area and we always look for "non-chain" restaurants when we travel. Trip Advisor is our go-to for recommendations and this one popped up first. So glad we went!! We had the sampler platter and everything was delicious. The sides were really good too. It's a small restaurant with a casual, friendly vibe. The... More

We've stopped in for lunch a few times now. I don't know how they achieve the tasty crust but I sure don't care either. Pulled pork and brisket are really, really good.

My sister who lives in Easton ordered take out for seven. We had the special on Wednesday of BBQ meat loaf with collard greens; Texas baked beans, and a roll. The meat loaf was very tasty. The collard greens were exactly what you would expect them to be. The Texas baked beans had a little too much spice to my... More

We were unfamiliar with the Easton area, so my husband and I visited the BBQ joint based on a local's recommendation. Their BBQ is really yummy. The onion rings were good too, as was the garden salad, which was very fresh. This is a very casual place and a lot of fun. If we're ever back in Easton, we'll definitely... More

We stayed in Easton this weekend, just kind of getting away. We had eaten here before, so I figured we'd try it again. Don't be deceived by the small appearance of the restaurant. We did takeout (we were staying down the block) and the food is as good as you'll get in Charleston SC. I had the 2 meat platter;... More

Excellent BBQ, they seem to run out of smoked chicken wings fast. Good assortment of meats, not a fancy restaurant but comfortable.

Food is always on point. I have never had a bad meal here. We don't even live in the area anymore, but make a point to stop when we are in the area.

Copying the review of another person as that is exactly what my husband and I have said. These guys (and gals) know what they're doing; in house smoker, drink specials, even collards and pickles. Will return. Clean and elegant presentation. Juicy and tasty meats. Wish that this is in DC........ Then, we will visit very often. The restaurant made us... More
