We have visited here several times and each time has been excellent. Sharks is like a western style barbecue where you go through the line and they literally slice the meat in front of your eyes. The service staff is friendly and if it takes...More

Using TripAdvisor, we discovered this restaurant. We had their pulled pork sandwich. Large portion, hot, and good flavor. Friendly atmosphere. Good value. Good food!

Always excited to try new BBQ, tried their take out. Disappointed. Not up to Dickey's or Woodpile. Closer to touristy Famous Daves. In all fairness, will try eating in next time. But with options available, there's less incentive to return.

Dropped by for dinner. Brisket was excellent, pulled pork tender, mixed with too much fat. Sides were disappointing. Beans, heavy with cinnimon; mac and cheese, dry; and gumbo, not right, like a heavy load of okra was added to regular batch. Just disappointing.

Everything here is made to perfection. The brisket is the best I've had from around the country. All the sides are homemade. Even the bread. Great friendly service. Must try!!
