A fun place with local flair, you have to eat here for lunch or dinner. I always get the pulled pork sandwich.

they actually do a great hamburger, but the pulled pork or pulled chicken or beef plate comes on a decent bun, not too thick, not too thin, and two sides are included; the bbq beans contain large dice of onion and green bell peppere, nice...More

I dropped in about ten years ago and left after eating two or three bites. Maybe there are new owners now but back then the food was terrible.

Decent barbecue, a little overpriced. Very friendly family run place. Feel free to bring the kids-my grands love the cheeseburgers and grilled cheese. Very good pies and cakes. Nothing fancy, but who wants a fancy barbecue joint?

I'm from Memphis, with great barbecue, smokey and moist. This was a disappointing lunch. The barbecue had very little flavor, and was on the dry side. However, some of their barbecue sauces were really good.

The wet ribs are wonderful. Can't say enough about the sweet sauce. I didn't leave a single drop of it behind. Thanks for a great meal!

The place is a little rough looking, could benefit from some TCL and Top Job, but our BBQ was good. Kinda pricey given the restaurant. The place was busy though. Very friendly outgoing owner who appreciated our business. We shared a slab of ribs.
