The boneless wings were large chunks of breast meat battered and fried and flavorless - even though we ordered them with a dry rub. Thinking they would be wings, we requested blue cheese to dip, but it arrived in little tubs and was grey in...More

OK...where to start. Service, NON-EXISTENT. One waitress, over-worked, could not get anything correct. Had to apologize about everything. The food: Luke warm at best. Ribs supposed to be dry, sauce aside. Oops, got that wrong, slathered with sauce. Sweet potato fries, Luke warm, limp, not...More

So, so sad to say that the past few times I've been, the wings have changed. They are much, much smaller than they use to be and the flavor isn't quite what it use to be. Of all the things to mess with on the...More

Decided to eat here tonight while away from home on a business trip. I love BBQ, and so this was an obvious choice. I had the pork BBQ sandwich with a side of fried okra. The okra was pretty good after I added salt. It...More

One gets nervous when restaurants change ownership as Hokie Smokie did some time ago. No worries as the food quality and service are the same. I rate their BBQ pork the best in JCT. Cowboy beans are outstanding as well.
