Comfort food at its best, very accomendating. Great tasting and very cool people. Weather permitting you can eat on the outside tables or take home .

I honestly hate leaving bad reviews. But we just moved here. We've been visiting all the restaurants. This is the most disgusting food I've ever put in my mouth. Everything has been awesome.

I must say this place was cute and pretty busy so I thought I'd give it a shot after reading some of the reviews. The server was very friendly and attentive as well as the cook and cashier. The food was a let down though....More

Good , smoky BBQ. Meat especially the sausage and ribs are really good. Cheese platter appetizer was cool. Try it. Sides were nominal. Service is lightning quick. Nice folks.

The barbecue and the tenderloin sandwiches are not good. The meat was so dry and tasteless. No seasoning. Should not have to drench meat with sauce and slaw. The chicken plate is not worth the money. It was dry and had to add slaw and...More

Food was ok, but you have to fight the flies if you eat outside. The inside is very plain, but it is one of the best restaurants in the Pickwick area

After a long day on the lake, the kids were starving! Easy getting in and wasn't too crowded. (Timing was impeccable) The food didn't waste much time coming out. Ribs were very good; not tough and had good taste. Impressed with even a children's rib...More

Great place for dinner after a day on the lake. Great service great food and a awesome atmosphere. You have to get a cheese plate no trip to the rib cage is complete without a cheese plate.

This place is pretty small, so get there early or get it to go. The BBQ is pretty good here and its the only place we ate at this weekend where the service wasn't completely rude or idiotic.

You owe it to TA readers to post this place. It is amazing food and cheap prices. I will be glad to post the first review. We found it only through Urban Spoon and boy were we glad. They do not have a website. Family run - seats 30 people inside - some outside. Small quaint and very American. BEST key lime pie EVER - all 8 of us took a whole one home with us. Ribs fall off the bone. Management is down-home, why rush, American's finest.
