This place is about the average local BBQ joint. The atmosphere is fine and the staff were friendly. Good fries and the pulled pork I got was good but was cold. They did have a long line though so maybe that was why. I will probably eat there again but wouldn't necessarily go out of my way for it.

The 4 of us enjoyed brisket, chicken, beans, Cole slaw, mac & cheese, French fried potatoes, garlic bread, and corn bread. We enjoyed the house bbq sauce with the meal. IMHO the tasty food was a little dry but definitely tasty. The Cole slaw was the best for me even though the French fries were from fresh cut potatoes an... More

First rate BBQ-every time; it's the only BBQ place I'll use when I cater events for business. The pulled pork is amazing and the brisket is the best I've ever had. Their sweet sauce puts it over the top!

My parents have tried it before and took us to Five Star last night for our first time and we loved it. My parents said they had ordered the lean brisket before and thought it was dry. We tried the fattier brisket last night and it was delicious. Moist, flavorful, so good. There were so many choices of sides and... More

The ribs were very good, the pulled pork excellent, and sadly the brisket was dry. Their sauces are also very good, as were the sides. Having spent a lot of time in the South, I am very particular about my ribs. I will go back, but can't say that is the best I've had.

We phoned in our order, picked it up and brought it home to enjoy. We ordered beef brisket, chicken and pork and it was all good. I didn't care so much for the mashed potatoes or the macaroni. The mashed potatoes would have been fine, except they were seasoned with too many herbs. The macaroni tasted smoked, which was confusing... More

met there for a business lunch today with a couple of colleagues. It is in an older house, quaint set up. Reception/ordering area has full wall blackboards with all the menu items posted. Food and price was good. It was a little slow getting the meal as it was prepared in front of us by one person, so it moved... More

If your looking for BBQ and not in Texas, look this place up. Kinda like a Texas place where you didn't come for the atmosphere. Had the ribs and they were perfect for my taste. Not over powering by smoke and they fall off the bone. Beans were good also. I would definitely return. Too bad no Lone Stars in... More

I was invited to a wedding luncheon while visiting from out of state. The facilities are old, but once I tasted the food, I forgot about the building! I loved the rosemary mashed potatoes, beef brisket, and rolls! We ate upstairs in the banquet room, and the meal was great!
