We are back visiting Hampton and this was the first restaurant we visited - went for dinner on a Friday night and surprisingly it was not crowded at all...a far cry from visiting at lunch which we did on previous visits. This time I had one of their combo platters (ribs, brisket and half a chicken) and I was able... More

I live close by but rarely frequent this restaurant. I forget why between visits but always remember while there. The food tends to be dry. I look forward to the brisket because I don't make it at home. It has been dry on all three occasions. However, I do recommend the restaurant for catering. I have had three successful catering...

We all know their food is great but many don't know they have an incredible Bloody Mary Bar they set up on Sundays. The only thing they pre-pour for you is the vodka. There is regular Mary mix, Spicy Mary mix, Regular Tomato juice and Spicy Tomato juice. There is practically anything else as far as herbs and spices to... More

I wanted to check this place out. The hostess them placed me in the back room and sat me at the bar. The seats were way too high for me to sit. The bartender, a burly black man, gave me an attitude about me not able to get up on the bar stool. He asked me if I wanted anything... More

my mom wanted to go here to try the BBQ, she liked it cause they don't put sauce on it. i wanted sauce and cole slaw, didn't get either. there wasn't too much on their menu that i liked. dry rub on BBQ is a good start but to finish it with sauce that makes your sandwich nice and moist,... More

Service wasn't above and beyond, but it was sufficient for our party of 11. I wasn't blown away with the pulled pork but it was good, same with the collard greens. The mashed potatoes & onion rings were awesome. Next time I go, I'm going to try something different on the menu.

Looking for great BBQ? Don't look any further than this roadhouse style family friendly restaurant. Service was friendly and we were sat immediately and a basket of mini corn muffins with honey butter placed in front of us. It was a busy night with a bus load of NASA folks next to us. Nonetheless we were well taken care of,... More

We go often because it is not far from home and food is generally good. Service is hit or miss. It's either really great or get up and walkout without paying terrible. I've actually had to chase down a manager to pay the bill. Food is cheaply priced and usually portions are decent. The collards remind me of my grandmother's.... More

I ordered the 1/2 rack Baby Back ribs, collard greens and black eye peas. The ribs were very tender and tasted great. They had a variety of sides. My husband ordered the 1/2 chicken and it was so tender. If you are in Hampton, you have to try this restaurant. I will return.
