Stopped in here for a quick lunch and enjoyed some amazing BBQ pulled chicken! The service was great, as was the food. Great place for some Southern BBQ while in Guelph!

Prices went up but darn it's good! We only get it once in a while for a treat and most of the time is delicious! Once in a while you may get some dried out meat but we just move that aside, portions used to be a bit bigger but still decent.

Really great barbecue. Pulled pork and chicken were excellent. Their cooked down hot sauce mixed with the regular sauce was outstanding! Friendly and very helpful staff. Cornbread was pretty good and the macaroni and cheese was great. The only thing I found a little disappointing was the sweet potato caserole as it was very dry and was mostly walnuts. We... More

I was surprised at how good it tasted as I consider myself a bit of a BBQ connoisseur. Meat was cooked perfectly, the sandwich was very tasty and quite filling,the macaroni... More

Yup, I managed to finish it and waddled out to the car!! This... More

We visited the Guelph location last night for the first time. We used to be regulars at the Waterloo location which closed down two years ago and we weren't sure if any of the locations were still open, but the Guelph one is! The brisket is by far delicious as are the other meat options. The baked beans are very... More

Got the pulled pork sandwich and onion rings for takeout with colleagues. Great decision, not too saucy, not too overwhelming, very tasty. Order ahead and pick it up
