This little gem is hidden, it sits off the road less taken for sure. My visit took place on a Friday during prime lunch time, noon. On the door it says they close every week day at 2:30 and they aren't open on the weekends....More

Do not go after 1:45 because they run out of food to choice from. Mac and cheese was spicy, pulled pork taste sour, ribs were okay, mash potatoes and beans were good. I would not return again because there are better rib places to go...More

I've been to this place many times as I really like their chicken crispy salad. Add is our in a wrap are both great options. The meatloaf is also very good as are some of the sandwiches. Service is always good and fast.

The pulled pork and brisket are both amazing. Try the potato salad and don't miss out on the cornbread. This place gets busy and parking is limited, but worth the wait and extra effort.

I didn't know this place existed until co-workers brought me there. Menu is pretty varied so you don't have to eat BBQ, you can even get meatloaf. The selection should satisfy most everyone. The food is really good. My only complaint was that the place...More

Let's forget about the food...for a second, the staff including the owner, Andy, were welcoming and friendly and just made my meal extraordinary. Now let's talk about the food! Wow, the Dynamite brisket sandwich was remarkable. A myriad of SW flavors and with a bbq...More
