Ok for run of the mill barbeque. Had the brisket which was good but not special. Tried the ribs not bad, the sauce is what makes it. Not Texas barbeque.

Food just okay. No substitutions. Not very clean. Seating is very uncomfortable. Very outdated. Won’t go back. Service was good. Had a very attentive waitress.

Some down home cooking BBQ style. Great big glasses of iced-tea and a menu to meet all your dining needs. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich.

I live in Georgia, so may opinion will be different. Good food, and great menu, It was hard to find pork BBQ on the menu, as they call is pork steak. Great sides and some lunch specials.

Although the "ranchy" feeling of the restaurant felt a bit too contrived, the food was really good. I was a bit concerned when I pulled into the parking lot and saw how full it was. But, I was seated immediately and ordered fairly quickly. I...More
