I eat here a couple times a month. They have awesome food. The best BBQ around. I've had almost everything on the menu now. All of it is amazing. My favorite is the pulled pork

My husband and myself decided to give this restaurant a try and we were pleasantly surprised. Our young waitress Ashley (I think) was very polite and explained the menu. Lunch specials were only $6.99 and excellent value for money. We eat out quite a lot so like to keep it within our budget, if possible. We both had the fried... More

Went here because of recommendations from locals, and so glad we did. The service was superior, the food was something we've been looking for in a BBQ joint, but didn't find until this place. It was true BBQ done to perfection. We had the sampler for two, and EVERYTHING was delicious, and the portions were enough so that we took... More

The food is really good and the staff is very friendly. The flavor of the ribs, brisket, and pulled pork is very good. I tryed hush puppies for the first time. They have corn pieces in them and I really dont like corn, but you cant really notice the pieces of corn when you eat it so I ate them... More

Great food and atmosphere. I had the brisket and pork sandwich with the steak fries and a side of baked beans. Many different sauces to choose from. Excellent service.

After hearing great raves about this place for the past two seasons, we decided we better try it before heading back north next week. We should have come here two years ago! A little difficult to find from the busy highway, but certainly worth the effort. The menu choices were most surprising and the food was excellently prepared and brought... More

Just go! This is a BBQ joint run by a real chef. I've eaten lunch here several times and I've never been disappointed. The pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches are delicious, lean and tender. The smokey sandwich is a combo of both brisket and pulled pork. Six different BBQ sauces, from Kansas City sweet to Memphis spicy to Carolina... More
