My wife is in love again. She loves the baby back ribs. She say it's so meaty! And service was good too. I concur. E King

Coming in to town from out of state I checked website ratings and this place, plus favorable feedback from locals got my appetite up. See the McSwains commercially done webpage. Low and behold the place looks like a rundown deserted home converted to restaurant. Menu is hand writ behind the counter and difficult to navigate, but the staff are friendly... More

Decided to stop here and get dinner and boy am I glad I did. I had the wings and the pork ribs and they are to die for. I put the medium bbq sauce on both and it had a good flavor with a little kick to it. If you are near the airport, then you need to get Pit... More

The baby ribs were lean and extremely delicious. The Barbecue sauce was sweet it's still hot and spicy

This place is always excellent... Large lunch crowd.. but it's worth it. Try the pulled pork or the ribs. They also have daily specials.

The food here is great. Definitely better than the place looks from the outside. The smoked lemon pepper wings are awesome. My feedback would be to provide better service and remodel the place. The young lady that took our order was texting while trying to listen and get the order correct.

Love a place where you can actually get to meet the owner. They always offer the best service. I love supporting small businesses that are locally owned and operated.

I grew up in Texas, so I'm very selective about beef brisket, so this little restaurant near the Atlanta airport was a very pleasant surprise. I had a sliced brisket sandwich - the meat was outstanding: very lean, tender, moist without being damp, nice flavor without any sauce. They have a variety of sauces "on the side," and also have...

I'm from the NYC metro area so I don't "know" BBQ, but this was delicious. Well I know BAD BBQ, because I've sure had some around NYC. And this is definitely the GOOD kind. It's a lot of food for a great price, self seating, relaxed environment.

They get a F in customer service. I was not satisfied with one of the ribs. I asked for a replacement and the manager refused. I then asked for a refund and he refused. The manager asked for a takeout box and told me to take the food or he will throw it away. Here is the kicker. He kicked... More
