Price was right, but food was just okay. The cheese fries were pretty sad, but the BBQ was good. Sweet tea was great!

Ok, if real BBQ is the South's best contribution to the Culinary Arts, then the finest item which can be BBQ'd has got to be Beef Brisket.

My husband and I love the food...very good. We live in Statesboro but will go over and eat there quite often. Sometimes my husband will go over there, order and then we eat here at home!

Great BBQ. We had pulled pork, brisket and ribs. We visit here about once a month and they have the best potato salad. I tried the sweet puffs tonight and they were awesome!

Nice surprise find! Delicious! I had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese. Hubby had beef brisket with cheese and fried okra. Both sides needed a bit of salt & pepper, still tasty. Get Buck sauce on side if you try it.

We stopped in while traveling on I-16. We come through the area around once or twice a year and try to stop in if possible. This time i had the 3 meat combo (chicken, pork and brisket) andy wife had the Scooby Snack. We also took home 6 pieces of delicious cake to eat and give to family. Great eating!

They have all the standard BBQ offerings with table and counter service. The ribs were very good and I liked the baked beans but the potato salad was a bit bland with to much mayonnaise. The server was friendly. The kids didn't like the hamburgers but my son-in-law did like the brisket.

Thank David W
