This place is in the middle of nowhere. My wife and I stopped here with a friend for dinner. We split a wedge salad, a full rib platter, and a pork platter. All the food here was good but not exceptional. They have a good variety of sauces. They were not busy the night we were there. We will most... More

You'll never get better pulled pork. I cater with them all the time and if they were in a better location, they would be full all the time. Great smoked flavor.

I had lunch here on a Saturday with a group of 6 others. The place was empty, which was perfectly fine with us. At first glance, I thought the menu was expensive. Upon the food arriving, I realized the portions were much larger than I had expected. I had the burnt ends sandwich with a sidw of homemade chips. Both... More

We were a party of eight and all first timers. We ordered Ribs, T's Burrito, Pulled Pork, Burnt Ends Sandwiches, Chicken Corn soup, Mac and Cheese, Salad with low fat Champagne vinaigrette and corn muffins. Not a single complaint from anyone. The food was very good and the portions were larger than expected. Very laid back and casual. Order at... More

Love the pulled pork plater. The BBQ is good love the sauce. The corn pudding is real good. Not a cheap place to eat though. Any time I win a small win fall I go there. 😀

I love this place. We order take outgrow here all of the time. We order the BBQ-pulled chicken (Kickin Chicken), BBQ pulled pork and the ribs. The ribs are St. Louis style. I prefer baby backs, but their cooking process makes these ribs smokey, flavorful, and very tender. Their fries are thick steak fries that are served on the soft... More

We've been eating here since they opened and have never had a bad experience. I'm partial to their Kickin Chicken. It is so moist and with the white BBQ sauce, mouth-watering! Their mac and cheese is the best I've ever had! My husband and I have learned to get an extra order of the homemade chips for the ride home!... More

We love BBQ. We had high hopes but were a little underwhelmed. The food was not great and not terrible. Most of the food was average. My husband had brisket, chili and beans. He liked the brisket with the regular sauce, but he said it was much better with the spicy sauce. He did not like the beans. He said... More
