I love a good bbq place. The food was good but not great. Portion size was small and prices were a little high. Not a bad place for lunch. It was clean and service was good.

We go here often! Love all the BBQ selections but the horseshoe is amazing!!! I'm not a horseshoe fan but tried this once and I'm hooked! It's my "go to" favorite! The pulled pork nachos are a close second. So good and so much food....More

Excellent barbeque food. My favorite is the smoked turkey. They advertise as real Texas barbeque. If you've ever been to a Dickies Bbq in Texas or anywhere south, the menu is very similar.

My husband had the pulled pork, and I had the polish sausage. Each dinner comes with 2 sides. The meat is cooked to perfection. We will return for sure.

My boyfriend and I are regular customers here and love their food!! He usually gets the Que-shoe and I like the smoked turkey! There's usually minimal wait in line and the food is customizable. Only drawback is the cornbread isn't warm which is our preference....More

We always enjoy trying new places and try to go to local food places. They have a choice of sauces. We had the pulled pork and the brisket. We would recommend both! We will definitely be visiting them again!
