Tucked between a large truck stop and a truck repair facility, the view is not grand from outside - but what BBQ shack needs or wants a great setting? The interior is clean, neat, and slightly more decorated than a bare bones shack. See photo. Had the pulled pork sandwich, which is served without sauce - three sauces provided at... More

We love bbq and this being somewhat close to the house we had to check it out. The service was fine and we had a really nice day to sit outside and enjoy the food. The ribs were pretty fatty. The pulled pork was good. This is not a cheap BBQ joint so keep that in mind when going.

Cute little place, right next to a truck stop. Food is fair, but have to get there early, because they don't cook very much, and when it's out, then it's out. Order at the counter, then grab a picnic table, eat in your car, or take it home. Just fair.

After a day at the speedway everyone recommended eating here for lunch. So we figured give it a shot. The BBQ is alright, not much flavor and the price is a little high, the carrot cake is what bumped this 3 star to a 4.

This place is right next to a truck stop off of I71. We originally stopped to go to McDonald's but then found this place and visited there instead. It's like a trailer with an added on front. You were greeted quickly and served fast. The food was great including all the sides. Worth the visit.

We stopped for lunch, and decided to try this instead of eating at the chain restaurants. The best thing we had was the Mac & cheese and it reminded you of elementary school. The sausage was ok, the brisket was awful ( no flavor ).

$6.00 for a sandwich and 8.00 for a half chicken. You can't get out of McBag for $6.00 for garbage food. We had takeout brought to us so by the time I actually got a break to get to my chicken it was cold, but still good. Nice smoke flavor, moist and the seasoning was mild and savory. We had... More

We were not met with the rudeness an earlier reviewer experienced. Exited the interstate expecting a nearby fast food joint and were pleasantly surprised to see this place. Pulled pork sandwich and "bones" (ribs) were very good. Ribs were very meaty and tender, but lack of smokiness precluded higher rating. Three different sauces available, we tried all three but preferred... More

The girls working were very courteous and polite to everyone in there. Our food was outstanding. I do not even like barbecue but my husband wanted to stop here. I even enjoyed the barbecue.
