Those were honestly some of the best ribs I've ever had. Everything else was fantastic too- the chicken, the brisket, fries, beans, coleslaw- all just absolutely fantastic.

Had a late lunch here and was very good. Server was friendly and attentive. We tried both the brisket and the chicken and they were both tasty. Prices are very reasonable. Certainly worth a stop.

If you're a meat-a-terian (yes, I made that up) ... then this is the place for you. Awesome barbecued meats galore. The smell and decor will make you salivate and want to dive in. Loved the place. Will return for sure.

Large variety of choices, but maybe focusing on fewer options would provide better quality. And for >$20 for brunch, I appreciate quality! Mimosas and Blood Mary's for $3 a perk. The live music was a big plus!

My cousin and I came here for brunch at 1:30. They shut the brunch down at 2pm and at 1:30 everything was old or out. So, we didn't have the buffet. We ordered off the menu. My cousin had the fried chicken platter for $13...More
