Servings were huge and everything was great for a reasonable price. Family had pork BBQ, half chicken, BBQ beans, cole slaw, chili, biscuits, swirl fries, french fries, and beer. We could hardly walk after finishing such huge meals.

This place serves amazing smoked bbq. The ribeye sandwich with the twice baked loaded potato is one of my favorites! They also serve up fresh shrimp, direct from the Gulf! The only drawback of this place is they do allow smoking.

We will definitely make it a point to stop here again when we are in southern Missouri. The food was excellent, especially the home made pies!

OK - so we've been there a couple of times - 3 to be exact. Each time we're met with POOR service and mediocre food. I'll give the BBQ pork a 4 out of 5 but when you couple that with the poor service, I'll...More
