Had pork ribs, brisket, and pulled pork for supper. Ribs were fatty, pulled off the bone, not tasty. Brisket was excellent. Pulled pork was ok, with some pieces rock hard and dried out. Corn pudding was to die for. Baked beans had brisket chunks in it, but was overly sweet and not thick.

I've eaten at this location four times in the past 16 months while in the area for work. This most recent time will probably be my last. Each subsequent visit has seen the quality of the meal go down, and thus the value as well (it's not a cheap meal). The brisket was a little dry, and it got cold... More

Every time I get to this area for work I eat here. Everything is delicious! Have a hard time deciding. So when in town like this week I ate here 3 out of 4 days. Great variety of tasty meats and nice selection of sauces. Can't go wrong with the fresh cut fries, and my favorite side is the corn... More

We ordered the family meal with pork bbq and everything was great. Our daughter wanted mac n cheese and we thought it could of been a little better but one of the workers brought us a free Coleslaw after not finding any on the toppings bar. Also we had to wait a few extra minutes on fries so they threw... More

Excellent pulled pork and ribs. The sides are wonderful. Green beans are the best served anywhere. The corn pudding is the bomb. Mac and Cheese too runny for my taste. All the meats have a great smoked flavor, with a choice of 3 or more sauces

The ribs are tender and the Sausage were big and juicy. I just stopped there again to take some on the plane with us. The sauce is Ok.

Visited for lunch with three co-workers... Order at the counter. Wait for your order to be prepared. Get your beverage and pickle slices. Find a seat. Eat. Pretty simple. They run a lunch special with a smaller sandwich and two normal sides - beverage is extra. IMHO they should down-size the sides to match the sandwich. I got the pulled... More

We eat here on occasion and always enjoy the food. It is well prepared and you have a variety of tasty sauces to try. The service is pretty quick for a barbeque place.
