Yum!!! A great barbecue restaurant that really hits the spot for a barbecue meal! The pulled pork is tasty, the cornbread is sweetly wonderful, and the sides are sizable and delicious! The sauces are great, so try them also! A nice value for the price...More

The food was very good and the portions were filling. The burnt tips were really delicious!!! Sauces were yummy and there was a good selection of them. Sides were all very good too. There is one sauce that is particularly hot....so tread lightly! :)

Made a quick visit here and was very pleased we did. The brisket was excellent and the couple next table had a great looking rack of ribs (next visit).
