Been here several times as I live local. The service is fair and the meal is a hit or miss. The food is okay, but usually isn't very hot

Fun place. Good local music. Good barbecue, but they were out if multiple main menu items. Better than usual for local barbecue.

If you are looking for the home cooked meal setting. This is the place for you. They have a wonderful bar with usually 3 choices of meat and all the fixins you could want. They also have a separate salad bar and a desert bar. Also breakfast all day. It is also very clean and the customer service is excellent.

The aroma brought us in the door. We were not disappointed! Pulled pork sandwiches were fantastic. Large selection of sauces. The homemade banana pudding was excellent also. Very friendly and attentive staff. Will definitely be back.

Some of the best brisket ever. The "smoked mashed potatoes" were very unique and deliciousm. The setvice was fast and friendly. The cost of lunch for 2 was a bit pricey but in this case you certainly get what you paid for. Would go back for sure.

A great local restaurant in downtown Galax. Convenient to all the shops. Service was good/ could have been a little more attentive but choices of food and drink works for everyone.

We happened on this nice BBQ joint while antiquing. The staff were great and friendly. Neat decor and lots of character. The hush puppies were so good, we ordered more! The BBQ beans and coleslaw were also tasty. The pulled pork was average. It seemed to be heated up, it wasn't fresh. But it didn't stop us from eating it... More

My husband and I visited here because of the reviews of others. We both ordered pulled pork with hushpuppies and bbq slaw. We were pleasantly surprised, because we are picky about bbq. What made it extra good was the sauce the waiter recommended. Yum! The hushpuppies were excellent! (I ate all of mine!)the atmosphere is good, as is the service!... More

Decent BBq and good service doesn't really taste like smoked over a fire but not bad. No rice and hash
