The BBQ here is just not good. Service is fine, price is reasonable, but it's basically the same quality as BBQ from a grocery store deli. There are easily 3 to 4 places in town with better BBQ.

Recommended by a local as a great place to get BBQ. Not fancy, but good eats! Our server was friendly and the BBQ pork was delicious.

We stopped here when passing though on Hwy 45. Very convenient location if traveling this way. Staff was friendly. Everything was delicious. Prefer the onion rings over the homestyle fries. Only wish they had fried okra. The BBQ sauce was very good.

The barbecue was very delicious. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed it tremendously. Love their baked beans tremendously and the Tupelo sauce for the barbecue was great. We also had some yummy pecan pie.

Good taste.It is a restaurant that used condiments well, it's so unusually in American restaurant, I sorry for saying that. アメリカ料理の中珍しく調味料を上手く使っているお店です、お肉の味がうまいですね。 肉的味道很好,是我知道的为数不多的会用调料的店,多数美国料理,肉里除了加pepper 真吃不出还有其他味道。

Ribs were tough and fatty. Baked beans and sweet potato fries were ok. Staff seemed nice. Since we went for the BBQ we were disappointed. I would not return.

We went here after the car show. It had been recommended to us. We got a pulled pork and pulled chicken dinner to go. Both had beans and potato salad. They were out of slaw. Both sort of dry but had O.K. flavor. The beans...More
