Ate here close to closing time on a Tuesday evening. Very unimpressed by quality and quantity vs. price of fare served to our family of four. I do agree that the beans were better than average, but the shining star well above the beef and...More

My husband and I ordered the rib feast for two, plenty of ribs and 4 sides. The ribs were tender and flavorful with a mild rub. The BBQ sauce was mild and sweet but not too sweet. Very good beans and Cole slaw as well....More

My husband and I stopped here on our vacation. It was the best BBQ we have had in a long time. So happy to know that the BBQ sauce can be ordered online and shipped to me in TX.

We love this place! Great brisket and ham; the bean pot is incredible. The lunch special is a favorite, and we typically have to take a go box home with us. Very friendly staff; clean and fun environment.

We stop here at least twice a month. The staff is friendly and always welcoming. The food is outstanding and if you get there early get the "bean pot". Smoked beans with brisket added and don't forget to ask for their BBQ sauce on top....More
