Quaint, different, cute retro restaurant that is actually original!

Went for lunch. I had BBQ chicken basket. It was very different from other restaurants I have dined in as the entire Restaurant was more of a giant screen porch. The tables and chairs appear to be original as does the equipment. Service was good, food was great although my Chicken was a little... read more

After both my parents talked this place up highly, I had really high expectations for the food that weren't even close to met. I had the pork sandwich with potato salad and baked beans. Everything was really blah. Even the BBQ sauce tasted watery and blah. I was incredibly disappointed and once or twice I thought about adding a pinch... More

So this place is legendary. Since I was a child it has been a tradition of fantastic grub. Keep it simple. Pork. White bread. Great sauce. If it's Thursday or Friday or Saturday and it's not summertime - GO!!!!!

Most of the time it is great. I have had a couple of occasions where my ribs were dried out, but most of the time, they are very good. Very simple. and very old.

As a "foodie", I was amazed at the wonderful reviews. With apologies to Peebles, my experience was not positive. It may be a great landmark, but the food is the thing. My small order of ribs arrived already looking dry and tough. My attempts to wrest the meat off the bone gave me a mouthful of dry cords which no... More

Nearby at the baseball fields we needed a lunch we could take to go and this place was recommended by a local. OMG, this is what a neighborhood bbq place should be like in every town. One of the cooks gave us a "tour" and a tasty treat as he checked on the pork butts and ribs. These people take... More

We do not eat there, because the dining area is near the cooking area. No A/C. They are not open in the summer. We always call ahead and do a carry-out. We eat at home in the coolness. Perfect baked beans, cole slaw and ribs. Their bar-b-que sauce is our all time favorite. You can buy the sauce by the... More
