Down-home cooking by the friendliest people!

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... read more

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

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

The potato salad was too salty and for me that is saying something. The coleslaw was fantastic. The ribs were hard on the outside, fatty in second layer, third layer meat was stringy, but the flavour was good. My husband loves ribs, these were side ribs and he found them the same as I did. Many people were there before... More

Family-owned, road-side establishment with basic tables and chairs. Nothing fancy but the BBQ is great. Probably do more take-out than eat-in business. Not open 7 days a week and closed during the summer during which time the locals cannot wait for the Fall reopening. The place is packed when it is open, so call ahead and order take-out, then head... More
