Prices have jumped, portions are half. I realize the big Mac is a lot of food but at least give me what I pay for

Great BBQ for anyone on a budget. We usually do carry out, always good food and service, the stuffed baked potato is a fav!

Great lunch specials (Sausage) and the boiled peanuts good. The restaurant is across the street from the Drury Inn Arnold, Mo.

Service is always excellent, never a long wait. Good variety of sauces. I could make a meal just off the garlic bread and Carolina hot BBQ sauce!

We regularly visit this location. The staff is always friendly and the food is always good. The wait time for the food to come out isn't too bad either. Love the donut holes with powdered sugar. They are a must when we visit.

My son & grandson were starved after hard days at work & school but my daughter-in-law & I were looking for something light after a late lunch. Ribs and hearty sandwiches filled the bill for the family and I enjoyed a bowl of Brunswick stew almost as good as Mom used to make!

We Had the St. Louis style spare ribs and they were quite good. Nice smoke ring and good flavor. The portions were large. They have several sauces so you should find one you like. Service was mediocre but not overly bad just inattentive.

Our favorite bbq of all time. Besides service, great food at a very reasonable price. You can also purchase their lunch portions at any time. This is huge for seniors like me who can't eat a huge dinner.

We always get the sampler with beef, Pork, and ribs so we don't miss out on anything. If you like corn on the cob try this fried version. You will love it! This is a very laid back atmosphere where anyone is comfortable whether they are wearing a tuxedo or shorts.
