Best local and regional BBQ

If you don't try the cornbread sandwiches, you've wasted your time. These guys do it right and it is worth every penny.

After having received multiple recommendations to try this place we finally gave it a go. We were not disappointed. We ordered the both the pork sandwich and the ribs. The ribs were good (not quite blackened enough for me but very tender and large) and the pork sandwich was phenomenal - perfect combination of tender pork with blackened outer crust... More

I've eaten barbecue all over the country and this little place is my current favorite. The meat has a wonderful smokey flavor and the sauce is delicious. If you want to eat on site instead of getting take out, there's a screened porch with picnic tables and fan. Nothing fancy here, just delicious food and friendly people.

These great folks catered my daughter's wedding. Ribs and pulled pork are terrific. They also make horseradish potato salad which I'd never had before. And it was amazing! Can't go wrong with this place for some pretty good BBQ.

We had the pulled pork sandwich. Nothing fancy, just good BBQ. Fast, polite service. Not a restaurant, just a couple picnic tables. Probably helps keep prices reasonable and I ain't got no problem with that. We will definitely return!!

We had very low expectations when passing through Foley that we would be able to find anything other than chain restaurants, but we were pleasantly surprised when we came across this place. It looks like kind of a dump but don't let the appearances fool you. The food is quite tasty and the lemonade was the best lemonade that I... More

Stopped in to try BBQ and it was delicious. We had BBQ pork sandwiches. No disappointment there! Very casual - no dining room - just a screened in area to eat outside. Very clean and reasonably priced. A must for quick stop service!

They have excellent ribs, pull pork and brisket. I like ordering the spicy crackling cornbread sandwich which is 2 corn bread pancakes with jalapeno peppers, a scoop of pulled pork and a scoop of slaw. The horseradish potato salad is world class if you like spicy food. The staff is very friendly and the prices are about what you would... More
