This restaurant is closed. This restaurant is closed and has been for probably 6 months or more. It closed because of a fire and did not reopen. There is a Steak and Shake in the location now.

This was a big disappointment for us. We stopped by here after seeing Jim and Nick's so packed. We figured we'd give it a try, at least we knew we'd get our food fast. The staff was more than polite but the food was not good. The food took quite a bit longer than I expected but tasted thrown together... More

Wow, where to begin. Things are bad when the BBQ place across the street (Jim n Nicks) is packed and this one is empty. The dining area was nearly as quiet as the kitchen. I couldn't tell if food was actually being made or just reheated. No confidence that the food was fresh. In spite of an empty dining room,... More

So, it's a BBQ restaurant in a fast food building. Unfortunately, it still feels like a fast food restaurant even though the menu and prices suggests otherwise. The staff was friendly enough and the food was fine (not outstanding, mind you!), but we won't go back. We just didn't like the atmosphere and Jim -n- Nicks is right across the... More

BBQ is extremely good, atmosphere is a true BBQ joint and sides are phenominal. Kinda tough to get too-in a parking lot that is not easily accessible from the southbound side of the road. Figure out how to get in and go-it's worth it

Ribs are tender off the bone and a little greasy. (Not my preference, but others like them like that.) Slaw was very good. Tasted fresh. Fried green tomatoes were not done. (Heavily battered.) Hamburger steak with grilled onions was very good. Fried okra was good, but heavily battered. Fries were good. The waitress was very nice and so was the... More

I used to really like this restaurant. However my husband and I went last week for lunch and noticed that the menu was completely different. We were told there are new owners. What a disappointment. Food was bland. The menu was limited. I asked for grilled wings. They brought me fried wings. The manager explained that they do not Grill... More

My husband and I love Brother Zeke's! The food is good and the value is about average compared to other BBQ restaurants in town. I love the open faced sandwich with chopped pork. I am particular about my BBQ and this is one of my favorites. We have visited several times and the service has always been great. On one... More
