Great with side of expensive

Food is some of the best around the Madison area. But they are proud of the product. Compared to other BBQ joints in and around town, they are top of the price chain. No coupons, no loyalty program.

I really enjoyed my bbq salad and my friend said the bbq sandwich with beans and slaw was very good. Fast and nice service. The restaurant was clean and even the customers were friendly. I would recommend the bbq to anyone asking where to eat when they come to Huntsville and Madison.

Great little place to eat but get there early because when they run out of food that is it for the day.

food is great, but extremely crowded and inconsistent hours. like BBQ and the quality is about the best around, so it is not cheap, but worth the price. Place is very small, so difficult to get around in there.

Went here based on reviews. Fun little place, and I was excited to sit and eat. More of a Texas style barbecue, optional sauce. I spent some time in Austin hitting the barbecue around there, and was hoping for the same. Didn't hold up... very tender meats, but flavorless. Good barbecue should be perfect on its own. Needed salt and... More

I've only eaten here a few times, but the food is excellent each time. This place stays packed and has weird hours so it's kind of impossible to just 'get in and out' during lunch hour on a weekday. The food makes it worth it though. My company orders for the plant sometimes and they've never gotten an order wrong... More

Visited this place at lunch after a number of recommendations. Despite a big line waiting to be served we stuck around. Food was great! The brisket was moist and amazing. Islam had pulled pork shock was very good. Venue is on small side but appropriately decorated.

Wow, wow, wow. I had the three meat plate: Brisket, pulled pork, and sausage. Each of them were a perfect 10 out of 10. I used to be a ribs judge in Austin and was disappointed that the ribs were already sold out when I got there. But man, the other meats were so good that I'd almost forgotten what... More
