We are regulars here ❤️

My bf & I are regulars here. We love everything on the menu and I believe we have eaten everything on the menu at least once . Portion size is hit or miss. Sometimes your plate is loaded up and sometimes it's not. The bark on the brisket is pure heaven !!! The shredded pork has that smokey... read more

Great choices in their menu. Beef, Fish, Chicken, Pork, etc. Good prices, and very good service. Small place, seating less than 50, but clean and well kept. Tried about 1/4 of their menu. It was ALL good. Don't expect a fine dining experience. It is also a "carry-out" place with a LOT of business. NOT a place to take your... More

Had 3 meat combo plate, chose ribs, brisket & chicken. Tender meat, pretty good sauce. Comes with 2 sides and a dinner roll with butter. I chose mac n cheese - very good, thick & "cheesy" -plus cold slaw, very good too, with just enough sweetness for my liking.

Went here for lunch w/ some co-workers. The choice came down to Famous Dave's up by the mall or trying this new place. To say the least I was unimpressed. I will say that I thought the meat was decent. I had the rib tips and although not as meaty as many rib tips I've had before, they were fairly... More

Bought out recently. Food still great. Ribs, brisket, hamburgers, pulled meat consistently good. Poker on Thursday and Saturdays. Heard the football season breakfast is great.

I had the misfortune of taking my family here for dinner. I was in the mood for some bbq and ribs and this place is in our neighborhood. You don't ever want to eat at this place. It will be closed in less than 6 months anyway. The restaurant is broken out into a dining side and a bar side... More

You get what you pay for here, which is very little. Low prices seems to equal poor service and very average food. If you like your BBQ over cooked and really over sauced then this might be for you. My rib tips and chicken came so covered in sauce you could not tell them apart. Also the chicken was so... More

We had a party of five for dinner. The restaurant was not very busy. The waiter took our order and the food was delivered after a wait. The food was really good - with high marks given to the bar b que and the salad with blue cheese. The waiter seemed very busy doing everything except checking on his customers.... More
