We had a BBQ sample platter for lunch and had enough left over for another meal back home. Ribs, pulled pork and brisket were all good ... really liked the French fries. Both the potato salad and slaw traveled home well and were also very good. I am not a big fan of eating with plastic silverware... read more

This little place is in Cottonwood has been voted the best place to eat ribs for forever. Many awards have been given out. We ate here recently and it was still good, service seemed a little slower then before.

Very good barbeque and sandwiches. French fries are also fresh and good. Both times the person on the counter was very nice and friendly. The sandwiches are big enough to split. It is also very clean.

We ordered the sampler platter. Almost enough food for four people and under $25. BBQ was primo. Ribs, brisket, pulled pork, fries and two more sides. Don't miss this place!

Was very disappointed that the food quality has suffered since the new owners took over. Dry and bland. It was a favorite for years and now it's not even an option anymore. The atmosphere has changed from lively and welcoming to zero personality.

We shared the sampler meal for 2 between two adults and a child. There was more than enough meat. The pork, brisket and ribs were all equally great. Great smoke flavor, and fast service. Good value for the money- 2 sides plus french fries and toast.

There is a reason that they keep winning the trophy for best BBQ. We like the Monday special, for the Ribs and sides. Only problem is its so good you will keep going back for more.

Really - I slow-smoked smoked my own Q for years and as a full-time RVer try rib joints all across the US. Have eaten there a few times. The BBQ has been pretty darn good. Once we got a tough-as-shoe leather rack of BabyBacks. The owner tried it, apologized and immediately replaced it. Smart - that's what makes customer's return.
