Excellent flavor and the catfish is amazing! I always seem to order the prime rib, it's seasoned perfectly and as tender as can be!!! I got the pulled pork one time and it to was so tender! My friends ordered the Burnt Ends and said they were the best they had ever had!

Our party had a variety of meals. The pulled pork sandwich, prime rib, burger and chicken fried steak were all good. The cat fish platter was average which the fish had alot of mud veins in it and the beef brisket was a little dry. The fried dill pickles were good. The service was good. The building could use a...

Hi Sharon, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your birthday dinner! I will relay your message about the Catfish and Brisket to our Kitchen Manager, because that is not normal for those items. Our Brisket normally melts in your mouth! Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns- we will definitely address those issues. Take care... More

Wonderful family restaurant with many classic BBQ dishes. I worked down the street from Dillon's and had many lunches and dinners there. The service is always very good and the quality of the food is excellent.

We heard about this place, though it was a "department store" of same name. After a long day of bike riding, we decided to try this olace out. Great service and very short wait. Good news stopped there. Interior is dimly lit, probably for ambience and to keep the temperature regulated. VERY NOISY!, indicative of too many people waiting for... More

Hi Hiroshi, I am sorry to hear that your meal wasn't enjoyed due to the spicy-ness of our BBQ sauces, the two sauces you mentioned are our spicy ones.

Some of the best BBQ in the area, but not comparable to Texas. If you're in Portland Or. Busters BBQ is as good or better than Texas BBQ....and the owner is from Houston.

I have been to all but one location here in Arizona, my favorite location is in Glendale, AZ at the Zoo. They have the most beautiful tank in the restaurant. I always order the fish and onion rings. And you guys make the best iced tea too. I can't say I have tried anything else because I always get the... More

This is a good place for families and friends with varied tastes in food. A wide variety of menu items. The food is consistent. The wait staff are friendly, but often difficult to find server when something more is needed, such a refill on drinks.

Probably one of the best BBQ meals we have ever had. Smoked turkey and pulled pork were amazing. Many options in terms of BBQ sauces and sides. Fast and friendly service. The only down side was the sticky table ... Great lunch ahead of a baseball game!
