The atmosphere is casual with TV's on the wall. Specials are posted on blackboards and they are worth checking out. Food is inexpensive and senior specials on Wednesday are 2 for 1. Saturday and Sunday mornings feature a free breakfast with the order of full price drinks. Service is not fast but it is friendly. There is a happy hour.

My wife & I have driven by this place numerous times but really never gave it a second thought. Sandwiched between a pizza joint and a flower shop along a strip of other businesses close to a busy intersection, it's easy to miss. And, it's a BBQ joint. Our experiences have been very mixed with BBQ but we decided to... More

Cheap eats. For a cup of coffee you get a free breakfast of eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast. Hard to complain. The other couple had biscuits and gravy and Corned beef hash with eggs. Average but not overpriced. It is supposed to have great BBQ later in the day.

We had shredded pork and beef sandwiches, sweet potato fries, potato salad and beans amongst our family. Everything was perfect...I can't complain about a single thing! Tender flavorful meats, and the sides were nice sized. They were serving the free breakfast (we were there Saturday at noon) but I wouldn't go for that knowing how good the other stuff is.... More

Let me start by saying, the outside looks like a dive bar... But we saw 3 cop cars parked in the parking lot (not there on a call) and knew if the cops were eating lunch here it must be good! The prices are so cheap! On the weekends, they have $2 mimosas! They also have a 2 egg breakfast... More

Pretty reasonable bbq. Not the best, but you'll have a great little meal. No fried okra which is a real bummer. Portion sizes are pretty great.

Friends recommended this little hole in the wall place. Opening the door we werre greeted by the owner and the wonderful BBQ aroma. Clean, with many tables, a bar and TVs playing a variety of sporting events, no volume so conversation was easy. Everyone of the staff were welcoming and accomodating and the food was delicious. We had rib tips,... More

We ordered the dinner for 3-4 people planning on leftovers to take home. Heck, yeah, did we have leftovers! Decent service, place was very clean (even the restrooms!) and the food was very good. Couple of sauces on the table were yummy. We had our leftovers but neglected to get any sauce so we had to add our own when... More

Drove up for dinner with my boss after searching "BBQ near phoenix" on my phone. The place looks like a total dump on the outside and we literally almost turned around before we got out of the car. Since, I had read some decent reviews we still went for it. And it paid off! The inside is much more presentable... More

The ambiance here is low key, with bare table tops, tv screens (tuned to sports) all around the room, corrugated metal wainscoting, etc. But the food was delicious. The Hammered Hog Sandwich is 1/3 lb of pulled pork on a toasted bun with blue cheese cole slaw on top. The pork was tender, moist, smoky, and flavorful. The cole slaw... More
