Good food, too pricey

We enjoyed the BBQ sandwiches and cobbler. It was a treat for my birthday. Otherwise it would have been too expensive.

What a great little diamond in the rough. Amidst all the shopping around this tasty BBQ we had an excellent dinner. The friendly wait staff and visit by the manager made our visit pleasant and the BBQ ribs, tri-tip and brisket were savory with beautiful smoke. We had ice tea in mason jars and a warm towel after our delicious... More

The atmosfear is western style and the Smoker is right where you can watch it. Don't touch though. Ribs both Beef & Pork done well. Service was good nothing missed and had beef ribs very tasty. Ribs and two sided, try the peanut slaw just a little different or sweet potato fries.

Loved the friendly service. You can definitely feel their team approach to customer service. Fried green tomatoes to die for! Huge servings of tea and lemonade so you aren't searching for the wait staff all the time.

Went here for lunch- business meeting. Service was good- could have been a little better considering it wasn't that busy. The barbecue was very good. Had the barbecue chicken and it was definitely cooked right- meat came right off the bone and moist. Had fried okra for an appetizer and that was really good, too. Service staff is friendly and...

Food was great, service was great. If you have room to store food order larger positions or split them with someone else. The smaller portions are overall more expensive. 3 beef ribs was $24, 7 were $32. I ordered seven and took 4 home for 1 to 2 more meals. Cornbread and biscuits were very good and lots of side...

A group of colleagues meets here about once every two months. The service is always excellent and we always have a somewhat private area to eat and discuss business. I generally order a salad and I have tried several -- all excellent. Servings are generous and are served with biscuits.
