Very Good BBQ and Service

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... read more

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.

The food is consistently good. Last time we ordered an appetizer and it was way too much to consume, so this time I tried a half order of fried okra - I should have gotten a full order. It is hard to judge the portions, as a lot of the items are very large. Our group ordered a variety of... More

Lunches started at $8.99. I ordered from the lunch menu and got the Carolina baked potatoe with house salad because it was one of the few lunch choices that wasn't chicken (as popular as it is, chicken is always the last thing I order). The potatoe was huge, the BBQ pork filling was minimal. Salad was cool and crisp but... More

Food and atmosphere was fabulous. Brisket was to die for. The only negative was the spotty service. It seemed like forever before we were waited on, and then had to flag down the servers, and it wasn't that crowded. But, I've never been a server, so I don't want to bash them.

All of our food including the sides was very good. The decor is very homey and comfortable with large tables and booths...plenty of room for multiple dishes. The biscuits and apple butter was an excellent start to a satisfying meal. Service was good but just like most restaurants once we were done and declined dessert it took too long to... More

We thought this was really expensive. Had average tasting baby back ribs, 1 half rack and one whole rack (not falling off the bone) with 2 sides and iced tea. The bill was $65 for 2 people and we sure wished we had gone to a good steakhouse instead. The coleslaw is awful, tasted like chopped up cabbage with NO... More

We loved the background music (blues) it fit well and not too loud so you could talk. The pulled pork sandwich was excluant, tender and flavorable. The choices of three house BBQ sauces two were great (didn't try the "hot & spicey". The fries were plentiful. The strawberry lemonade was lovely. Their is patio seating with a misting system that...

We continually get requests to go to this location for birthday dinners, so some people really like the place. The service is slow, but the food is good and it is very plentiful. We generally pack out a number of doggie bags when we visit. They could increase the amount of honey butter they pass out with the biscuits, but... More
