Great Pulled Pork!

We've been here before and it's not fancy but the food is very good. Portions are adequate. Pricing has increased a bit but so has everything else. Definitely would go back.

The food was good but nothing special. I've had better ribs most anyplace else the chicken strip were very good and the cat fish was catfish. The food came fast and was plentiful

Nice decor, good music, nice staff. Menu is very average (pulled pork, potato salad, coleslaw) for people who have had BBQ anywhere else in the world. Drive to Phx instead and go to Rudy's instead. I would not go back, I heard there was a great local BBQ somewhere else that I plan on finding on my next business trip

Service can be spotty until its time t get your check. We(wife and I) were in for lunch and the lunch menu has raised almost $3.00 each plus the quantity has shrunk. At least today the service was very good, then again we were in about 3:30pm s a very small crowd was there.

My fiancée and I had the dinner for two which included 6 ribs, half chicken, our choice if a third meat (we got the brisket), corn muffins, corn on the cob, potato wedges, coleslaw, and I forgot what else. We took our leftovers to go and that filled us up a second time. It's a happy environment, with that cool... More

The hostess/server and other employees were polite and courteous, the food was delicious; Beef brisket sandwich with fries and an extra side of green beans. Lunch for two+/-... More

Good service and atmosphere, but if the ribs I had were any indication of how they smoke stuff here, I will never be back. Pork was OK. Chicken was ok. But the ribs felt and tasted like they maybe spent an hour in the pit and a minute in the microwave. Anyone will tell you that ribs are all about... More

If you like BBQ meats that are Not smothered in sauce, this is your place. You put the sauce that you want. And they have over 6 choices. We had a variety of meats and each one was well cooked and delicious. Highly recommend.

Service was prompt, My wife thought the soup was very good, and I enjoyed the BBQ with a side of mac & cheese. It was a good stopping place for a nice lunch.
