I was hoping that this place would be good since it's a local bbq joint but it was horrible. The brisket was disgusting. It was dry and flavorless. The sausage reminded me of cut up hotdog that you would serve a kid. Don't waste your money!

I have had better BBQ but this place was pretty good, but the sauce is something one has to acquire a taste for...I asked for the hot sauce for my sandwich and it was not good at all....the sandwich was big and the meat tender but a good sauce would have really helped. Prices are so-so, but I more than... More

This is pretty good BBQ, but you may want to go up the road to the new Whole Hog location which in my opinion is better. No way can this place match up to them.

We get the family pack at least once or twice a month. Meat, buns, sauce and 2 sides. We get beans and slaw. Best slaw anywhere, sauce too. This pack lasts 2 meals for us. Great food and value. Family owned and run. Nice folks.
