Really good.

We have a son that works at the local BBQ place (not in Conway) and their BBQ is really really good so we're a little biased by that BUT i tried the sliced beef, chicken and ribs with corn, pintos and texas toast. The chicken was pretty typical, its hard to screw up chicken. The beef was tender... read more

After having a difficult time placing a to go order, he was very unprofessional and didn't seem to know how to do... More

We've only been once and picked up our order in drive through, but the food was exceptional. Best I've had yet. There was a problem with my credit card being overcharged but it was resolved the next day. 5 stars!

I have been dining with 3 generations of Smith family BBQers since the middle 90s. Part of the reason for this is not only the incredibly warm and friendly atmosphere cultivated by Cletus, son Don and Don's three sons who worked at the restaurant at various times, but the work of their "Pit Man", Mikey, who has worked for the...

The very best BBQ around. I'm a local and we eat there at least once a month and sometime more frequently. The service is always good and the BBQ is best to be found in the area. The spicy sauce is excellent, with a little bit of a bite. Ribs are excellent and pulled off the fire at 5:00 pm... More

After reading a few reviews my wife and I stopped in for a late lunch. My ribs and chicken combo was smoked to perfection and literally fell off the bone. The lid sauce was suite with a lite spicy bite. My wife had the smoked pork sandwich and she said it was as tender as soft butter. Rolls were good... More

The best lean and smoky meats with a flavorful sauce that has just the right amounts of sweet and tangy. I like all their sides, and the fried pies are delicious.

This was the second time we have eaten here. The food is delicious. We both had the ribs. I also got the potato salad and fries, he got baked beans and fries. I tried the traditional hickory sauce and the spicy sauce and both were very good. I couldn't decide which I liked better, the sweet hickory or the spicier... More

Chicken and beef were both excellent. The spicy and hot sauces are truth in advertising so make sure you want it before you order. Baked beans were better than the bbq beans.
