Great BBQ at a low cost. Great value for money. We loved all the meat which was great value, and we loved the sauces which you can also buy to take away! 5 star!

We really loved this bbq place! We had the Phil's ribs (amazing), shredded chicken sandwich, hot links sandwich and grilled cheese because of my vegetarian sister. Good but a small place and their garlic fries were really good and also the chips. Only thing bad is the price. The sandwiches were $8 or something like that which is ok but... More

As expected, the kids didn't eat much of their ribs. We loved ours. The potato salad was just so so. It was very crowded and the service was lacking. They were out of silverware (knives) and the waitress practically threw a handful of plastic knives at me. Corn muffins were pretty good.

Stopped here for a lunch break on our road trip. I love pulled pork and garlic fries, after doing some research read that this place has a good reputation for my favourites. It didn't disappoint! I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with a side of BBQ beans and garlic fries - fabulous! It was very busy, we were lucky to... More

We really enjoyed our tri tip sandwiches. Their sauces are extremely good. I really recommend the garlic fries. Be sure to have a few friends around to help finish them off. The ambience is kind of an eclectic southern mess. The food is good, so that is not a big deal.

Without having read the reviews on tripadvisor, we wouldn't have entered that place, most likely. But don't let yourself be misled, the food is delicious, the stuff very friendly and quick, you will not be disappointed! We had the ribs, half chicken and some burgers. The ribs just melted in our mouth, the chicken was delicious and very tasty and... More

The place is real clean, and the service was wonderful! Why do you have to have a minimum of 100 words when you say all you want to in a lot less? This optional should be left up to the customer!! We had the pulled pork sandwiches.
