Enjoyed this small local BBQ restaurant near downtown Riverside. Adequate seating both indoors & out made it relaxing and not chaotic. Service was great - fun talking with the owner. Food was tasty - we took advantage of the Friday fish specials. Good catfish & shrimp. Mac & Cheese was absolutely delicious! Portion sizes are generous.

There are a wide variety of BBQ and southern cooking selections. It is a very low key, casual spot. Service was good. Food portions are large. Everything tasted very flavorful. Some indoor and outdoor tables. For finger licking good BBQ, give it a try.

Located within a block of the Riverside Convention Center, this very modest, walk up to the counter, place your order and get your meal on paper plates, had really good BBQ at very reasonable prices. I had their midweek lunch special which I found to be a good value. I don't believe that they're open for dinner, but it would... More

Located across the street from my hotel, I thought I would try this non-descript restaurant. I am glad I did! While it is small and you order at the counter, the food is very good. The Bar-B-Q is "wet" and there is a good selection of entrees. It is well worth trying.

Always take the family for 3 way and it is fantastic. Wash your hands before you start because you will lick your fingers while you are eating.

Really good, just like home cooking, tons of side dishes to choose from, try it, you'll like it. Nothing fancy, just good food.

We went on a Sunday afternoon. Service was personal, but a tad slow. The food, however was to die for. Great servings of meat on the sandwiches, pulled pork, brisket and catfish. The sides were all tasty, but the the servings were somewhat skimpy. Three in the party ordered bottled beer, and had to change their choices a few times... More

Family owned they take pride in their meals. Quick and easy to get a to-go box of ribs, complete with choice of sides.

We waited 45 minutes for takeout. Worth the wait I guess so. The vegetables were really good. Meat was tender. The sauce had a little bite to it. Added to the smokiness of the meat. Corn bread was ok but should serve it with butter. The red beans and rice lacked flavor. Would give it another try. Maybe it was... More

Was in town on business, and this was the closest place to eat to where I was staying. Had the brisket plate, with potato salad and seasonal veggies. Potato salad was good, although I first thought they were mashed potatoes. Seasonal veggies had a great flavour. The brisket was a bit fatty, but otherwise it was moist and tasty. Coming... More
