great bbq

There is a lot on the menu, and everything I have tried is delicious- pulled pork, burnt ends, bbq chicken, mac and cheese, cornbread, etc. I love their coleslaw. It's the best. This is a great take out place, or a spot for a quick sit-down meal.

Stopped here for lunch and had a fantastic meal. The service was really friendly and the no frills great food was awesome. We had a rib combo dish to share and there was enough meat to feed a family of four! A great place with terrific food!

Couldn't decide so I ordered Baby Back, Texas Beef and Kansas City rib combo. All were fantastic. Fried apples and cornbread are really delicious. Cole Slaw is vinegar based, not my favorite, but pretty good. Can't wait for tomorrow's leftovers for lunch. Very friendly, very casual atmosphere.

The setup is for fastfood, place needs more attention on neatness. But in terms of the food they cater, it's very good, the price is affordable, friendly customer service. The pulled pork is may favorite. We ordered the platter that has, pulled pork, bbq ribs & chicken.

Here's some good BBQ. The meats, no matter what you choose--excellent. Do yourself a favor and make your own side dishes. All the side dishes offered are average at best and often seem reheated over several days.

We used to get takeout and always found the food to be delicious. Once in a while it wouldn't be, however we'd keep going back. The last we ordered, the chile was not thick but runny, the ribs were like shoe leather, and the wings were pretty much raw. I've noticed there are always different people behind the counter, so...

Was in the mood for a little bbq outstanding find for sure. The briscut was perfect cooked just right not smothered in sauce and so tender. The mix sauce had the perfect amount of kick to it too. And both sides Cole slaw and cornbread were delicious. A tiny bit on the pricy side and a little slow but the... More

The best spare ribs ever with barbecue sauce specially made and cooked by Uncle Wille , with sweet potato fries n cole slaw sidings. The price, about $15..00 but 7pieces big spare ribs for two is more than enough.
