Love BBQ but not this one. Pulled pork platter w/baked beans and coldslaw. Beef brisket platter w/broccoli salad and potato salad. Meat on both dry, overcooked and tasteless. Got more sauce to add some flavor. Sides: broccoli salad excellent, potato salad good, coldslaw good, baked beans-have had more flavorful canned beans. Wait staff pleasant, order placed and served quickly, large... More

My husband and I have only eaten here once and then when my son came to town I took him there because he loves BBQ and they have the best. My husband and I get take out at least once a month.

Third time we've visited on return from beach holiday. Snappy and friendly service. Favorite food sides - baked beans and broccoli salad. Pig platter comes with two. Cornbread served hot out of the oven. Entire menu printed on the placemat. This makes for easy decision making. Beverages served in Bell jars. Pigs abound. No room for dessert. On previous visit...

Ok usually, a little thin on the bone. The ribs left me wanting more. The onion ring loaf is just what your cardiologist warned you against. The service was good. It was quick and that is the major benefit of this restaurant. Many eat here. Parking is hard to find on most weekends although they have a huge parking lot.... More

The service is quick, the food is inconsistent. Ribs are usually good, sometimes dry over powered by sauce. Use to be decent servings but lately the chicken has been more like pigeon size. Last few times I visited I had to send food back because it was cold when it should have been hot, or the bread was not cooked... More

Well first off, I always check the bathrooms first before I eat anywhere. They were extremely filthy and had a sewage odor to it. Not normal at all. Since we were tired and hungry from traveling we decided to stay, we have been here before. I had an odd uncomfortable feeling about even being here from the atmosphere. When our... More

Dropped by on our way to firefly. Let's see we were greeted by the hostess, which in less than two minutes was arguing with her co-workers about schedule and how she was getting screwed. At least someone realized they maybe should seat us but it gets better. As my wife heads to the restroom, she over hears where is .....?... More
