We arrived at 11:30 to at least 20 well dressed men in line. Well worth the wait. Food was yummy the ribs well cooked and meaty, the pork more than a bit spicy.

My husband wanted some BBQ while on vacation and looked on line. He found this place and boy were we pleased with it. The food was great and the service very friendly and helpful.The prices are very good also. We even went back for lunch the day we left to come back home. Would highly recommend.

had lunch there today...WOW... the pork sandwich was very good and moist. The ribs were fab.. the bark was the best I have had.

The BBQ was just ok.. Nothing special. I had the pulled pork sandwich, it was decent but bland. The sides were very bland as well. My boyfriend had the ribs and was not impressed as well. We came out of our way to try this place because of the reviews.. We will not be back.

The food was great. Sauce has some kick to it! Only one BBQ sauce to choose from, so that may detract some with a different palate. The food goes quick! They were out of chicken breast by 12PM (they open at 10:30!). Place was kind of small though. Perfect for takeout, but eating in may be hard given the crowd.

Of course we found this somewhat hidden place on Trip Advisor. Got there at open and bought my staff a lunch. Everything was very good. Loved the ribs the best. We also had pulled pork which was good as well.

The ribs and pulled pork were outstanding. Atmosphere very plain but you're going for the BBQ! Order at the counter & pickup at the counter.

Being a frequent customer of Sonny's, I thought a little hole in the wall establishment wouldn't be able to hold up. Not only was I thoroughly impressed, but I was blown away by how flavorful and tender the meat was.
