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. I love to smoke but this place has given me inspiration to aspire and reach to achieve. I went out back to look at the smoker and the owner came out and answered any questions I... More

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.

I had been hearing about this place for months from a coworker, so my expectations were high. When we got there, the parking lot was small, but full and the line was through the door on a rainy day. The seating area is extremely limited, and they could use to correct that. The decor is something that is less than... More

Poppa's BBQ is fabulous Memphis Style BBQ. Portions are good, taste and quality is superb .Pricing isn't bad either. You have to work around limited hours, Mon. through Fri. only 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM, but worth timing your lunch break. They also do catering for private events. I will be trying this out for my next event.
