Wow this place was absolutely amazing! Some of the best BBQ I've ever had. Everything is cooked and smoked over a wood fire, hard to find a place like that these days. Very juicy and tender and Tasty! The chicken breast is as soft as butta. Customer service is great, they knew we were from out of town and even... More

Oak-fired smoker right out back, pulled pork, ribs, chicken... the smoke will make you drool the moment you drive up! Nothing fancy here, but happy people serving the best you can find anywhere.

The ribs were as good as advertised... but the awful sides ruined it for me. I had the slaw and beans and they were both obviously pre made out of a container. Yuck. Also, how do you not have fresh brewed iced tea?

My husband has brought me food from Poppa's many times. Finally we had a day off during the week together and we went there for lunch. This is a small, simple place with some awesome BBQ! Really wish they were open later or on weekends.

This rather modest restaurant serves the best BBQ I have had. This is only a lunch spot open during the week, but it is worth braving the long lines to eat here. My favorite is the pulled pork with 3 ribs and 2 sides for $9.99. The chicken is tender and cooked perfectly. They also do catering and you can... More

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.
