Restaurant set on the side of main road. Road traffic not audible . Premises very clean , plenty of seating area both inside and outside. Service professional , friendly yet casual. Menu huge selection for every taste. My wife and I are fussy eaters and we both found plenty to choose from. I tried the unusual pit master dip sandwich... More

I am picky eater and I have to say this was the best BBQ I have had in years. While looking at the menu, I struggled to decide...I was happy to see this; "If you are having trouble making up your mind or just want a little variety, this one is for you. 1/4 chicken, pork, brisket, 2 ribs, 2...

The sign appears to still be up in the Publix plaza in Deland where I guess they used to be. We finally found the actual location and stopped in. I had beef brisket, fries, slaw and garlic bread. The brisket was good but came to the table luke warm along with everything else. I found everything to be bland. My... More

drove by a few times and it always looked crowded so we tried it our second night. Daughter ordered steak it was cooked perfectly med/rare. French dip was great fries under cooked and cold and the waitresses were busy had to ask for refills of tea. We sat outside so maybe they were short staffed. I would try them again...

Forgo the salad bar, and try these great treats, Brisket tips which are burnt, and crunchy slathered with the house barbecue sauce which gives them a tangy rich taste. YUMMY!

My wife had te pulled pork sandwich, she usually loves pulled pork. Today she wasn't impressed. She said it was ok, but not enough sauce. I had the BBQ chicken with cole slaw and beans. The chicken was OK at best. It was very dry and had BBQ rub not sauce. It just what I expected. The staff was friendly... More

So sorry we disappointed you. All of our BBQ is cooked dry rub with sauce on the side.We failed to let you know we only add sauce in the kitchen on request. Thank you for the opportunity and we would love for you to give us another chance to hopefully" understand the hype".Have a wonderful Mothers Day. More

I had heard about this place and wanted to try their BBQ. They had just put out a BBQ buffet on Saturday night when we arrived : 4/4/2015 at 7:18pm. We decided to go with that. The pulled pork and chicken was good. Cole slaw was good. That was pretty much it. Not really worth it. We ordered the fritters... More

Delicious BBQ, really friendly waitress and very charming owner. Very unique and woodsy decor which you would not guess from the outside. We ordered sliced pork and it was extremely good. The owner came by to check how we liked it and he seems to really love what he is doing. He has a great sense of humor and advised... More
