this is one of the funkiest places. A barbeque restaurant in the middle of nowhere in a low gully but with fabulous ribs. Not fancy, this is the place for barbeque. I head there whenever the desire for ribs calls me. Do not expect fancy service but count on great ribs. The sides are always on a wood board "menu".... More

I enjoyed the food, service, and atmosphere of this homestyle restaurant. We had the Baby Back Ribs and the Prime Rib as entrees. Both were excellent. You also get a choice of two sides with your dinner. We collectively had green beans, sauerkraut & tomatoes, dinner fries, sweet potato patties, broccoli/cauliflower/cheese & speckled butter beans. Everyone gets two corn fritters.... More

Jarrett catered our wedding reception which was outside in the country. We had appetizers and main meal, buffet style. From set up to take down, Jarrett was amazing. He was happy, friendly, worked hard and served the best food I have ever had at a wedding. It rained that night at it was hard to maneuver in the rain, but... More

I will say it again, PORK SHANKS. Try them and you will be hunting them down in every restaurant you go to afterwards. The sides are great, too, my favorite is the sweet potato cakes. The decor is dated and so is the building but the great food can blind the eyes and tantalize the taste buds.

This place has a good variety of Bar B Q meats and side dishes. Two of us had the Carolina Pork, one has the chicken and the other had the ribs. You can choose three different sizes for your meals, including jumbo! The helpings of the meat dishes and sides are all good sized. The food was very good and... More

Not a fan. After reading other reviews I was expecting amazing BBQ. Dropped by on a Tuesday in the off season and was the only person under 70. Pulled pork dry and bland. Fried clams (they were out of ribs- which is supposed to be a speciality) were overcooked and stringy. The cole slaw was decent. The corn fritters, that... More

Excellent Food and Service. You had better take cash or they have an ATM machine there. I thought the food was excellent and would highly recommend it to others.

One of the joys of being blissfully unemployed is the freedom to just pack our tushies into the family roadster and take a trip whenever the spirit moves us. Yesterday the spirit moved us to go back south to Ellenton, Florida to enjoy again some of what that burg has to offer. On our last trip, we drove down yonder... More
