I will keep this simple, and brief...they make all of their sauces in house, they cook their briskets "low and slow" for authentic flavor, and the wings....well, let's just say hubby and I never order less than 50, and savor them for days later.

This used to be one of my favorite lunch stops. Recent change of ownership has changed everything. The folks are friendly but the food just isn't up to what it used to be. I'll not be back.

I consider myself a very hard sale, especially when it comes to good food. I like for my food to be served hot, have a great taste, get generous portions, cleanliness, and most of all settle good.

The first time I visited, I was greeted by one of the owners (a husband-wife team) who offered me a chicken wing to sample. They are also... More

We had a groupon for Gator Q and tried it out the other night. We were greeted by the owner, who was also our server. She was very informative about the smoking process and the menu selections.
