Decent, cheap eats.

We stopped by for a quick lunch. Good value for the money. A generous lunch for $10 or less. The service was good and fast, typical diner style. Most of the customers were locals. FYI The decor probably hasn't changed much in 15 years.

Listen up my friends! I have been to restaurants from Pennsylvania to Florida and am very disappointed in the food at this joint. Way overrated! Save yourself the hassle and go down the block to outback and you'll have a better experience with a good rack of ribs, baked potatoe and the works. The food tasted old, and forget fall... More

After 3 days at Universal, finding this restaurant in Kissimmee was a great change of pace. I love finding local, long established restaurants that have tons of character. Not only was the decor was fun (love seeing friends & family photos), our waitress was great and the FOOD was wonderful. We were served a generous BBQ plate for 2 (really... More

This was our first time here. And I'm so glad I said to the woman this is our first time here what would you say we need to know. She immediately suggested the platter for two even though there was three of us. This platter came with many different types of BBQ the only one that we really didn't care... More

You wouldn't think that this tiny bbq place would serve breakfast, but they do! And to our surprise is was actually pretty great! Service was good but she wasn't very friendly. Other than that, food came out fast and it was very reasonably priced. The home fries were super yummy! And I had biscuits and gravy that were pretty good.... More

We stumbled upon this place while on vacation. It was a great place to eat. Our waitress made us feel like we were eating at home. The feel of the place was cozy and friendly. Being from Canada, I've never had southern Bbq before. Our server helped us with ordering from the menu. Not only was the food delicious...there was... More

This is not a fancy restaurant but does not have the fancy prices that Disney restaurants have. The food is great, the staff are incredibly friendly and the portions are huge! We had the platter for 2 and ended up taking home enough food for 3 more meals. You can't beat the staff. We went for dinner and then breakfast... More

While visiting the area, our family took us to this neighborhood bbq joint. Food was very tasty, the service was very friendly and the food arrived very quickly. Overall, we had a very good experience!

Not bad...not the best I've ever had. It's average. Price is decent and waitress was good. Could use more than one BBQ sauce to choose from.

Was excited to try this local mom and pop bbq place and was extremely disappointed. Had the pulled pork sandwich and it was very dry. It doesn't come out mixed in bbq sauce. The sauce is already on the table and then you can add it to your meal. To me that's not bbq. Would not recommend!
