Nothing to write home about. Ribs were good but pit meats were way too dry. Service was great, no complaints there... but the food was just not there.

They are very good and it adds to the relaxed atmosphere. They also offer specials such as fish and grilled pork loin.... More

The $6.99 lunch special, a sandwich featuring barbecue... More

What a unexpectedly charming little restaurant. The crab cakes were full of lump crab meat and were not stuffed with fillers or... More

Food was very good we had potato soup, crab cakes, pit beef sandwich homemade cakes and beer and wine. Towards the end there was very... More

I go here for lunch once a week. The food is always great, the servers and owners are great, and they have fun sports nights for football games.

We have eaten here twice while visiting St. Augustine. The pit beef sandwich is excellent! It is served on a roll with thinly sliced onion. On the table, they have Horseradish sauce, Carolina BBQ sauce, and Sweet & Spicy sauce. I love it with the Horseradish and Carolina sauces. They also have good homemade onion rings that are super crispy... More
