Short: quaint does not describe this joint but the food is smashin' it. We had a double and a triple combo. Ribs, chicken, pulled pork, sausage in the mix. It was all so good. The Mac and Cheese was creamy delicious, baked bliss and ample in flavour and portion. Long: we loved the place. Not pretentious just good eats. It... More

Yes when you pull up there are chickens running around the yard! Dirt driveway around a run down house. Smokers are cooking things in the yard. Don't ask me why, but that adds to it's charm! It is like being invited to someone's house for a BBQ. You will eat off of plastic disposable plates and use plastic utensils. They... More

Gave it a try for lunch on a Thursday so it would not be as crowded as it is on Friday and Saturday. Ribs are truly divine and the sausage was fabulous! Friendly folks and great service. BBQ fans will not be disappointed!

Don't get me wrong - the other meats and sides were good, too. I especially liked the freshly made potato salad. But the ribs were the star of the show. I still suggest trying one of the combos for a variety - but make sure ribs is one of your choices. Very informal setting - you eat at picnic tables.... More

Don't expect a fancy setting, but just good BBQ. The restaurant is extremely casual with food being served on paper plates with plastic forks and knives and paper towels. We went on a Friday night and it appeared that the lot next door was charging for parking, which they were not, as long as you ate at Als. The ribs... More

I have posted two negative reviews. For some reason, they go away. This BBQ joint is ok, but be careful that you get what you order. Waiter promises to "cut us a good deal"' n$65 later.....minimal food. We'd have done better jut to order off the menu. Stick to the menu!!! We won't go back. Poor---

Have had good barbecue and not so good barbecue. This is great barbecue! All 4 of us loved it! The sides also were incredible! Spicy collared greens. Yummy beans and mac and cheese! Gotta go
