Okay, I am a BBQ snob and I admit it. We try BBQ places all over the place, and do it often. This place has a great downtown location, is nice if you are visiting and walking the area, and just need a BBQ fix. Staff was very nice and attentive. It has okay BBQ, and okay sides. They do... More

when I arrived I was hungry for ribs. Was given the wise advice - order 1/2 and if you want more we will give you the other half. With the 2 delicious sides of colslaw and potato salad I was more than satisfied with 1/2 rack. The rack was a bit more fatty then I like, but meaty, moist tender... More

The barbecue and selections of sauces were good. The corn casserole, Brunswick stew and beans were very good. Nice, clean place with great service. Perfect for a beautiful day in north Georgia!!

Stopped in for a mid day lunch. I had Brisket and pulled pork and the wife a brisket sandwich. Both of us enjoyed the our meals. Fast friendly service and a good size place.

This is a great little place to have a relaxed lunch. The BBQ is terrific and the best part for me is they have gluten free buns. Lots of restaurants say they have gluten free menu then they say "order it without a bun".....sad.

It may just be their style, but it was the soggiest BBQ I've ever had! Wasn't bad tasting, but not a whole lot of flavor, nothing to write home about.

Don't let the location fool you! It's a small place located next to a convenience store. But they're food is out of this world. They start early in the morning every day with fresh meat on the smoker! The smell is divine! No matter what you try you can guarantee it will be fantastic. And if you can't wait for... More

Pulled pork so flavorful and juicy it would be great without any sauce. The service is great and personable.
