This was my first visit. The potato salad was good and the pork was okay. None of the three sauces on the table had much flavor and the Brunswick stew was bland. The service was good. I'm still searching for a good restaurant in the Alpharetta/Roswell area for good barbecue and stew.

We were a large group of 14, but that didn't matter. They gave us enough staff that all of our appetizers and meals were ordered so that we ate together. Fried greet tomatoes....I didn't know I liked them, but I found out I love them! Wings....amazing, mac n' cheese....remarkable, turkey, it just didn't matter what people ordered. And everyone was...

As a NC resident we were happy to be in the Atlanta area and get some non-NC BBQ. This place did not disappoint. The ribs, coleslaw, and fries were all spot on. Great prices for the amount of food you get. Really appreciated the ribs not being fatty which you would find at most places. Service was great as well.... More

The atmosphere is great. You feel like you are in an old southern shack. Service was excellent and the food was great. I had the sliced BBQ beef, mac and chees and fried green tomatoes. They also had some local craft beers which were great. Will be back again when in Georgia!

We ate here our last night and was sorry we wouldn't have a chance to return that visit. They had chopped, pulled pork, ribs, Brunswick stew, sausage....anything you could want. 3 different sauces and all were great. The servings were Hugh and the price was reasonable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We will certainly return on out next... More

If the weather is nice and you are looking for some good bbq come here. The portions are huge but not the price. They have all the bbq you expect from pulled pork, ribs, sausage, Brunswick stew.... This is the best traditional bbq in all of Atlanta.

After hearing great things about the barbecue we thought we give it a try but probably won't go back. The barbecue was average and the sides were all a bit to Southern for this northern transplant.

Four of us just had an amazing dinner here outside. Very good service, and very good food at reasonable prices. Nice local atmosphere. Good beer selection, and the glass is frozen. There is inside seating too.

Don't miss the smoked wings! They are on the app menu and are amazing. The ribs and pulled pork are excellent, as well as the sides, which I've tried. However, it's the smoked wings which have me coming back for more. The restaurant is rustic, generally plays bluegrass music and is a very casual atmosphere. The service is excellent whether... More
