Great Lunch

Ribs were awesome, Wings were some of the most perfectly cooked I've ever eaten, Brisket wasn't tender enough for me. Sauces could use a little ramp up for my taste. Service was great, will definitely return.

I really am not sure what all the fuss is about. It smells great when you drive by and all, but ehh.... I was not all that impressed. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. I had a prime rib sandwich that was on special. It was pure charred fat on cold plain white bread... And it was expensive. Sides were... More

Great BBQ in a very rustic (read authentic) setting! Large variety of meats and sauces. I loved the pulled pork plate and tried a sampling of all their sauces. I liked the Low Country sauce but everyone should be able to find one that suits their pallet. Not much seating inside and outside is as good as the weather. If... More

Great location with lots of atmosphere. We ate outside on picnic tables and met several very nice people. They have a good menu but the barbeque and sauces are only average. We live in GA so are lucky to have some great barbeque places near where we live. This barbeque is not the best the south has to offer.

Located on a roundabout, with outdoor seating in front near traffic, but the food was exceptional. Had Cuban barbeque, which is unique and super flavorful. Beer cold and inside atmosphere fun. Also tried their smoked pastrami, very tasty.

Great food. Fun and always crowed. We got our food to-go due to the busyness. Enjoyed ribs, they were out of brisket. This is a great value too.

We went twice, once on our way to Florida and once on the way back. It is 10 miles or so outside of Brunswick, GA but worth the detour. This rustic BBQ restaurant serves excellent food. We had the baby back ribs, brisket, turkey and chicken wings. All were excellent. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and spices... More

After a wonderful morning in St. Simon's Island, we ventured here! A hugh portion of beef brisket was on the sandwich. Same with the pork barbecue. Several sauces were on the table and for sale. Sides were good and draft beer also available! Great experience!
