I believe in second chances. There are many reviews on Yelp, UrbanSpoon, and the Web that speak of the many incarnations of this spot. Being a BBQ person I had to give them a try. Was I SHOCKED!! The quality of both food and service was outstanding. I ordered a full slab of ribs, the Cross-Ties with Brisket (french fries... More

The basket of ribs was very good. Also the slaw. Very inexpensive. The place needs a revamp, however I understand it's a small town place.

As a local, I enjoy this restaurant because they have good food and the prices are reasonable. It is not extremely difficult to find from the Villa Rica hotels, but it's about 7-8 minutes from the hotels on I-20 at exit 24.

HORRIBLE! from the moment we walked in. If the employees paid as much attention to my party as they did themselves this place would have a better rating. Stew was cold too, tenders...over priced all together. Never again!
