Surprisingly good

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.

First of all, let me say that I do not understand why any restaurant would allow the staff to actually sweep the carpets, and I do mean with a broom folks, while you are eating! This is utterly disgusting, and not sanitary! I shall go on, the tables are not very clean, nor are the menu's. Call me old fashioned,... More

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

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.

Went to this BBQ place on a Saturday night in April 2011 for the first time. Service was fast and attentive, with the owner walking around asking how things are and talking with the customers. I got the 1/2 rack of ribs, and my wife got the BBQ pork plate. Both of us got Brunswick Stew. I found the ribs... More

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!
