Everything in this place tastes like smoke...if you like that, you'll be happy....I do not like the heavy smoke taste...tried just French fries (they are smoky too)

Love the pork barbecue with side cold slaw. Lot of pork for the money. Pork very tender and moist. Service was fast and very pleasant.

the chicken, ribs, and brisket are amazing. The sides are generous. Fast Food setting is a turnoff. This is not cheap but the only great barbecue in town!

Although we live in the city, we had never eaten here till today when we attended a geocaching event. Glad it was here! We both had the pulled pork with sides. The pork was excellent and we each got a large serving...probably could have shared, but glad we got our own! Waffle fries were awesome! Corn bread and the Texas... More

This is a chain restaurant we have never eaten at before. We had the special for the evening and the portion were huge. My husband and I could have shared a meal. Every thing was good. The staff was friendly and polite.
