This restaurant is a little off the beaten path but is so worth the drive. Make sure your GPS is on as it's easy to miss as signage from the road isn't great. Once you get to their front door, which is on the side of the building, you start to see that this is going to be a nice... More

Been several times. Great food! Great service! Never had to wait very long. Parking is limited. The sides could be better, but the meat is the best! You won't be disappointed!

The first visit I was not impressed but a month or so later I came back and found they had really improved. The ribs were done just about perfect and the pork was juicy, tender and flavorful. I especially like their corn bread. It's not a fancy place, you order at the counter, get you drink or beer and carry... More

This place is so good, I thought I was in Memphis, KC, or San Antonio instead of Fort Wayne. Tried the ribs and pulled pork - outstanding Q. The cheesy potatoes, apple pie baked beans, and slaw were all excellent. Perhaps a tad pricey, but good value.

Tried this today. Overall pretty good. Got a sampler platter. Pulled pork was great, ribs good, burnt ends ok. Baked beans & cole slaw great. Didn't try brisket, chicken or wings yet. Overall pretty good place for barbecue. Smell is overwhelming when you pull into the lot.

I'm not sure what I really expected walking in - perhaps a little whole in the wall. The ambiance was clean, although a bit sterile for a BBQ place. Ordered a pulled pork sandwich with cheesy potatoes. Soaked the sandwich in their mild sauce, and no longer cared about the sterile ambiance. The potatoes were also amazing! One note though... More

One of the best BBQ's in the country! Everything is tasty and the workers are friendly. Wish that it could be a bigger spot because it gets VERY crowded during lunch.

The ribs was very nicely seasoned and tender. Three types of sauce but wasn't overly impressed with any of them. The ribs are good enough that sauce wasn't required. Sides were tasty (string beans and cucumber salad) and the lemon cheesecake bar is excellent with the best crust every.

It has been over a year since my last review of this place. I have been a regular ever since. Last night I had my fall back...The Pulled Pork Sandwich. I can eat these things until I fall asleep. I love to soak them in all 3 BBQ sauces that are placed on the table. I also keep plenty of... More

This place is a must go! From the main street, you'll question whether you are at the correct place and wonder what all the fuss is about----but from the back it's more of what you hear about. There's a painted wall of dancing pigs and picnic tables so that you may eat outside. The inside was packed as were the... More
