The BBQ ribs are good, but used to be even better.

We have been coming here for many years, and it seems that the BBQ ribs, which we always get, had been getting less tasty than they were before. Specifically they used to have a wonderful smoky taste to the meat that indicates long and slow smoking, now they are just OK.

I am not a big barbecue eater, so when some co workers took me there (twice) I was not sure; but I had their chicken and it was very good. The only thing I have negative to say about it would be is the location. The building and parking lot is very small and hard to maneuver, but food is... More

We always get great service when we come here. Honestly, I don't like the food very much. The ribs are good but the sauces are not. I just wish they had a little sweet baby ray. My husband loves this place and can't speak high enough of it.

We love this place! This was our second time and we will definitely be back whenever we pass through the area. Great tasting meat and sauce, generous portions, and reasonably priced. Wonderful!!

Saw this place on TripAdvisor app while traveling back to Ohio from Chicago. I wouldn't drive the two-miles from the interstate for it again, but I'm sure it's worth an occasional visit if you live nearby. Let's start with the good - the Mike's sauces were pretty darn good. As far as the rest, I always try the brisket anytime... More

Love the pulled pork and that's all I get because of past experience with the baby backs and the chicken. Both have always let me down - undercooked everytime. Sauces are awesome!

The food was absolutely delicious. Our crowd of 35 guys loved the BBQ pork, BBQ chicken and BBQ beef. South Street makes killer onions rings too. The cole slaw and potato salad was perfect. Can't go wrong with anything on their menu!!! My mouth is watering just typing this review. SERIOUSLY!!!!

Gotta love it - a hole in the wall restaurant right along railroad tracks that serves up great, smoky BBQ. It's a very busy place during lunch times, which is usually when I go, but it's worth the wait. It's not a long wait and a fun place to sit with friends. Everything I've had (from sandwiches to ribs) has... More

Had a brisket sandwich baked beans and an order of onion rings. Had no complaints about any of it . The rings were awesome , hand cut and battered, huge portion for the price.

My favorite sandwich available here is the Kansas City. They have a variety of sauces available, all of them good. The side items could be better; they aren't horrible, just not great. If you stick with fries as the side, you will not be disappointed. The beans taste like salt and ketchup are the main ingredients.
