Good BBQ is Hard to Find

This is better than average BBQ, but I've had better. The eat in facility is small and can be very noisy. I would go again.

Best barbecue in town! As a South Carolinian, I cannot recommend the pulled pork. But the brisket (with horseradish), ribs, turkey... Everything else is great! The cornbread is delicious, and the deep fried pecan pie is to die for. Opt for the Kansas City sandwich: brisket with onion rings and provolone.

OK... this place is not quite world class barbecue. I've had barbecue of a variety of styles and renown all over the country, and my current favorite is probably Bogart's in St. Louis. For a small town barbecue joint, however, this place rocks. Their ribs shine the most, although their pulled pork, brisquet and barbecued chicken are all good too,... More

We were driving north on I-65 and was lunch time and we really didn't want to stop for fast food, so I saw this place highly recommended on the Tripadvisor app. I'm glad we got there at 11:30 AM, because all the tables were taken by 12. You order the food at the counter and then pick it up within... More

I'd heard good things about this cute hole in the wall. Went for a family celebration, hoping for delicious bbq. I must say, the guys in the kitchen work quickly and get the orders out, which can be a challenge on a Saturday. You stand in line to order, then pay. They call your number when it's ready. Easy and... More

Just plain good BBQ. It ain't fancy, but it's the tastiest BBQ available in this area, except for what I make on my own grill.

Working here and found this on trip advisor. Had the chicken plate, cooked perfectly. Sides were home-style, liked that to.

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.
