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... read 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.

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!
