Another Southern Pride Smoker

These guys put out as good a buffet as you will find for under $9.00 Several meats- great BBQ- and home made sides. Also a good salad bar and desserts. Best BBq between Evansville and Louisville.

If you are looking for some "home cooking" they have a great selection. I didn't know how hungry I was before going here. Had to skip breakfast and go straight to work then we all went here and I had a hard time not eating too much. Really enjoyed their stuffing and casserole too. Ate that instead of dessert. Has...

We went here for lunch after a business meeting and was not sure what to expect. But the people were nice, the pulled pork was tasty, the amount of food was amazing and the price was cheap. I'm a bbq snob and have eaten pulled pork in Raleigh, Charleston, Nashville, Austin, and Kansas City (both), and this was pretty good.... More

Buffet always available, plus many choices on menu. Dining room recently (2011) enlarged. Friendly, home- town people with a great product to share. Buffet is $11.95 on weekend, offers more choices. Very casual, low-key place. Come here to eat your fill of barbecue.

If you like bland tasteless leftovers that came out of a can, this is the place for you. Supposedly it is better on the weekends, but I doubt I give them another chance. Lettuce out of a bag, instant potatoes, and they do not even try to cover it up. Everything from the salad to dinner items and dessert ALL... More

My family & I at there because of the good reviews. They had a BBQ Buffett which sounded great, but tt was dry & expensive ($8.95). Atmosphere is not to good either. Looks like it hasn't been updated since 1970. The only thing I could say positive about this place was their dessert. But I wouldn't recommend this place.
