Great food!

We happened to be in the area and stopped by for a late lunch. It was really good! My husband had the chicken and I had the beef. It had a smoky flavor, wasn't dry and the sauce is good. The sides were ok. Staff was very friendly and helpful! If we are ever back in the area, we will... read more

Nice bbq place right off the main road going to Guthrie from Clarksville. Plenty of different bbq meats to choose from with plenty of sides as well. It took about 5 minutes, if that, to get our food after we ordered. Everyone was very friendly and the hot bbq sauce was good as well. Stop here next time on your... More

Really great pulled pork, ribs, cornbread, fried okra, sides! Go early--they run out of their amazing ribs--& try a slice of chess pie. Also try the smoked sausage (huge sausage links) with their hot barbecue sauce--you will not be disappointed! This is a small mom & pop place, located off the beaten path--small scale--VERY non-fancy, family owned. Don't be afraid... More

Fun little place with great food. If you're in the area (and not from the south especially), if recommend stopping by. If you've never had fried okra, give it a go! Also, cornbread comes like a pancake which was a delicious surprise.

We stopped here on a whim as we were passing through the area. We had the pork chops and ribs. Both were tender, smokey and delicious! The prices were much lower than you'd expect for the quality and quantity of the food. The staff were very friendly and helpful. What a great find!

What can I say. The barbecue is killer and the sides are to die for. It doesn't get any better than this. The price is very reasonable. The place is simple and plain but clean as a pin. Nothing fancy but some of the best food you can find anywhere.

Not far from I-24, we found the people very accommodating, and the food was good. The portions were plentiful, & tasty. The dining area was quite clean & entertaining, to the eye. I got the "pulled pork" BBQ, with cornbread, & 2 sides. The homemade pies were calling, but I was satisfied with the main course, & will come back... More

Really good barbecue at a reasonable price. The sauces are smoky. The mild is pretty mild, but the hot sauce has a good kick without being "punishing". Do your taste buds a favor and get the sweet potato casserole as a side; it's delicious.

I saw the reviews on this restaurant and made a slight detour to make sure that we stopped for lunch there. Drive 25 miles out of your way if you have to, this is the real deal. Great people, great service, and above all GREAT BBQ ! I am from the Detroit area in Michigan and there is nothing like... More

Best BBQ chicken I have ever eaten. The pork is delicious too very smoky. Excellent sides & hot sauce as well. Usually busy so expect a wait. But well worth it.
