Smoky goodness and horseradish sauce with a kick

Good alternative to the usual fast food fare and just a few miles south of I64. Based on other reviews decided to give this place a shot. Early Friday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Plenty of parking for the RV. We were seated and orders were promptly taken. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich... read more

Call ahead if u want something specific. We showed up at opening on Sunday and they didn't have bbq ribs or coleslaw. Very disappointed. No point in getting there early. Don't care how good the substitute food was. U should have bbq at your bbq restaurant.

Honestly, this restaurant has a monopoly going. There really is not a another place to eat for miles around. We got lucky and in passing this place a second time while going through the Daniel Boone National forest we stopped for dinner The ribs fell off the bone and that happens with any me if you cook it long enough....

Based on other reviews, we looked forward to eating here on a late Sunday afternoon around 5:30 PM and were told they were out of pulled pork. Now, how can a BBQ joint run out of one of the most popular items before the dinner hour? Sure, demand could have been high that weekend, but come on, put more in... More

Overall food quality and portion size is very good. The last 3 times I went they were out of most items. This seems to be a common occurrence at the end of a weekend or on Monday. Barbecue sandwiches, brisket, and steak are good quality. Vegetables and sides could be improved.

My husband was on a business trip with two other guys. They wanted me to find a place for them to eat that was local to the area. This is what I chose and it was a BIG hit. They said the food was amazing and very reasonable. Would love to try it myself.

We were here for a baseball showcase and 23 of us invaded the place. We loved it. The BBQ was awesome but so was the catfish and frog legs. Great shakes with unusual flavors. Definately worth the visit.

We enjoyed a nice lunch one afternoon when the weather kept us off the lake for a couple hours. The service was decent and food was excellent.

My husband and I ate here last year and will never return. Our visit started off by our waitress taking forever to take our order. Our food took a long time to get done and be brought to us. It was all overpriced and we got no refills. I tried to order a couple different items from the menu, but... More
