Consistently Good

This bunch has it down pat. Reliably good (finger-lickn'), traditional stuff-brisket, pulled pork, etc. The sides are just OK-the sliders-gotta try 'em once so you can home in on your fave. The sauces are thin but tasty. Pleasant service, no ambiance-lot's of take out going on here. Go across the... read more

After eating at the other BBQ place in town we decided to try this place. The menu was limited, but the flavor is good. It is a little pricy and indoor seating is tight. Plenty of seats outside in warmer weather.

While visiting the area, I was really excited to try some Southern Maryland BBQ. I opted for this local restaurant over the proven Mission BBQ only a mile away. I will be begin with stating that everyone at this restaurant was very friendly. It was my first visit to the restaurant, but I was treated like family. I ordered Baby... More

Best Q in town, although Mission BBQ is a close runner up. Nice southern charm, small menu, but filling portions.

Certainly not an overly fancy place, but that isn't the draw here. While they are known for barbecue, I had the jerk chicken sandwich. It was by far the largest piece of chicken breast I have ever seen. I took three bites of just meat before I hit the bun which was an average size hamburger-type bun. The meat was... More

Smokey Joes is a very good BBQ. I have never sat and ate at the restaurant but typically just pick up the food from them to go.

Ate here after seeing the restaurant when driving by. We arrived during the lunch rush and orders were taken fast and filled with a small wait. They have several BBQ offerings; I went with the French Dip which was a large pit beef sandwich with dipping au jus. The pit beef had a great flavor and was more than enough... More
