Inconsistant

The first time we ate at Archie’s it was great. The next time not so much. We love BBQ so we gave it another shot. My ½ rack was excellent but my husband’s was not (tough). We will try again. I wish I could give this a better review but it has been very inconsistent.

We had the half rack of ribs and pulled chicken. The pulled chicken was very good, but the ribs were just average. True, they fell off the bone, but there was no seasoning (not even salt). Even a generous helping of the BBQ sauce at the table wasn't quite enough.

We enjoyed the food ( brisket, pulled pork) but were astounded at the prices. They need a small sandwich option and a side should be included with a meat plate meal. Don't see how a family with kids to feed would choose it in spite of the casual BBQ joint atmosphere.

Brisket moist, however could have used a bit more time on the smoker. Pulled Pork good,moist and flavorful. Ribs good, fall off the bone tender, with the addition of sauce very good. Cornbread, moist, sweet and yummy. All in all would eat hear again. Bit over priced.

I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn't south of the Mason Dixon line! Fantastic BBQ. We found out about this eatery the day before our vacation ended. I'm glad that we didn't find it sooner because we would have eaten here every night! The portions are huge, enough for two meals, so don't let the price scare ya.... More

Very pricey bbq, not worth it. Ribs were chewy and tough, chicken was undercooked, they say pink is okay becsuse it is smoked but i assure you mine was almost raw. They tried to charge me 50 cents for to go plastic ware, and charged me 10 bucks for extra sauce. Both are free if you eat there.

The food was good. Service was good, had our meal as we sat down. The price is a little high for the atmosphere. Picnic like, with plastic utensils.
