I've had Southern soul food BBQ many times in the South, but it was a surprise to find it so far north. They have successfully imported an authentic Southern flavor to the North Shore of Boston - bravo! The collard greens and smoked wings are amazing. This is a must visit place if you're in Peabody and you're looking for... More

Stop in on my way home from work to grab some BBQ pork to take home. Had eaten here in the past and food is OK, albeit a bit overpriced. Tonight when I walked in there was a family of four eating, and they were the only ones in the restaurant. I knew what i wanted and went right to... More

Great choices. A bit pricey but overall fun atmosphere. Do not expect the staff to know lots of info on the food.

When I saw the restuarant as listed as one of the better ones in Peabody MA I had to try it, being from TN. The service was great as was the food, and lots on your plate. I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Lots of UT paraphanlia on the walls! Fun!

One of my best restaurant visits ever, period. Does not look like much when you get there but man, they know how to barbeque. Everything we had was perfect, however their selection of sodas was a bit disapointing. But the food is great and this is a must go place if you are up in Peabody, highly reccomended. Cant wait...

When you walk in the door of this restaurant you can tell that their food is going to be good. The pleasant smell of wood smoke tells you that they don't cut corners or use artificial ingredients in their cooking. The baby back ribs are WONDERFUL, the baked sweet potatoes are really good, the Dixie chicken is great...and the price... More

We go here from time to time and always leave happy. I come from a family of Great Southern cooks, my Mother is from NC and makes the BEST Fried Chicken and Pecan Pie in the World.......but even she doesn't make cornbread as moist and delicious, and I've got to admit my Collards aren't as good as Tennessee BBQ.

I've been a satisfied customer for fifteen years. Their Memphis ribs are meaty, smoky and lean. Their slow smoking process gets rid of most of the fat, so don't bother with the baby back ribs. The brisket is also top notch. Based on my rib research, they have no competition.
