Great smoked meat

Delicious! Great smoked meats! The sides were excellent also. Worth the stop and service was very quick. Easy to access from the highway. Try the burnt ends with sauce. Kids menu available.

We had the buffet to try various things, pork and chicken were ok, but had BBQ flavor, for that you would have to add sauce. Received complaints that the beans were hard, which is not typical of properly good beans. The Mac and cheese was overlooked and the potato salad and brownies are ok. The upkeep both of the restaurant... More

We ordered brisket, rib tips, and pulled pork and WOW this place is legit! The smoky flavors and marinates/rubs they use are delicious. We ordered our sauce in the side because of previous reviews and just added however much we liked, which was perfect. The sides are amazing, and at most places they are just okay. But the baked beans... More

I have never been to a restaurant at 7PM on a Monday night and there not be one person in the place, (other than the server and cook). I was greeted politely, although with no cheerfulness or expression. I told her that I had never eaten there before and was looking for a recommendation for takeout. She did offer a... More

I ordered the mix plate for 1 with baked beans and mac n cheese. I didn't like the flavor of the beans. The mac n cheese was extremely mushy and lacked flavor. The meats seemed to have a good amount of smoke but unfortunately they drown all there meats in sauce, can't taste much other than the bbq sauce. The... More

The food was good and worth the visit. The price seemed a little bit costly just for a lunch stop. The atmosphere could use some improvements.

Remember that really good bbq that you ate on your last trip south? That not fussy, always friendly kind of place that's a meat-lover's dream...we've got that here in Battle Creek (and Sonny has opened a second pit in Kalamazoo). I like getting their tangy bbq on the side so I can enjoy the smoked flavor of the brisket fully,... More

They are lacking vegetable options for the sides. My son had the smoke wings basket with fries they were great My daughter had... More
