Pretty good

Best thing about here is the cornbread and the bread pudding for dessert!!! It's not the best food ever and the service is fine nothing outstanding. I still go here at times but it's a bit to pricey in my opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed my steak & rib combo. The 5 oz. steak was juicy, tender, with lots of flavor. The size was perfect. The 4 Beef ribs had a significant amount of meat on each of them. Dave's BBQ sauce is sweet and tangy. It's not my favorite BBQ sauce, but in my Top 5. The sides of W. beans... More

I love the rib tips. I got the dry rubbed ones the last 2 times I went. Really good. The hot links are good as well.

If you are a true lover of BBQ/Pork, this is the place to be. True they have a large menu with endless choices, but they really do specialize in BBQ! The wait on a table is always reasonable (even on weekends and holidays), and the staff is very friendly and will always help you with making the best choices! Keep... More

We have eaten here many times in the past but I have never thought to review it until after our visit yesterday. Normally we visit for dinner, but went for lunch while out Christmas shopping. We were the first table of the day - they open at 11:00 am and we got there around 11:30 am or so? Our waitress... More
