Genuine stick BBQ at the lake

This restaurant is not a chain and does a great job with everything I've tried. Most recently, I ordered a brisket sandwich for lunch and the meat was tender and perfectly smoked. The price was under $7 as well. Staffing is good even at a bit of an odd hour for lunch.

We had friends in town and thought we would try out this restaurant as it was ranked number four. It was a good barbeque but in my opinion Bandanas is better. The service was terrible. Our waiter spoke just above a whisper and our drinks were not refilled without us asking for them to be refilled. This would be understandable... More

We are at the lake most weekends. There are many choices for barbeque in the area, but 9/10 times this is our place of choice. Savana has been our server many times. She is always friendly and serves us well!

Due to the ratings on Trip Advisor, we decided to give this place a try. A "Raise the Red Flat" signal was that there was only one car in the parking lot - however, we were early (5:15) and thought that might be the case and took a chance. The waitress was friendly and helpful. I ordered the Grilled Chicken... More

I stopped by here for some takeout. I tried a 2 meat combo with brisket and pulled chicken along with a side salad and fries. The food was packaged perfectly for takeout with everything separate. My disappointment came when I tried the meat. The chicken tasted as if it had been cooking all day in sickeningly sweet sauce maybe in... More

I hadn't been here for about 10 years, so to hear they were still around was very exciting. Everyone in our group had pulled pork, and it was exquisite. Great prices, and great sauce! Will definately be returning.

We read all the wonderful reviews so were surprised to find out no one had mentioned you can only get beer or soft drinks. No wine, no full bar. It is clean, and family friendly... the staff is friendly. We ordered the sampler platter to share which was PLENTY for us. Good barbeque - not great. They have a bunch... More

Our group of 13, RVers from Minnesota, KC, St. Louis, and New Jersey all raved about what they ate being the best ever. The service was quick, efficient, and friendly.

The unique taste of this BBQ is well worth the trip to Half-Sauced. Their pit beans have a very smokey flavor--like nothing I've tasted!! Our waitress was as sweet as could be and was extremely friendly and very attentive to us! We will definitely go back....and our kids loved it too--bonus!!
