What a joke! Go to Bandanas BBQ for better food and less money! Overpriced!! Small portions!! Everyone kept asking if there were any specials, because the prices were ridiculous!1

They serve the Feast in the top of a garbage can lid! We love it because it feeds the whole family and each person can have a bit of everything they like. It was more than a group of five needed. The brisket is very tender and the cornbread is nice and sweet.

This was my first time, and I will say I would give them another try, but liking a good BBQ was expecting the famous, but it was only average. The ribs were a little tough and did not fall off the bone. They were out of the coleslaw the night I went.

Ate here while staying at the Holiday Inn on Monastery. Good Eats, mostly BBQ, but you can find something else on the menu if that's not your bag.
