Went here for a family member's birthday and the service was excellent. I wasnt impressed with the food, it was pretty average. best thing was the mac & cheese. The amount of food for the price was great too. I wouldnt go here if I was craving BBQ but if I was passing by and wanted something to eat, I... More

My family had a catered celebration and what says summer better then BBQ. The catering staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. They had all you need along with food and plates, including moist towelettes and sauces. The food was hot, fresh and tender. The ribs fell off the bone and the brisket was tender and yummy. Cornbread, beans, slaw and... More

I've been to this location multiple times over the last few years. Food is always acceptable and typically the bartender on duty is good. My most recent trip wasn't all that great. I got the brisket platter and the bartender was slow to take my initial drink order and food order. When the food came out he didn't bother to... More

I never been to this place before and have to say the service was great and the food was awesome and they have a good size menu to choose from also good for family meals. If you love chicken and ribs this is the place.

We always have good food here. The service is sometimes a little off, but never bad. We wish they would put something on the table to snack on, like maybe some chunks of cornbread or something so we can taste all the different sauces while we wait. Portions are huge here, and the food is always tasty and comes pretty... More

I called in an order, it was forgotten. I arrived early, and nothing was done about it. Instead of comp'ing my food, after my hour wait, I was given a $10 giftcertificate so I could come back and try again. I used it at another location.

Ate at bar one evening and arrived 2 minutes before Happy Hour ended and Bartender stayed away from me until after 7 so he wouldn't have to serve me prior. No big deal but I see this a lot at restaurants with Happy Hours where staff freezes up at time it ends and doesn't know whether to serve or not... More

Food is OK. Spare ribs were tough but the chicken was good. We did enjoy the sides (cole slaw, corn bread).
