This place wasn't very good. The brisket was tasteless and dry. The potato salad was awful. The chicken was decent and the sweet tea was good. You definitely DO NOT get what you pay for.

Very good barbecue and the fried pickles were some of the best we've had. Food came out a little slow but it was a Saturday night and we had a group of 8.

The wife and I had the brisket, it was moist and cooked to perfection, portions were generous and the sides were good for the most part, their recipe for cole slaw needs tweaking as it is not sweet enough which is surprising for a BBQ place.

This restaurant (with the silly name) actually is produces consistently good food. Their barbecued chicken is wonderful and they make good salads, and they will even do a really nice (cooked the way you want) steak. Prices are reasonable, bathrooms are clean, they can seat very big parties. Last time in I had tasted a friend's sliced brisket - I'm... More
