BBQ Terrific, Pizza Not to Our Taste

From the Pulled Pork to Ribs to Chicken, all of the BBQ is great. There is plenty of meat, no lean bones and thoroughly smoked/cooked. We get the excellent sauce on the side so we can add to our taste, I often don't use it at all. The Pizza is another story. We were told that it was terrific... read more

I stayed in town one night and ordered pizza from Papa Jimmie's. They made one of the pizzas with thin crust and one with "fluffy" crust as requested. The pizza was done on time as promised and was very good. The crust has a sweet taste to it and I really liked it. I recommend this restaurant.

Bbq Brisket and pulled pork sandwiches are good. Pizza is just ok unless you splurge for the Barbecue pizza. This is a family owned business, which is cool but you literally have no idea what their hours are and you only can tell by looking for the lights on when driving down the street.

Wife and I stopped here and picked up a BBQ Brisket pizza and an order of the smoked wings with teriyaki sauce. Both were outstanding. Not much of a place to look at inside or out, but we were very impressed by the food and friendliness of the staff. Definitely someplace I would return to again.

There's nothing worse than being treated like giving a business your patronage is an inconvenience to the employee waiting on you. The food wasn't good enough to forgive the poor service. Just got the impression of not caring. Will not be back.

Food is good, but the service has been consistently terrible. Last 2 times I was there, I did't get my meal until after everyone else in my party had been served, eaten, and boxed leftovers. When I asked to speak with owner, I was told the owner would not talk to me. Never again.

BBQ pizza was okay, brisket a 1 out of 5 (where 5 is best). Furniture rather primitive. One food item forgotten until late in the meal. Salads delivered with pizza, not before meal.

Stopped in for dinner after a fishing trip . The Beer list needs some work, the BBQ, was pretty good, we had brisket, and pulled pork. The restaurant was small , the service was pretty good, server a little unhappy maybe. Overall I would go back for more Brisket.
