I LOVE having this place in the area and am sure there are none better in central Ohio. Great quality/causal atmoshere in the restaurant, good outdoor seating. Outstanding baked beans and pork barbque...which is all I've had. Seems a tad pricey but worth it.

Very good barbeque. Order at counter and you bring it to the table. Large portions. Located in area with multiple strip malls. Fair amount of traffic to contend with on a Saturday afternoon.

This is the only place we go to when visiting family in Powell. We love their pulled pork and pulled chicken the sides they have to offer are always delicious, and the lemonade taste like a Lemonade Shakle Up if you put a slice or two of lemon and a pack of sugar Good Stuff

Doesn't matter what your craving is, this BBQ is really good and you can pick from chicken, ribs, pulled pork and brisket. A little pricey but worth it.

Great restaurant for family dining. Best BBQ in town, beef brisket is a family favorite. The kids like the smoked turkey and corn pudding. Ribs and pulled pork are excellent as well.

Been here a bunch of times. BBQ is consistently very good with great sides albeit a bit pricey. Chicken is the best meat, but you can't go wrong with anything. Very good sauces (I like the spicy). Great for catering.

This place is so-so. I had the North Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich. It wasn't too bad. The bun became too soggy. The baked beans were fantastic and I highly recommend them. The mixed greens were too mushy. The service is fast and friendly. If I had to change anything, I would highly recommend they toast the buns. The atmosphere is... More

Generally super. Occasionally average. Forget the sides (they are OK, and the coleslaw is a highlight) and pig out on the meat. Priced right, prepared right, and piled high. Eat in, take out, and carry on. Pulled pork, chicken, ribs - you cannot go far wrong.

BBQ cut off the slab right in front of you to make excellent sandwiches on a bun. A lot of fixings to put on the sandwich such as pickles, onions etc. They also had a good selection of side dishes to compliment the sandwich. "So much food for a reasonable price." You won't be disappointed.
