Stopped here with some very hungry family that were visiting and it turned out to be perfect. You place your order and get your food right when you walk in! No one left disappointed by the portion sizes or the quality of their food. The sauce is finger lickin' good! The price is just right, too. No complaints!

We stopped here after spending a couple hours looking for a new car in Blairsville. I would rate the place as average. At first we thought the line was for seating but it turned out just to be the line to order food. You walked to the counter, placed your order for ribs, chicken or whatever then some young kids...

Yes, no frills. I have seen Service areas with more ambiance. Food was totally self serve, sides in tubs for you to pick up as you go to pay. None of the food was remarkable or particularly enjoyable. I thought is odd that on the wall by where you order they had a long list of instructions on how to... More

Definitely no frills—fine by me. Walk-up to order at the counter, pick any of the sides in their plastic containers from the open-air refrigerated area, get your drinks and pay. I ordered only a plate of Baby Back ribs, and they brought it right over as I was paying. I don't know how long it would take if there's a... More

It's average to below, but is about what you expect in these parts. The meat is often dry, the beans are blah, but the slaw is really good. I wouldn't go out of my away to go there but if you are close it might be worth a try, but don't plan on stopping too late because for some reason... More

I've eaten here quite a few times and it's always excellent. It can be a little tricky to get into if you're traveling east from Pittsburgh, even though it's on the main road. You have to do a U-turn to get there. Their chicken and ribs are amazing. You can watch as they smoke it out back. We often buy... More

We took a detour, an hour out of our way to go to this restaurant. Through the hills of PA, passing strip malls and fields, really? My brother said this was the best barbecue. Since I was getting carsick, I doubted that I'd really appreciate this. We walked into this place and it looked like a real Texas place -... More

I've eaten here since they opened and even before, when they were just a little stand down the road. Everything is always delicious, satisfying and consistent. Love the ribs and chicken AND their pulled pork sandwich (w/ onions and pepperjack cheese) is one of my favorites. No frills-just great great food.

We got take out for 6 of us. We got way more than we needed. We got there late and they were out of beef. No matter, half chicken, ribs and pork bbq were all amazing. The sides were tasty as well! Got out for under 60 bucks. We were happy. Ate the left overs to lunch next day. Still... More

If you go I recommend the pulled pork over the ribs. tried both- the ribs not as tender. Their sauce is a "tangy" more vinegar taste than I prefer, but the pulled pork was very tender. The garlic in the mashed potatoes is not mild, you must love garlic. They also have chicken, cole slaw and pasta salads. Limited menu,... More
