Generous portions and delicious food found here

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor so I had to try it when I was visiting the area. If you don't know the area, use a GPS. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. We ordered the regular size pulled pork sandwich, beef brisket and fries. So much food! I couldn't eat all... read more

This is the first time our restaurant was called unclean, ever. This review is pretty suspicious but then I saw that you gave Arbys a 5-star review. ENOUGH SAID More

The day I arrived I noticed the sign stated they closed @ 8pm. I got there at 8:04pm. I walked in and the cashier, and who I presume was the manager said it was OK...they still had items available. They were also willing to turn on the fryers if I needed something off that portion of the menu. That's awesome.... More

First time there. The pulled pork was good. The ribs were horrible! Im used to fall off the bone and covered in bbq sauce. Not the case here...very very dry. I had to use a steak knife to cut them! The chili sucked too sweet! Needs to be hotter. The corn bread was good with the honey butter. Probably wont... More

Website says "Brisket sandwiches -- $7." When I ordered, the charge was $8.50. When I came home, I noticed that other items were lower on the website than the charge when you ordered.

Sorry for the confusion but it has been addressed. Beef and pork prices went through the roof last summer and we tried to hold off as long as we could without increasing our prices. But unfortunately they haven't come down, so we had to make some adjustments. Still the best value in town ! But how was the brisket sandwich... More

Pulled pork, pulled turkey are both delicious! The rolls they import from Philadelphia hold up to the meat and really do make the sandwich!!! I hope they always serve these!!!! Atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty plain and not real easy to find; however, the food is worth the trip.

They do have good BBQ but the prices are a little to high for me with a family of 5. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is very clean. Love the beef brisket...but for about 8 buck's it should ckme with fries...just sayin

The food is excellent and portion sizes are good for the price. My family got different meals and shared a "small" fry. There was nothing "small" about the french fry order! There was more than enough for 4 of us and they were very tasty!! There were many different bbq sauces with the condiments, so everyone should be able to... More

This is the best BBQ spot in Harrisburg. It's just consistently great. I get my sandwich topped with the sauerkraut and my cornbread toasted in a skillet and topped with honey butter. it's just plain good!

Love love love this place! Even my mother, who is very picky, liked it. I often get the large sized pulled pork and fries and heat the leftovers in the oven for dinner the next night. Very filling.
