Wow. Hubby, two friends and I went on a Sun. night. It was the day after the Art Show and a soccer weekend, so that may have had something to do with it. We walked in and we're told it would be a 20 min. wait, which was fine. There were about 4 other people waiting. I never did notice... More

They did a phenomenal job with the renovation. Beautiful place. Food was excellent. We had brisket and chicken they do give large portions. The only negative I can say and its minor is they have a single bathroom and the faucets are off to the sides of the sink bowl and create a mess of water on the counter. Definitely... More

Wife and I were walking around Lititz July 4th weekend and noticed they had opened after months of renoveations. Much better atmosphere than old Manheim location, but the food is what truely shines. If you like ribs...they are among the best anywhere. Only got half a rack but left satisfied...plenty of meat and the sauce is great. Service was good... More

New restaurant/brew pub in downtown Lititz. Attractive interior,friendly and fast service. Limited menu of pulled pork,brisket, chicken and ribs. My wife and I shared a sampler platter of all 4 meats. It was huge and not for 1 person. Pulled pork and ribs were excellent and brisket and chicken were good. Fresh cut fries excellent,but cole slaw was spicy. Would... More

Long awaiting the new restaurant to our quaint town of Lititz - we walked up . . There was an opening at the bar so we decided to sit there. We ordered smoked jalapenos for an app - had ribs & chicken sandwich for our dinners. Food was fantastic! Ribs fell off the bone - chicken was very tender -... More

We were looking for something different for dinner and decided to stop at JoBoys. The BBQ was better than what we have had at other BBQ stops in the county.

We waited a while to be seated even though the place was not busy. I had to ask 3 times for a glass of water. Our wine was warm and probably never been chilled. When we finally got our food both orders were wrong and we were not given silverware or napkins. I had to track the waiter down twice... More

We were only in town for three nights and luckily we stopped here on our first night. It was so good we went back again before leaving! The food was all fantastic barbecue done right - cooked slowly! It is unusual for my wife, my 8 year old, and I to all consider something a "favorite", but this qualified. The... More

We've eaten here a couple of times, and weren't all that thrilled any time we were there. The place has been a bar/hotel for well over 100 years, and it's showing it's age. The staff was friendly and accommodating enough, and the portions were adequate; but I can't say the BBQ was anything extraordinary. Neither were the sides we had.... More
