Brisket and wing is the way to go

We frequent this place but this time I tried a different combo. Brisket and wings this time. Brisket was a little dry and had to add sauce and the wings were done to perfection. Our server KellyM was very good, polite and friendly. I highly suggest popping in here if you are in the area.

Some friends took us out to eat here a few weeks ago. We loved the décor and our waitress was very friendly and provided us with great service. My wife is not a big BBQ fan, but she loved their beef brisket. I had their rib platter, and discovered that they have a very good barbeque sauce that they used.... More

Everytime we eat here they are so friendly and accomodating. We usually have a large group either two, three or four booths with young children. Friendly, great service and they are wonderful about bringing the kids meals out asap. We also ordered online, had a family member pickup on the way home and enjoy.

It was very crowded when we came in on a Saturday night, we were told it was going to be upwards of an hour wait (understandably so). We made our way to the bar to get a drink and order food to go, in the process of doing such, we noticed many open table tops in the bar. We sat... More

Easy parking surrounds this mall BBQ restaurant. Service is prompt and friendly. Open late hours, rare in this area. Well prepared standard barbecue food with a choice of four barbecue sauces. A pleasant chain restaurant that executes standard fare very well. Noise level is moderate at the table area and quiet on the patio.

This has to be one of our favorite places. The food and service is great here. If you don't mind the wait time you definitely would want to eat here. You don't want to wait and you still would like to try the food they have call ahead pick-up. We have done both ways. Everyone has their own favorites from... More

We used to like this place, but it is just another chain restaurant with big tvs and middle of the road food.

I was passing thru Reading and called ahead to order ribs, pulled pork and donuts to go. I arrived at the restaurant just about the same time the food was ready - and parked in the reserved "To Go" spot right by the door. The donuts were very good - but the ribs and pork were both a little dry.... More

I think this BBQ has the best ribs out of all the others that are in the Reading area, (and there are a lot of other places) they also have smoked wings that are amazing, they aren't just wings, although they have those too, this is smoked wings so make sure you say "smoked wings" when you order them.

I live in the D.C. area and frequent Burkes County twice monthly. Every single time I pass by this restaurant it is incredibly busy. All the other restaurants in the vicinity are only half full. I usually don't have a lot of time for dinner but on one occasion I decided to brave the crowd. Was it worth all the... More
