Went the other day for lunch. No one at the hostess stand, waited over 10 minutes, no ever came around to take our names. We left so cannot comment on the food.

Brisket is by far the best. Just have to get there early before they sell out. Pork sammie is also very good. Everything is fresh and hot when it comes out. The servers are some of the best around. Don't have to ask for a drink refill, they take care of it before you run out. Overall one of the... More

We are a family of 6 that lives close to this location. One of our family has severe food allergies. This restaurant was totally unhelpful at establishing what would be safe for our son to eat. On another occasion we went back and brought food for our son to eat that was safe and we were told that he could... More

This place a really good service and delicious food. This past visit I had the pork tenderloin with the hot cinnamon apples and mashed potatoes with gravy. The atmosphere is good as well. I highly recommend you stop by and give it a try if you are in the Reading area near Paper Mill and Broadcasting Roads. There are also... More

We made the right choice for dinner that evening. After checking into our motel we made a beeline to this restaurant after seeing it on our way to check in. It was late evening, and we had travel long and far since breakfast without stopping for a meal. We had one of these at our home area, but for some... More

We walked in and were warmly & promptly greeted. The manager walked by and welcomed us once we were seated. Sarah, our server, was awesome. She was very friendly, made several suggestions, refilled drinks promptly, and is a great asset to this location. We shared a sandwich and had chocolate cake/ice cream. The sandwich was Ok, the FF's and dessert... More

Very friendly waiters and waitresses and the food was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. It is more than barbeque on their menu

Four of us dined here and each ordered different items. The pulled pork was a huge hit with my friend, I enjoyed the salmon - even though the portion size was small. The kids meal included macaroni and cheese and this had a funny taste and the kids did not care for it. On previous visits others had the BBQ... More
