So-so Barbecue. Not impressed with their preparation. It was pretty stringy and the flavor was poured onto the meat, not cooked into it. Their sides are good.

Farm Boys BBQ has consistently provided excellent food. But folks, there is a lot more to this restaurant than just BBQ. Their fried chicken is hot, crispy and delicious. Lots of veggies, large salad bar, dessert bar. Their hash and rice is the best I have ever eaten. If you leave hungry it is your fault! Give them a try... More

Top ol line for consistency. Eat here frequently because they always have good food. The menu never changes, but foods they cook are always perfect.

Nice variety of specials from seafood like... More
