Went based on trip advisor ratings. Couldn't have had better food. Ribs and chicken top notch. Sides also good. Must have the hush puppies. Service was amazing. Absolutely a must if in the spartanburg area!

They have several sauces to choose from, but we like the western sweet sauce so were very pleased. We got the combo plate and the sauce that came on the ribs made them very juicy and the best of our Carolina experiences. You add whichever flavor sauce you want to the pulled pork. The hush puppies were bready and we... More

We lucked into finding this place via the near me now TA option. We were hunting Carolina BBQ as we were passing through the state. Love all the regional variations. I was a little leary of the decor when we arrived, but was pleasantly surprised. Our server was friendly and hospitable. She kept the sweet tea flowing, and it conveniently... More

The food is good with one exception. The ribs,chicken and sides were above O K. The servers were friendly, efficient and accommodating. The except is the pork barbecue. Because I am used to beef Texas barbecue I couldn't squeeze enough flavor to enjoy it. The mustard and vinegar sauces were interesting but didn't bring it near flavorful. I tried the... More

Perfect "local" restaurant to visit to avoid the chains. Great selection of BBQ at decent prices. Recommended.

We both had the pork bbq sandwich with the bbq slaw (the bbq slaw MADE this dish). The sweet tea was really good and the friendly staff were top... More

Really fantastic, authentic Carolina-style barbeque. Probably the very best sauce we've ever had (Gold Sauce). Chopped pork BBQ melts in your mouth, and the sweet tea is just perfectly sweet without killing the tea flavor. The BBQ slaw (never heard of it before!) was excellent and very tangy, good for those who don't like creamy slaw. And the baked beans... More

We've eaten at this restaurant for years. Informal, clean, excellent BBQ. Buy some sauce to go! We like the ribs/Q/Etc. Fast service, good tea. This place has the patina of time. The fries are usually hot to boot. Highly recommend! Again....good sauce!
