Very good BBQ

Mickey Roos is a good place to have an excellent meal. They have live entertainment in the evening and many locals as well as visitors go there regularly.

It may not be exactly like Texas BBQ but it close enough and as close as I have found. It is excellent food at a great price.

We were there 3 nights in a row for special events/concerts. Rick Shannon & his staff were absolutely WONDERFUL; friendly, accommodating & incredibly efficient, considering the crowd they had to deal with! It's a GREAT music venue, with a stage that is slightly raised & tables arranged, so that almost everyone could see well! The food is delicious & plentiful,... More

Under new ownership and things have changed. Still have beer specials during happy hour. Service is ok. Padded comfortable seating is gone. Menu has changed. Portions are smaller and prices are higher. Food is good but over priced for what you get. I left there hungry. Used to be one of my favorite places to eat at but now it's... More

This place is a bar, even though they advertise for families. They had live music, which was way too loud. We actually just ordered our food to go, because my 9 year old twins couldn't stand how loud the music was. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and kept apologizing for how loud it was. Other patrons (drunk men)... More

Male servers, cold food, smaller portions and bigger prices, smaller menu (no potatoes), and new divided plastic plates that make you feel like you're eating at a cafeteria. We're long time customers - but won't be going back.

The pulled pork nachos are great as well as the ribs defiantly worth a run trip. Service was great as well as the food and had great entertainment.

There is nothing special about this BBQ place. The BBQ itself is not that great. Last time we tried their nachos the cheese was velveta. Gross! We have tried them a couple of times and both times they messed up our order. It happens but we had gotten take out and had to drive all the way back to the... More

Wonderful food. Loved the Sample platter with Sausage (best I've ever had), Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork. Came with a choice of 2 sides.....Beans (don't miss these) they were terrific and Potato Salad (on the recommendation of the server)....absolutely awful. Go for the coleslaw. Only complaint, the band was so loud we had to sit outside if we wanted... More

Great place to stop in and watch the games, wonderful drinks, good barbecue and great sides. We chose this spot after a day in Franklin ancestry hunting. Was looking for a local spot and was happy to see it was a Barbeque joint. Also had a great selection of televisions to watch college football. Had a great server Christy who... More
