Pretty darn good

Good service, food was good and plenty of it. Men had pulled pork and really liked it. The little cheddar muffins are killer.

We visited on Thursday night. The food was good, the service was good, but the price of a BBQ plate was a little high. You wouldn't typlically think that two BBQ plates with drinks would be over $40.

The menu has changed so much! A lot of good items have been removed! The quality has been going down hill for a while (we had a bad experience last time and they sent us a gift card). It seems like they are trying to cut corners everywhere they can. Toasted sandwiches weren't toasted. Condiments were lacking. Bummer all around.... More

1st of all service was excellent (Marshall) The food was good. Larger portions would be better for the price. The bbq and beans seemed to cause stomach upset all evening. May give it another chance some other time.

My sister took me to this place, because my husband and I were looking for great BBQ. This is a great spot for good food. Their biscuits are awesome, and it is refreshing to get real Southern sweet tea. Good place to eat!

We've eaten here many times over the years and the food quality never changes: it's always great! Our visit tonight was later than usual but Marshall, our server, was immediately on point. He makes you welcome, remembers you (even down to small details) and his command of the menu is extraordinary! If you don't know what you want, ask for... More

Great service, a creative menu for a BBQ place, but a little overpriced. $8 - $10 minimum for a sandwich.
