Yum yum yum!

Our visit was based from trip advisor views and it was well worth it! There was three of us and we all enjoyed our food with two pulled pork sandwiches and a burger that was to die for! However; we did get an order or BBQ puppies and they were hush puppies with tiny bits of pulled pork in them... read more

We brought our grandson here. Wife had pulled pork platter, which she found disappointing, spouse had ribeye special, which was outstanding, grandson had the all-you-can-eat ribs special, which he never had a second serving of. Sides were so-so at best. Service was good. Really looked forward to trying the restaurant, but we were disappointed overall.

Actually stopped here in May 2014 on the way back from the Lost Sea Cave. This restaurant was an awesome place to eat and when I go back to the Lost Sea Cave, I will stop at Bradley's BBQ again!!!

We had ribs and a rib eye steak. The ribs were meaty and the sauce adequate. The pork hush puppies were different, and I would have preferred a traditional recipe. The steak was a nice cut and cooked as requested. Service was very good. A good meal at a good price with service better than average.

Cozy atmosphere, nice people and very good food! Really liked the "pork puppies", they were delicious. My husband and I both had the pulled chicken. Comes with Texas toast and 2 sides. I had the pork puppies and the applesauce. The applesauce was a homemade type applesauce that was chunky and sprinkled with cinnamon. Very good!

My family stopped over for lunch. My mom and sister enjoyed the meal. My Japanese kids love the burgers for they used 100% meat, tender and juicy. I enjoyed the cheese sticks too. The price is reasonable for a group of seven people. The service was a bit slow that time probably there were so much people when we went... More

The pulled pork sandwich had hard pieces of gristle, bone and fat that I could not eat. The beef sandwich had good flavor but was dry.
