Sooo worth the wait

We went here for lunch and the line was out the door with a long wait. They were scrambling to get everyone's order put together while you watched and it was well worth it. I had their home made chips and Mac & cheese. My mouth is watering as I write this. While in line, the guy behind us in... read more

Food: The meat, for me, has always been good. Great, smoky flavor. There have been times when the sides have been excellent, but other times they've been cold, over-salted, and stale. Service: While the service has generally been relatively friendly, they move slowly and don't seem to have a decent flow in place. It is exasperating how many times you... More

I have lived in the area for 18 years and it was only this week that I stopped for lunch at Five Star BBQ. I was a sales rep in the southern states and have eaten plenty of BBQ. This place will not disappoint a BBQ lover. Pass on the chain restaurants and go here. It is a bit expensive... More

The last two times we have asked them to cater a business meeting they called the morning of the meeting and explained that they had an issue and could not deliver the meal. We have eaten there many times and the food is great. We will keep ordering our business meetings meals from them........just need them to find a way... More

Love love love this place! My family and I are addicted! I will continue spreading the word. Best time to go is for dinner during the week! Less chaos (lunch is nuts) , faster service, and the place is stocked with sauce, meat, and sides! The staff is awesome too!

I've never gone here by myself or even eaten inside the restaurant, but I have had it catered to work many times and it is a company favorite. The meat is fantastic, but the best item on the menu is, no joke, the Mac 'n Cheese; simply amazing!! I highly recommend this place.

What a find! I'm a local and I'll eat my BBQ here from now on! This cafe is not fancy but has the best brisket and chicken anywhere. Haven't tried the pork or ribs…..yet. The meat is so tender, juicy and flavorful and that's before the sauces. My spouse enjoyed the house made 'Bama' Sauce, (mayo with horseradish and pepper).... More

A little place in an out of the way place. You order up front and then pay and take a seat with your plate in hand. I was worried when we walked in and saw the place...it was hot, and the Ladies room had an out of order sign. But then we got our food and sat next to a... More

Admittedly, we started going to Five Star BBQ five weeks ago and have literally eaten at least one meal there every week. The meat is always extremely tender (fall off the bone, melt in your mouth, every foodie colloquialism you can think of) and the sides are delicious as well (seriously get the coleslaw). The only downside (and this is... More
