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

We went on a Saturday at 1ish. There was another group there when we arrived and one more came as we left. They pulled fresh pork out, but didn't have the chicken available yet. My husband had the brisket and pork. I had the pulled 1/4 lb. pork sandwich. The house sauce was fantastic and they had several additional flavors... More

Located in an odd part of town, Five Star has food worth going back for. The brisket and pulled pork are divine. Even the sides are good. And today, I said I wanted cole slaw for my side, then changed my mind and asked for beans. I got both, no extra charge. That is service!! The restaurant has basically no... More
