Very Good Lunch Buffet

We stopped by for lunch while in the area and were very pleased with the lunch buffet that Brocks offers. It's nothing the size of the one Golden Corral offers but everything we tried was very good. Clean and quiet restaurant with a friendly staff that checked on us several times to see if we... read more

I ordered take out expecting a great bbq meal, paid 49 dollars for 2 bbq sampler meals and an order of the fried corn fritters. We got home and the ribs were like rubbery mcribs, they had no char/smoke flavor on them, they tasted microwaved and were covered in a dreadful mustard vinegar based sauce. The pulled pork was decent,... More

This was my first visit. The waitress was very nice and helpful in choosing a menu item that offered me a variety of tastes. She was attentive and the choice of food was perfect. Even brought me another BBQ sauce to try. Only thing I wish was different was they would have used fresh cut fries. I don't usually eat... More

About a month ago, I participated in an event that was catered by Brock's BBQ. While at this event, the food that participants could choose from was Pork BBQ, Grilled Chicken, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Chocolate Chips Cookies, Brownies and Sweet Tea or Lemonade to drink. So this review is essentially a review on the catering service. Want... More

The BBQ is typical of the area which is what I like. Want more flavor, use the sauce (which is good) on the tables. Buffet is good. I was there on Tuesday and fried chicken was on the line. It is cooked just right and was hot and fresh. Hot rolls were soft and fresh, mashed potatoes were good. Not... More

Well priced buffet available, different each night. The BBQ has little cooked-in taste, which seems to be par for BBQ available in this area. Does not stand out.

Went for indulgent barbecue food so I loosened my belt and ordered the "bbq combo platter" - the most expensive meat option - expecting huge portions of tasty, fattening pork, beef and chicken. Unfortunately it was all a little disappointing. While the barbecue chicken was passable, the minced pork, ribs and brisket lacked flavour. What's more, it was an easily... More

We were in the area on vacation and I picked this place to eat based upon recommendations here and at other ratings blogs.I was not disappointed! The chopped pork was moist and smoky, quite good. The brisket was way above average with a deep smoke flavor with good texture and juicyness. The sides were all good, service was prompt and... More
