Average BBQ, sauce needs work...

I had heard a lot about here, and my expectations were set for really GOOD BBQ. I was met with OK BBQ. The ribs were overdone. I like to grab a rib and have the meat still stick to the bone for me to pick it up. I hate using a fork to eat ribs... The "Rib Sauce" needs to... read more

All im going to say is I'd rather eat US NAVY ship food with no hot sauce. They should be embarrassed to call them selves a BBQ restaurant.

I haven't eaten here in over a year and all I can say is "what happen?" !!!! The food wasn't up to the normal standard. I ordered mac & cheese and when I got my food it was fries instead. The beans are super sweet now. I asked for sauce to go since the family meal was to go and... More

Great tasting pulled pork. Very flavorful. Hushpuppies and french fries were cooked to perfection and the baked beans were excellent. Generous portions, fast service, reasonable prices and a clean dining area make this place the best in the area. I highly recommend this place if you love good BBQ. We will be back.

BBQ beef, pork, and chicken. Lunch for under $10, and you won't walk away hungry. The meat is cooked right. Flavor is in a variety of bottles on the table, not the sandwich itself. Plates come with your choice of sides.

We picked up BBQ & cole slaw for our Christmas Eve dinner and it was awesome! Fresh, not greasy at all and delicious! I think we just found a new fav BBQ!

I have been a customer since they were on Baxter Road. The BBQ use to be the best around. Went there on 6/1/2013 for a pint of heated pork BBQ and a side of slaw. When I got home and put the BBQ on a bun with the slaw and served the dinner I was asked if they just put... More

One of my favs. Pros: The best ribs anywhere. Nice staff. Beautifully decorated. Cons: A bit expensive, but hey! It is worth it!

I must have got there at just the right time. it was half full when I got there and by the time I left, it was packed, just one empty table left. I had the BBQ pork sandwich with cole slaw and a side of fries, upsized to large and I didn't think I was going to be able to... More

Our BBQ group went to check it out and we sampled BBQ pork, BBQ beef, and the ribs. All the meat was bland. There was no hint of smoke and detected no spice rub flavor at all. The rib sauce was overly sweet. The baked beans were also too sweet. We shall not return.
