Perfect Holiday BBQ for our busy family holiday meal!

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 went here hoping to get some good down South BBQ, instead I received a beef brisket that was more like a Roast Beef sandwich with smoke flavoring and BBQ sauce. I have made a better Brisket at home. My girlfriend had a BBQ sandwich that was also subpar. This may be good for some folks but not for true... More

Hidden away from the beach is this great little BBQ place located in the Landstown shopping center. You will find this gem in the street with many restaurants located within the shopping center at the intersection of Princess Anne and Dam Neck. We were visiting in the area and hit this place for lunch. A threesome, we all had pork... More

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... 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.

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
