Not Soul Food

I wanted rib tips nope they didn't do them. Their sauce is terrible way to sweet. I threw my dinner away and went to another restaurant. Would not recommend this place at all.

Terrible. May as well hang it up. Meat was drenched in some kind of red sauce from a plastic bottle , barely any smoke flavor. Yuck..I think they put wood in the outside smoker just to get the smell going, not for the meat. Food was nasty. Service was great. Lied to the girl when she asked if we liked... More

Ate her once and won't be coming back. The meat was drenched in sauce and couldn't detect the fact that it was smoked. It was OK but I think there are better BBQ options out there.

Don't let the location throw you off. Park and go in and enjoy their brisket. I had the brisket (the real stuff not some roast like other states call it) sandwich and it's pretty good. Nice amount of meat on the sandwich and the bun held together with all the weight. The BBQ sauce is a bit sweet in my... More

The sandwich and sides were well prepared and very good. It has a really small environment that doesn't catch your eye and draw you in from the street but it is tasty food at a fair price.

My wife and I are from Santa Maria, California. We've been looking for a good barbeque place up here. Po-Boys ain't it and anyone who says it's even mediocre has never had good barbeque. It was so bad, I thought about offering to teach the cook how to make barbeque. They have the facilities, they have the outdoor grill...the potential... More

Absolutely the worst coleslaw you will ever not finish ... soupy milky vinegar mixture, not creamy at all. Big country style pork ribs, some moist meat, some dry. Beef ribs dry. Beans were pretty good. Ham was basic ham, nothing special. Potato salad was pretty good. Also, they microwave it to get it hot for you! If you've ever had... More
