Sweet Cheeks is a casual BBQ spot with great sauce and yummy food. The place is packed and service is slow. Ambience is family friendly and bright. Picnic tables and all. Sides were not very impressive.

We finally tried Sweet Cheeks and we were pleasantly surprised by the food quality. We are very picky about restaurants (which is a curse because we are constantly disappointed), but we loved our food and experience. Our waiter, Mac, was exceptional. He was obviously very proud of the food quality and we were very impressed with his knowledge of the... More

Sweet Cheeks has all the traditional smoked meats with super sides. The pulled pork and chicken were very flavorful and the briscuit was excellent. The sides such as the best grits I've encountered, and Mac and cheese, as well as a delightful rice and broccoli were superb. Black beans and the best cole slaw made with purple cabbage highlighted this... More

Tiffany Faison’s restaurant is everything a barbeque joint should be – loud, fun, funky. The only reservation we could get was for 6:00 on a Saturday night, and the place was packed. (The website says they hold tables open for walk-ins, but the night we were there, the wait for those without reservations was an hour and a half.) The... More

Food was pretty good but not great. Brisket was less than pretty good. Prices were very high for the quality. Service was pretty poor. Too many workers joking around with each other and not paying attention to their tables. Everyone was nice but not focused. Pretty good food + poor service + high prices = not likely to return.

Have not stepped foot in this place at all. I ordered a pie for Community Servings and there are over 30 bakeries who participate in the charity event for homebound individuals. I had local kids go door to door for a fund raiser for pies to be delivered to our town the day before thanksgiving. They hit my door and... More

I don't know what they are doing back there in that kitchen to make these biscuits just so darn good, but I want to go back just for them! The pulled pork sausage was also delicious! The fried green tomatoes, cheese grits, and hush puppies were just okay though. Nah, not even. We didn't even eat them, so I guess... More

I like the fact it was clean and had dining tables to sit at. The breakfast menu was limited but they had what we wanted. Good coffee! Directly across a Dunkin Doughnuts that I walked in and walked back out of which was dirty and has questionable clientel

Was so excited to visit this place. Must say I was a bit disappointed. Food was ok. Biscuits and drinks were amazing. Would I go back probably not.

If you are interested in a tasty treat in the city, stop by this BBQ joint for one of the tasty sandwiches. The options are great as you can "trick out" your pork with the fixin' of your choice. Don't be shy. The only suggestion I have for the spot at this time . . . . beverage/soda prices ????... More
