Nice family Restaurant

We got in late to Carlsbad and ended up at this BBQ restaurant. Although close to closong the staff was friendly and inviting. The service was attentive and efficient. Some favorites were the Ribs and the smoked Mac and Cheese. Would have like to try the Maple Chicken.

Had been recommended by someone, especially their cobbler. We stopped for dessert upon arriving in town and it didn't disappoint! Huge portion of cobbler and ice cream for less than $5, and both peach and apple were delicious! It's big enough to share. Hope to visit again to try the dinner items.

Great service, nice atmosphere, clean restaurant! We had lunch there and the menu offers a nice selection of meats and sides. The fruit cobblers were tempting but we were too full.

We always order out 'cause the place is always busy. Ordinarily, we get a pound of beef, pork and hot links (the best). Lately we have been getting the chef salad and a baked potato called "Knox" (I think). It has barbecue meat, bacon and other ingredients. Where they get so large a potato, I have no idea. But they...

My fiancé and I are from TX, so we were very reluctant to try a barbecue place in Carlsbad. This place ended up being very good. We were on a special diet, so we only ate the turkey, but it was very good. The server was nice and attentive, and the place was clean. The barbecue sauce was a little... More

Family BBQ place. Lots of collectibles around the log cabin style building. The food is not to my taste. BBQ was bland. Service was very good. Probably a good place for a town like Carlsbad though.

The kids LOVED this place. There's a bear crawling up the wall and tons of animal mounts to look at. The BBQ was extremely decent. The brisket was good, although a little fatty, the chicken was tasty and the kids catfish was gobbled up. The coleslaw was fresh and the beans were okay. A little salty. We enjoyed pecan pie...
