Pretty good ribs

Half a rack of baby back ribs are sort of small so order the full rack. Could use a few more sauces than the basic three. Friendly staff with courteous service. Sweet tea is good.

I've always grabbed to go from this place but I did notice there's a little area off from the restaurant that has a play area for kids with tables, so that's cool! I've had the chicken strips, fries, baked beans, corn cobettes, fried okra, beef brisket and bbq chicken from here and they've ALL been good! Even my dad and... More

Before we get to the bad stuff i will say the ribs are pretty good. Now that that's out of the way everything else on the menu sucks. The smoked meats look like sliced sandwich meats which were dry and tasteless so personally I'll never go back I can do way better at home

Visiting the area for business and a friend brought me for lunch. The ribs my friend got looked great. Meat was slow smoked on site. I got the Kicken Chicken sandwich, which was great. The selection of bbq sauces was awesome. Would definitely return. Atmosphere and wait staff were above average.

Such yummy food but the service is really poor. Isn't it strange to have a waitress tell a customer to "watch themselves", and "well that isn't smart". Yet we went back this evening, for another bad experience. At 630 on a Saturday evening they ran out of salads, strange? They said well we only have three salads and there were... More

The babyback ribs are some of the best I've ever eaten. They fall off the bone and have the most delightful smoky flavor. The coleslaw is creamy with fresh crispy cabbage. The French fries were piping hot, crispy and delicious. I will definitely dine here again.

We have been here a number of times. The Ribs or OK but overpriced with not much meat on the bone. The Baked Beans taste like they are from a Can, and the Corn on the Cobb is squishy watery from sitting in hot water too long, and no flavor. The Garlic Texas toast you can just throw away when...

Not really a fan of what is referred to as "BBQ Ribs" west of the Mississippi - but this one changed my mind. The BBQ sauce comes in 3 varieties (original sweet, spicey & extra kick). Better yet, it's served on pork, beef or chicken varieties. We arrived on a Thursday in July and the special was All You Can... More

I had lunch here on a Sunday. The restaurant was clean and well kept up. The staff were very friendly, and the service was excellent. These were the high points. The food was just average for BBQ. I had the rib lunch. It was described as a half rack of baby backs. It was more like a one third. They... More

Excellent rib and fries. The cold slaw was sweet and sour just like I like it. Food was hot and appetizers were as well and very tasty. I recommend the rack and 1/2. Best value for the buck.
