Nice place for slow-cooked BBQ - they have a pit in the middle of the restaurant. However, heir food is way too greasy, even for a BBQ place

Also a good bet for some barbecue for the family. Eat in or take out, both are good! Ribs are delicious.

There can be lines waiting for a table but treat yourself to a night out during the early part of the week when the service is at its best, the noise level is lower and the food is still DELICIOUS! The burgers are yummy, the ribs are just what you came for, and the extras will tempt you but what's... More

The BBQ is fantastic, and the portions, well to say the least you will not leave hungry! The weekends are very popular so the wait can be a little excessive. Our server was very good but there were some that appeared to be a little less attentive. Overall this is an excellent place to dine!!!

We come here when we're in the mood for plates of meat for dinner (and then breakfast and lunch the next day). The BBQ is good and messy. We usually get a 3 combo plate with beef ribs, pork ribs, and shrimp and then a pulled pork sandwich or fajitas. Although for two people, you can just get one order... More

Service is adequate but not great. Food is tasty but sandwiches are a better buy than entrees. If you like beans, they provide an endless supply at no additional cost. Great place to go for a neighborhood meal but not worth a long trip. The venue is clean and pleasant.

Great BBQ but be prepared to wait on a weekend for a table. Solid ribs, chicken and sausages with a variety of beers on tap.Corn bread is among the better in the area

This is a sweet local restaurant that I sometimes go to. The food is average but it's a fun atmosphere and has a good spirit.

Absolutely LOVE this place! The food is delicious and plentiful. Everyone from the owner to the bartenders and wait staff is friendly and accommodating. We started coming here when our kids were small - and can't wait to take our grandkids here (quite family friendly)!
