Busy but Good

It can be tough getting a seat in the evening and you may have to be aggressive to be sure you are noticed. The pulled-pork is excellent and I imagine the rest is great too. Don't be put off by informal seating and eating utensils and paper plates.

Nothing much to say except meat was average at best. Had to put up with flies while eating indoors. Roasted corn was very good. Would not eat there again.

My family had dinner here. We ate inside and it was a bit dirty (tables not cleaned off). Prices were pretty good but the food was just OK. Lots of fat in the pulled pork. Would not recommend.

Nice to sit outdoors and listen to the local band play country & western along with dinner. The BBQ was nothing outstanding but decent food at a reasonable price is not such a bad thing.

The food here was yummy! We ordered the sampler plate for lunch. There was more than enough food for two people to share! All of the meats were perfectly smoked. The beans had an authentic flavor and we're delicious as well. We chose potato salad over coleslaw. The potato salad was bought pre-made and want very good. There was one... More

We were there in the late afternoon after our Slot Canyon visit. At that time we had plenty of space, later in the evening the BBQ is full every evening. They offer smoked grill specialties. It was well cooked, although the food could have been little bit warmer. Try the BBY sauce.

Loud atmosphere, there was a band/singer. People were country dancing. We ate inside with air conditioning. They have alot of ice cream flavors in cones or cups.

Had lunch here and it was terrific. I had a big garden salad with pulled pork ($10.50) and my co-worker had a pulled pork sandwich ($7.00). Both were super tasty. You add BBQ sauce to your personal tastes to their smoked meats. I split my salad and had the leftovers for dinner since it was so big. They serve coke... More
