Bbq tasted like lighter fluid. Overrated. Not sure what hypes all about. Crowded. Had to sit outside. No waitstaff. Got to retrieve own drinks.

The pork ribs are as good as I have ever had and they are very reliable in quality. Well worth a try

Friends of ours suggested this place and it turned out to be an excellent pick. We showed up around 8 p.m. on a Saturday night at the line filed out to the door. The woman taking orders periodically yelled out with updates on items that were no longer available. Although I didn't have a chance to try their ribs, the... More

Best brisket ever. I stop at BBQ restaurants all over the country and this hole in the wall is by far the best. I had to go back a second time it was so good. Price reasonable. Portions are reasonable. Good luck finding it. A bit out of the way.

This small meat joint is a few miles out of New Orleans. Six large tables and three small tables is all there is. It is rustic and the menu is barbecue meats with four sides to choose from. We had the pork ribs ( to die for), beef brisket (great) and the sausage (spicy and great). A bar for drinks... More

Our California family can never resist the opportunity to eat good BBQ while traveling in the South. This fun little place did not disappoint! Our group of six enjoyed our yummy meal on the outdoor patio.

The location may not be in the best area and the appearance may not impress but the bbq is well worth taking a chance. The pulled pork is some of the best in the south. The mac and cheese with a kick is amazing. The staff was helpful and friendly and made for a memorable experience. Next time in New... More

We went for a late dinner around 8:00 PM. i don't know if it was the end of the day, but I had a lot of fat in the meat. Sausage wasn't so bad, but the brisket and ribs were not that tasty. Let's just say it's a pale copy of texas BBQ. Not sure if i want to recommend.... More
