Just OK...nothing to write home about. Prices are high for small portions.

The food was good but this is not fantastic bbq. The brisket was too lean, I like a little fat on mine. They were out of ribs, which is what I really wanted to try.My son had the sausage and it was kind of dry and hard. The green beans and potato salad were good. The slices of bread are... read more

Brisket, ribs, jalapeño sausage all tender and full of flavor! Cole slaw was damn good. Had no room for the green beans but didn't need them. Great service friendly smiling staff. Would definitely go back. Parking lot was full for lunch but there is additional parking across the street.

This was hands down the best barbecue I have ever tasted. Maybe there is better BBQ, but I have yet to taste it. The gentleman at the carving station was very friendly and generous with the BBQ and the price was very good. In fact, after we ate I went back and got a couple of pounds to take with... More

These folks know how to do BBQ! This restaurant offers 'old school' 70's decor and the authentic, really good food, value, quality service provided by helpful,... More

The food was fantastic! The service was great! They took great care of us. When we we pulled into the parking there was only one or two other cars. We were worried that they were closed. Thank goodness they were open. I'm glad we didn't miss out!

Glad someone told me to go to the Barbeque place with the big pink pig out front. Coming from South Carolina, it did not dawn on me that pig would not be the main thing on the menu. Made it easy to make sure I was at the right place. Big establishment, but not many cars in the lot the... More

We hosted a family reunion at this venue. We used the restaurant's Patio Cantina. The owners were super helpful in the planning process - no hassle. The process ran very smoothly. The day of the event was flawless. The staff members tending to the event were extremely helpful. They were there for anything I needed. The food was delicious. We... More
