Everything fresh BBQ

We had bbq pork, and ribs that were just excellently spiced and cooked. The three bean salad was fresh and just the right amount of tang in the taste- like it was just picked from the garden, too. Corn on the cob was good. Lots of choices, quick service, beers too. For a family style meal when... read more

The line was long therefore intimidating, but to our surprise we got through there in no time! The staff was super friendly and helpful as this was our first time there. The environment was inviting and fun. The food was excellent! It was recommended that I eat here from a co-worker here in Hobbs, NM and I'm so very glad... More

Excellent BBQ and the best creamed corn you will ever have. Baby back ribs are excellent. We also liked the Rudy's in Mesa AZ.

We had the baby back ribs and they were tender and just smokey enough. The house BBQ sauce was just sweet/smokey enough. Also had the old fashion banana pudding was just like Mom used to make.;-)

Read lot's of good reviews and don't really understand why. It's really set up for someone who wants to buy some cooked meat and take home. I went to dine in. Have to order everything ala-cart. 2 ribs cost $8. Needless to say overpriced. Nothing comes with sauce and the house sauce is just ok. Lot's of pepper. The brisket... More

Don't expect any fancy ambiance & kiss you butt service, but I make a point of getting their brisket & ribs around once a month. I approve of the sauce too. You won't go away hungry. Go ahead & indulge without regret. A bit noisy though.

Now serving breakfast! The meats are perfectly prepared, smoked and great sauces. The ribs are very very good as is the brisket. The service staff is great. Very busy during the lunch hour.

Meat and barbecue, need I say more? Well, make sure you grab some napkins! Smoked fresh from a wood fire smoker! Yummy!

Had the Baby back ribs and coleslaw. Ribs had a great flavor and I had the half rack which was enough for me. Wish they weren't so fatty. Coleslaw was fantastic. I want to go back and try some more from their menu. I will recommend a stop there!

Awesome brisket! Only issue was no soap in women's restroom when we got there, I told someone. I checked when we were leaving,still empty. Makes one wonder about the schedule on the door that showed it was checked every half hour. I sure hope the female workers had some place to wash their hands before handling food . eww
