The brisket... More

Nice view by the lake. The best cord bread and beef brisket we have ever had. The corn bread is very fluffy and light with crispy crust and honey. Bravo. The chicken thigh is also very good!

I'm always in search of a good BBQ place and this particular restaurant hits the mark! It's a down home style place with paper plates and plastic knives and forks but the food is where it's at. Real slow smoked ribs and plenty of pork dishes to try. I had the full rack of ribs which were really good and... More

Looks like a hole in the wall, but the food is superlative...moist and flavorful meat, fantastic sides. Place is immaculate and service is friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. Went there for lunch and the place rapidly filled with locals who know a good thing. Totally unpretentious with paper plates and plastic forks, Suzy's concentrates on the barbeque which is among the... More

Went here based on local newspaper review. The food is good/sauces and sides tasty and service friendly. Nice variety and specials too. On the down sideis Styrofoam dishes/no hot beverages and no credit cards accepted. the décor is dated and the place is old and could use some better lighting. Lots of takeout seen and near a busy industrial plant.... More

Though the bbq was only ok, it was the best I found in this area. The meat was moist and had some flavor. The sauce was not bad but not to rave about. The service was good and the sides were ok. The value however was very good. I would go back, especially vs. the competition in this area.

Good ribs and relaxed location. Just 15 minutes from the city center. This restaurant is one real american restaurant, out of the main touristic route.
