I have been to just about every top Barbq place in the country and for me their pulled pork is the best I have had. Smoked chicken thighs are also top notch. Ribs are not bad. Piggie pie is out of this world, you have to top it with cole slaw to get the full effect.

First off, call early (like around noon) to place your order for pickup for dinner, or place it the day before. Once they are out of something, they are out. Second, Sue seems like a top notch lady, and she knows her stuff. My husband and I shared brisket, ribs, and chicken thighs. Everything was great - if you like... More

We went with 2 adults and 3 small children. I called ahead since it was close to closing time and I wanted to be sure they still had food! When we arrived, Suzy had a table all set up waiting for us. She couldn't have been nicer, explaining the different menu options and taking her time to be sure we... More

Our party all had ribs. They were delicious!! They offer their homemade sauce. Owner explains each of the three sauces. Sides to choose from as well. Very down to earth place, nothing fancy. Pricing I thought was a bit high, but ribs were outstanding. $24 for a full rack. One can order smaller portions. The building could use some updating... 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
