“Good Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Have tried BBQ in the US

This is as close as it gets up here,the St. Louis dry ribs are better than anything we have tried on both sides of the border, the brisket is not as strong as south of the border, but enjoy it

Coleslaw tastes like the best south

Sweet tea is nice touch

“Good brisket!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This restaurant is good!
I won't give them a bad rating becauce 80% of our meal was very good!
But the catfish was terrible, I hope they read this and replace it with halibut or cod or pickeral. It wasn't cooked bad, just a real terrible tasting fish. Also add a little more zip to your coleslaw and a lot more bbq flavor to your beans. If these were inproved on this place would be a real winner.

“Used to be good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

I used to love this place. It was small and cozy. Since they have expanded it looks more like a chain and not as favorable. The prices seem to have gone way up too.

“Only authentic BBQ in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We eat here several times a year. Once you try their ribs it's very hard to go back to steakhouse ribs. Smokin Okies cooks with smoke and heat from an authentic oven. I also live that I can get hushpuppies here!
