“Great pulled pork.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The pulled pork platter, with two side dishes, is enough for we two seniors to share. Very nice smoked meat flavor not smothered in a tomato based barbecue sauce. There are three sauces available, but none are really needed. The pepper vinegar sauce, lightly used however, is very good.
When we are headed home, and passing this location, we take a few one pound frozen packages home in an ice chest. It's worth the effort.

“Saved money on decor...invested it in the food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

May not be a great place to look at, but who cares?! The bbq ham is fantastic! The stuffed potatoes are my favorite and the bbq with two sides is the best bargain in town ($6.00)!

This is a great bbq joint. The last time we had pulled pork and ribs. Both were excellent and the baked potatoes are huge.Friendly service and before I could pay,our food was ready. We try to make this our stop going from Illinois to Florida.
