“Craving Bar B Que? Stop Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a great little place with lots of atmosphere and fine Bar B Que food. With blues music playing, and the scent of Bar B Que drifting through the dining room, you might think you are somewhere in the south. We've eaten various items, gumbo soups, pulled pork, brisket, and chicken. All have been very good. With a dining room away from the bar area, this is also a restaurant you can take the kids. Prices are reasonable and as are the portions. When we want Bar B Que this is where we land.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This as recently became one of my favorite places to dine. Don't let the look of the place fool you. Its a gem! Everything I have tried there is wonderful. From the wings, bbq, chicken, ribs and even the catfish with crawfish. Great Authentic Louisiana Food! Thank You Grumpy's!

“Well worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Looked like a dive bar when we drove up. Best bar b que I ever had. Everything was smoked perfect, ribs just fell off the bones. Waited about 45 minutes to get a table but was well worth it.

“Not what it is cracked up to be!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

High priced food. Burgers over cooked, pork ribs fatty and not much meat. Provided with a butter knife to eat them, but needed a sharp steak knife instead. Reviews suggested that this place should have been outstanding. Not!
