We are staying in the area and see this place always busy, and we love BBQ so we thought we would give it a try. I do not see why this place is busy unless customers are here for the happy hour specials. We had the pulled pork sandwich and smoked turkey sandwich which had very little taste and was definitely below average. I also ordered the fried green tomatoes which sounded great but came out greasy. Drinks are served in mason jars which is kind of neat, but turned my stomach when a tiny piece of food was found in my coke. I gave 2 stars because we were able to sit outside in a new deck/porch area overlooking the water which was nice. This shows me once again it is worth the 30 minute drive to Destin to get better dining and restaurants. Obviously, we will not be back.
