“Good Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

My daughter, grandson, and I had a late lunch here, and we were very happy with the food, service, and price. The waitress was very friendly, other wait staff stopped by to check on us too.
I will return here often!

“Smoke in your eyes and on your food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

There are better bar-b-que places in Florida.

This one seems to get smoke, grease and fat everywhere.

I could not wait to get out of this place.

“Average Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Have read all about these bar b q places, and knew exactly what i wanted, unforunately the menu was very restricted, if very competitively priced. Would have to search out a better place to get the item i wanted (steak tips).
