“terrific barbecue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I've lived in Columbia for 40 years, and this is the best, most consistent barbecue I've enjoyed here. Made fresh daily, it's never refrigerated and rewarmed--the undoing of other bbq joints in this town. The ribs are the best: deep smoke flavor, moist, and meaty. I have also enjoyed the pork, chicken, and turkey. Slaw and amazing okra are the best sides. Casual atmosphere and reasonable prices keep us coming back again and again.

“Great food, atmosphere, and service staff is usually great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

It's a chain, but it's based in Missouri and amazing! If you get the family meals the price is a steal.

Very good BBQ with lots of choices in sause. Chicago, KC, Carolina, etc. Some of the meats they have are better than others, but overall it is a very good place.
