“I've had better BBQ in a Chinese joint.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Filthy. Loud, obnoxious music blaring. Unappetizing smells. Very greasy french fries. Avoid if possible.

“Big pie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Average BBQ. Lots of choices of BIG slices of pie. (Our group referred to it as "pie as big as your face", which isn't particularly classy, but is true.) Had the chocolate cream and it was above average. Wasn't crazy about the brisket, which was pretty dried out. Very nice waitstaff.
