“Loves it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I know Bbq and this is good bbq! My husband's coworker told us about this place in 2008 and we've been coming every since. My favorite meal was the rib tips and catfish. I was very disappointed when they took the catfish off the menu. We had even stop going here for a few months. I LOVE good food and I was upset about this but I got over it and went on back ;). Now I love the Pineapple habanero wings and rib tips.

“Different sauces for different tastes..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

Good atmosphere and good sauces. Plenty of bbq choices but not anything like what you get down south. The service is good-- the food is salty.

A little better than you would expect from a BBQ chain. Service was prompt and friendly.
