“Famous Dump”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We love BBQ but this place was gross. The sides were clearly from a can. The chicken was so overcooked it was practically burned. We went for a family member's birthday party. They informed us that company rules dictate no singing of happy birthday. Fine. Whatever. That was the icing on the cake- with no singing- at this famous dump.

“Fabulous ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Get the full rack of baby racks, add a couple of extra sides and split it. Plenty of food and it all tastes great. Friendly staff.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We ordered the meal that feeds 2-3. It was more than enough for 3 adults. A large variety. We had the pork, it also included chicken. Everything was good! The service was excellent and the price was reasonable.

“Love this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Reasonable prices. Good barbecue, especially earlier in the day. Excellent early bird specials for under $10. Free dessert next visit if you fill out an online/phone survey.
