“An old standby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I was staying next door to the Woodlands& had to revisit. It had been years. The atmosphere is fun. The beer is cold. I don't eat meat so my choices were limited but I had a good time.

“Good food. Reasonable ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

I enjoyed my BBQ chicken dinner. It was only $10 with three sides and bread. The fried okra and the BBQ slaw was good. It isn't the best BBQ I have ever had but I don't like chains and this is a nice alternative.

“Ok But Not The Best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The service was good and the atmosphere was cute. The BBQ was ok but not the best. The beef was chopped as was the pork. The sweet tea was a bit weak and the BBQ slaw was mushy. The regular slaw and baked beans were good and the jalapeño cornbread was great!

“The WORST BBQ I have ever eaten.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Terrible, pathetically small baby back ribs, the worst Collard Greens I have ever had, and store bought slaw and baked beans. Had to ask the waitress to ask the kitchen staff to turn down the music they were blasting. Waitress gave good service, however. Don't waste your money here!

“Go somewhere else!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Had half rack baby back ribs with corn, beans, BBQ slaw and mild cornbread. Best part was the cornbread. Half rack must have come from a newborn piglet. Corn was like rubber. Will never eat here again - find a different BBQ place.
