“Great bbq lunch spot in North Hills Shopping Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Portions were large and tasty. We shared a bbq chicken sandwich that came with 1 side and a smoked turkey plate that came with 2 sides. Yummy hush puppies come with everything. For sides, we chose fried okra (not greasy, but crisp and delicious), and collard greens. For a quick, delicious and satisfying lunch, this was great.

“I Like BBQ and this is Good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

This was undoubtedly some the tenderest brisket I have ever had. Great bark, great flavor. The sauce, eh! But, with good BBQ you shouldn't need sauce.

Brisket and sausage combo plate and I was completely satisfied. The flavors were good, portion size very good and the sides complimented the meat.

Top it off with a pleasant and very helpful service staff willing to make your experience one that will have you making plans to go back. I was before I left the restaurant.

“Loved it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

This place is great!! Tried it for the first time and loved it!! You get a lot of food for your money! And best part is you can decide what kind of BBQ sauce to put on your meat. There's the vinegar based and then the Chipotle BBQ sauce. You gotta try it!!

“Avoid it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

Went on a saturday. Food was made quickly but it taste weird bc of too much pepper or unusual flavors. Baked beans were cold and earthy flavor. Hush puppies was the best thing on the plate. Will not recommend.
