“BBQ wasn't anything to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The BBQ we had was average, hush puppies were hard, but the mustard based sauce was very good for a change. Wouldn't want to make it a weekly happening. A bit pricey for what we got, service was decent, and the restaurant was clean.
I think much better BBQ could be had in Columbia.

“Good BBQ, great hash & rice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

As others have noted, the BBQ sauce/style is a mustard base. This style is local to SC & it's an acquired taste. I had the regular BBQ plate with hash & rice as my side, & really enjoyed it. The restaurant is very clean & very mom & pops style setup and service. The decor & atmosphere is set around SC University & I would definitely go back!

“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The food is decent for a local barbeque joint but defintely not the best in town. It takes forever to get your food and the customer service is lacking. In my opinion, the price is a little high for the quality of food offered.

“just not a fan of this style BBQ, give me some smoke”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I am from Georgia and not a fan of this style BBQ, do not taste any smoke and did not like the mustard base sauce. Sorry Just not for me. Taste more like roast pork.

“Good Southern cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Had to be in Columbia on business and this place was recommended. Went in and tried the BBQ chicken with mustard sauce-so tender it was falling off the bone, juicy and spicy. A delicious choice! We had terrific BBQ beans-very tasty, rice, and coleslaw. The restaurant is small but we see why it was pretty full. This was a great choice for lunch!
