“Better than Jim N Nicks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

So much better, by far! Prices, better options, far less salty flavor, and better service. They've got it all over that place.

“Smoke with a touch of Jennifer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Have been here about a dozen times now and must say the food and atmosphere has always been excellent. Had many of the prize dishes, Ribs, brisket, chicken, wings, and a few sandwiches. Last visit (yesterday) had Jennifer for the first time. Pleasant, bubbly, friendly girl who made the trip from Savannah all worth the drive. Will go back of course.

“The best BBQ on the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We have been coming here since they were down on Coligny circle and they have just gotten better. The food is always hot, juicy and plentiful. The ribs, pulled pork sandwich and all of the sides are excellent. I always want to try the bbq chicken, but can never get past the ribs or pulled pork. One of the best BBQ restaurants I have ever been to. The parking is not great, but if you get here early, there is no problem and the service is average at best. But the food makes up for it.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

My wife and I eat here often- good BBQ, clean restaurant, good prices. If you haven't been since they moved from down the street a couple of years ago you need to go back.
