“Doing it RIGHT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

First time here, traveling trough the area,
was hungry for some Que, really glad we stopped, line out the door at 3pm is a great sign, being a BBQ joint owner myself these
Folks are like I stated in the tittle, Doinig
It Right. The staff was very good, the Manager Steve was very knowledgable and
Enjoys what he does, passionate is a good
Description. The pork was flavorful, Brisket
Was moist with really good flavor. The sides
Are all good , the stuffed baked casorle was
Wicked good. Loin back ribs were also good
Really love the decor, whimsical
And Fun. I must admit if I decide to expand
My restaurant to add locations I would like
To have a person like Steve. Great Job.

“No Frills BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

i live in the upstate and have not been to happy with all the chain so called BBQ places around.
most do not take the care or time to make good BBQ anymore , just turn and burn style mass quantity, bad quality food. it is a crime to even call it BBQ. But I have found a few that still take the time to create good ol BBQ, and This is one of them, we stop in every time we are in the area , and the food is allways good. This is the BBQ done up like i remember, small building, friendly staff, only open a few days a week, but the best places are , would not trust a place that is open all the time . and when the food is gone time to shut down . the way it should be. you have to try this place if you really like and respect BBQ.

Best BBQ around. Be prepared for a crowd... This place definitely knows how to draw one! Have eaten there 5-6 times and the food is always great!

“Come for the Atmospher - Stay for the food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Based on Reviews I had to stop in. Opening are limited. This week was Thurs to Sat.
Very busy. Offered samples to new comers. I went for the pork plate. Meat comes out smoked and dry. You add your sauce at the table. Large choice of sides . Service very friendly considering they were busy with the large crowds. Lunchtime is a good time to visit.
