“Great smoked BBQ in a non-chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is a great hole in the wall BBQ restaurant that we go to over and over again. You WILL smell like BBQ smoke after eating here and that may be why the ceiling was painted brown. The BBQ is great and the best value is the Po-Boy which comes with sides. The Pepper poppers are great and different (basically a has brown with cheese and jalapenos). Don't forget to save room for the pecan cobbler. This place will not make your doctor happy but you won't go away hungry. Served in a home style atmosphere they will accommodate you any way they can as they are very friendly. Very homey and not fancy but a great value.

“Good BBQ Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I actually ate here a few times because my conference had it as a catering option but I also visited the place. The BBQ Beef was really good. The side dishes they offered were not so good. But I did really enjoy their beans and potato salad. Just wished they had some mac and cheese!!

“Mighty good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

The pecan bread pudding was amazing as were the ribs. This rocks. You should eat there unless atmosphere is more important than food to you.

“Great BBQ, Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a place the locals go! The place just smells great when you walk in the door. The meat is the attraction here! Everything is slow smoked and extremely tender. Generous portions, and with the combination plates, you can try several selections of meat with a large selection of sides.
Don't let the Cafeteria style service and simple location fool you. This place has some of the best BBQ I've ever had, and at a very good value!
