“Friendly place, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a great potato loaded with spicy BBQ beans, beef brisket and coleslaw. The cornbread was more cake like than I prefer it, but everyone else at the table loved it. The service was friendly and quick. I ordered carryout to take home to the family for dinner and it was ready when I was. Parking can be a problem, but that just shows how good the place it.

“Spicy and dry”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I can't say that I agree with most reviews on this place. The decor is nice for a BBQ place, but the food was disappointing. Sorry, but it's not enough that the cornbread is good. The ribs were too dry and too spicy. Their sausage was too spicy and looked strange. The pulled pork was decent but a little dry and the portion was small.

“Maybe expectations were too high”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Came here with friends, found portions to be generous and service was good but.... We as a family considered this to just be average. Tried beef and pork ribs, and every side they offered. Good sweet potato fries, but surprised they did not offer plain ol fries. Nothing wrong per se, just nothing amazing compared to some of the bbq we have had in other locations (like kansas city....) Maybe if you have only had local bbq then this establishment is great.

We wont be rushing back. Will go if friends want to go, but will probably not be going on just our own choice. Parking can be tough.

“Brisket and a beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The location is tough for parking. walk in, seat yourself and grab some of the free cornbread appetizer, which is almost like corn pudding it is so rich. They have a great selection of beer (and other drinks) and the brisket sandwich and pulled pork sandwiches are great. Top quality BBQ. Downsides: I thought the ribs were a little tough and the seating and tables are cheap and sort of uncomfortable. In sum, well worth the visit, would be five stars if it had a better interior and seating (but of course that is not why you seek good BBQ), better / more accessible parking, and outdoor seating not on the very car traffic road (or some plants as a barrier), and the ribs were better. But heck, as of today, best BBQ in the town limits.
