“Don't let looks fool you or you will miss an awesome experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We found this restaurant on the web and drove ~1/2 hour out of the way to try it out. When we drove up we thought we had made a big mistake. It is a small place with limited counter seating, not "dressy" at all. We gave it a go and LOVED IT!! Great food and lots of it! One of the best features are the people, especially Scott - the co-owner and cook extraordinaire. They treat you like you are sitting in their home kitchen. Lively conversation was served with the tasty food, making for a great experience. Will definitely be back next time we are in town!!

“Big Bad Chicken Sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

This lil piggy was introduced to BBW from Hubs. He was given gift certificates and wasn't putting them to use. Well made good use of them and ordered on separate occassions, the chicken sandwich, the brisket and another chicken sandwich.

The food was surprinsingly good. The chicken wasn't overdone and dry. The family meal was affordable with average sides. Jumbo half/half was awesome but that's just because you can never foul up lemonade and iced tea. They just know how to join hands and be delicious together.

I don't know if I would try anything else besides the chicken sandwich..WOM is the old bay wings are worth trying. We'll see.

“Order ahead, carry out, enjoy a little pork product heaven at home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

I have "investigated" barbecue across the country and these guys do it right. Your best deal is to order a "family combo" that includes two full racks of ribs, a very large side of their hand-cut amazing fries, your choice of large side, cornbread, AND dessert. I recommend the mac and cheese... also the baked beans and the cole slaw. Ribs are the right balance of slow-cooked smokiness and tenderness but still hold to the bone just right. You can request a sampling of their sauces to decide on a favorite-- from sweet and slightly spicy to full on heat. Be sure to stop at one of the beer stores along Harford Road to claim a six pack of local brew. You can't beat a little Resurrection Ale alongside a plate of this goodness!

“Great BBQ, but $$$”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

The barbecue chicken, Kansas City Spicy is delsih. The homeade fries are tasty and the mac and cheese is decadent. Greens are good too, so my wife says. The ribs are tasty, but tend to be overcooked often as of late. The pulled pork is good, but usually dry as is the pit beef and brisket sometimes. Been going there for years, so you know.

Prices are high, though. For example, combo dinner which includes one rack ribs, one chicken, large fries, choice of one large side and 4 pieces of cornbread is $40.00. I think its high, but a nice treat now and then. No parking really, either. Best bet is get a ride so someone can stay with car and not get ticketed.

Good BBQ, just pricey.
