“So VERY disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We live in the area(not in the city) and have been wanting to try this place for some time due to the reviews. We were sadly disappointed. We figured they only way people could rate this place as really good is that they have not experienced other BBQ in Savannah. Let's start out with the good, the french fries were absolutely fantastic. First we ordered a couple of sandwiches which took 20 minutes of a wait. While waiting we noticed how dirty the place was, sheetrock hanging off the ceiling, old grease on everything and just plain dirty. Finally we get the food and it was SOGGY. So soggy I had to throw out my soaked bread. The sauces were not great either. People should try either the Smoking Pig in Pooler and RIchmond Hill or even the chain Sticky Fingers(south Side) blows this place away. On top of all this disappointment was that it was horribly expensive, the most expensive BBQ we've had in our 6 years in the Savannah area. We won't ever be coming back.

“Recommended and we weren't disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Savannah Dan suggested this and the BBQ was very good. Very small place. A little hard to find. When on Oglethorpe and Bull At with the Board of Education bldg on left and Presb Church on right, go down the alley to the left of the church. You will see the yellow awning of the restaurant. BBQ with 2 sides is $8 at time of post. Only 3 tables inside (very small) but you can take your food into the nearby square.

“Tasty + small!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This little hole in the wall place, tucked away in what seems to be an alley, is a nice little secret (despite all the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp).

Highly recommend the pulled pork.

They even have a vegetarian BBQ sandwich that someone in my group was excited to try.

Not a lot of room to move about. Consider taking it to a nearby square for a mini picnic!
