We had dinner here last month. The food is displayed at the counter where orders are placed, so you see what you are getting. What you don't see is how little you are getting. The store is clean and well-appointed.. The food is good but on my "two meat" dinner of ribs and sausage I was amazed at the skimpy... More

I love the log cabin-like atmosphere. The food is tasty, but the meats tend to be more dry than I like. The BBQ sauces are available on the tables, so that helped. The lunch specials are under $7.00

My husband ordered half slab of pork ribs, and I got a sirloin tip sandwich. I was a little disappointed in my sandwich because the meat was sightly tough to eat in a sandwich. I just took the sandwich apart and used a knife and fork to eat the meat. The pork ribs were WONDERFUL!!!!. We took an order of... More

Ate here before, about a year ago, and oh my gawd! The food is still amazing! The service is equally amazing. Fast and friendly. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family. Sadly, they all love in Georgia and maybe never be as lucky, no blessed, as me to sample this amazing barbecue.

Although the small town of Alamagordo does not have a ton of restaurant options, this place simple place was great. I got to sample different types of meat before ordering. The food was delicious and the customer service was excellent. I would definitely go back!

We placed our order and were promptly served! The missus chose the sausage and brisket -there was very little smokiness and was just 'ok'! I had the half rack of ribs and honestly, I've had better at Famous Dave's! We took the food to the outside dining area where the BBQ sauces were in bowls with melted ice and flies..... More

I hate here twice when I was in Alamogordo and it was really good both times. The first time I had the smoked sausage with mac and cheese and potato salad. The smoked sausage and potatos were really good but the mac and cheese was only okay. The second time I had the brisket sandwich and the brisket was awesome.... More

I was very impressed with the quality of their smoked meats. The selection is the best and is much much better than the national chain restaurants. The brisket was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and the pineapple coleslaw was great. The quality and quantity was perfect.
