The food is very good. The only reason for 4 imstead of 5 stars is the price is a little high for the portions. Overall, very good upscale BBQ.

Thanks, Laurden! Most of our menu items are made from fresh from scratch, so they cost us more to make than pre-made foods served at most restaurants. We think it's worth it!

It's a quiet little place and very nondescript, but the chopped pork BBQ is outstanding and the sides are delicious. The portions are a good size and the service is quick, too. We always end up taking a to-go box home when we dine in...More

This is our go-to place for reliably good barbeque. It isn't cheap, but it is always delicious, and the employees are friendly. I have never had a bad side dish here, either. The dining style is a little better than fast food, but still informal:...More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken and Beef Brisket. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
