I had a very nice lunch salad today. It was the Piggie in the Garden. The service was good and my meal was ready almost immediately.

Bring an appetite and some friends. The bar-b-q is great and plentiful and the staff friendly. Call ahead and they can accommodate fairly large groups.

The catfish at Jim 'n Nick's is absolutely the best I have ever eaten. We eat there at least twice a month and we love going for both lunch and dinner. They have great wait staff.

That's right, the dreaded 'but'.... Went here in the evening with a group of friends to eat. I had been here before and was pleased with the food so suggested it to the group. Took us about 30 minutes to get a table, but not a big deal, we were a large group. Understandable. Our service was great. The waitress... More

I was really impressed with my meal. I would have liked to have ate in the restaurant, but I only had time for carry out. I got the beef brisket and my friend had the baby back ribs. Both meals were good and we all loved the sides. Their pies are also delicious.

Close to the Mariott Cortyard, I eat ther 3 time that week. The place is noting fancy to look at but the BBQ is really good, and the staff is nice. I highly recommend the Briskets and the Slaw.

We went before the lunch crowd. Seated,drinks served quickly.our server was friendly and took our order quickly. But the muffins came late and our food took an hour to come out even asking 3 different people about it. Pork plates and sandwiches don't take a n hour to prepare.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge barbecue fan. I can enjoy it or pass. But my friends love to eat here and I admit they make me try some of what they order. The baby back ribs are excellent, the pulled pork is tasty and the sauce is ok. I always get the ribeye, not... More
