Order at the counter. We had a burger (double meat) and a chicken sandwich. The chicken was good and the burger had real handmade patty. Nice and juicy. I would stop again.

The chicken is the best, pulled pork is pretty good, the beef is often fatty. Sides are OK. Cookies are great! Service is always good. Prices are comparable to other BBQ spots.

This place is great if you like smoked meat. I do not, but we visited because my husband does. The fried pickles were super greasy. When you want to order you have to pick up the phone at the table in the wall to place it. The food is a bit expensive. We had to wait a while to be... More

If you are a BBQ person this is the place to be! Penguin Eds does everything right from the Mac and cheese to the ribs to baked beans! Fun atmosphere too - telephones at each table to call in your order!

We went to the original location on Hwy 71B. We were very pleased with our meal. The food was very good, but my wife did have several pieces that were very hard as they were part of the outside of the smoked meat. Sides were good, two choices of a sauce and very good service. First visit, but would certainly... More
