All reviews brisket mac and cheese fries beans wings bread baby back ribs salad great bbq great southern food bloody mary just the right amount side dishes sat at the bar fun atmosphere happy hour louisiana
We got in right at opening. We both ordered a half rack of ribs. You get a lot of food, but during this visit the ribs didn't fall off the bone like they did before. Our server was great, but it was not a great...experience this time :(More
Food was excellent, but little heavy for us. However, it could be great for dinner time! I ordered catfish burger, it was great, different from any fish burger with slightly different seasoning as southern spice.
The baby back ribs were very good with a lot of meat but a little too much fat. The mac and cheese is amazing. The cheddar cornbread was underwhelming and the baked beans were not good in my opinion, we too much of a vinegar...taste and I love vinegar.
This was food to go and the service was also underwhelming. I got to see inside the place while placing my order and the tables looked uncomfortable. If I was staying in Oceanside I would get the ribs and mac and cheese again but certainly would not eat in the restaurant the future when it is safe to to so. Poor customer service.More
We stumbled upon this place because the brew pub we had planned to go to was closed. We kept walking and as we approached Miss Kim's we smelled the barbecue and heard the great music. Done - here's where we're eating tonight. We all had...the brisket which was outstanding and all our sides were great (beans, greens and Mac 'n cheese.)More
We ordered Brisket and Pulled Pork Sandwiches, the meat was excellent. Great flavor, good sauce as well. We all had mac and cheese as sides, it was a little thick but ok taste, not my favorite. Fries were very good!
The baby back ribs were delicious! The cole slaw and fries were yummy. The beans and corn bread were different than expected but still tasted pretty good. I would definitely return for the ribs. Take out was ready on time with friendly service.
Hands down the best BBQ I’ve ever had. The meat literally melted in my mouth. The sauce was just the right amount spicy and sweet, savory flavor without overdoing it. The coleslaw was fresh and crispy with a light creamy sauce that was perfectly salted...and not gooey or overly sweet. The Mac had a surprising kick to it, but again, just the right amount of heat. And holy cow, my spicy light and fresh Bloody Mary came with a delicious perfectly smoked rib on the flag. Fun atmosphere, great food, great service, all in all a fabulous date night!More
Busy on a Saturday evening, but got a nice table after a short wait. Arrived just before 6:00, so could take advantage of happy hour drink deals. Food was excellent, generous sized half rack was tender and smoky. Brisket sandwich had loads of tasty,tender beef...on a griddled bun. Side dishes , slaw, beans and salad all very good. Fun, lively atmosphere, prompt service. TBG is a must do for us when we visit Oceanside.More
