If you looking at the decor you will not stop. But if you want a marvelous BBQ food experience, then you must make this your definite eating experience! The quantity of the food, particularly the sides, are huge and tasty.

This is a great value unpretentious rotisserie restaurant. Do not come here for the best food expecting but come for good value simple, wholesome meals. We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. When reading a few of the reviews here...More

It's been a while since I've had really good bbq and this place was so on point. I got there 3 meat combo with coleslaw and baked beans. The meat was tender, flavorful, and it makes you want more.

Fresh tasty BBQ ribs, chicken grilled on site, and tasty hamburgers! Sides--many options and large servings. Friendly and fast/good service. Not a franchise! I'd give it a 4 1/2 stars if I could--food and service is excellent, indoor environment is a little sparse, but they...More

I'm sorry, but I've eaten here a few times. When the chicken isn't dry, it's good. My problem with this place is that I felt ripped off the last time I was here. I ordered 1/4 chicken for me and a half chicken for my...More
