This is some of the blandest, toughest barbeque I have ever had. Sides were also very boring. I would not recommend to anyone.

Excellent pulled pork and amazing veggie sandwich. The greens and coleslaw are to die for! Very nice family running the place. Thank you so much for serving a veggie sandwich that is jut as amazing and thoughtfully prepared as the meat!

I loved this restaurant. Genuine Memphis-style BBQ with tasty brisket, ribs and pulled pork, with or without the slaw. The baked beans were outstanding as was the side of pickled jalapenos and carrots. I would eat here again anytime... Tichiganblues
