Stopped here looking for bbq, went inside and looked at the menu and quickly left. When paying you can see right in the kitchen that doesn't look that clean either. Quality food should not be that cheap. Enless they buy it from the save a lot in the same parking lot. Service was great, the short time we were there.... More

First time coming here, and will DEFINITELY BE back. Had no idea they even served breakfast, thought it was jus a BBQ place. But I was recommended the Biscuits &Gravy, and boy was I glad I was. Hasbrowns & bacon are also cooked the way I like them, CRISPY.

Stopped for quick dinner while travelling and we ordered the BBQ chicken and the half plate of sausage and dirty rice. Chicken was good but was expecting pulled chicken, not hunks with BBQ sauce on it! Sauce was tangy and the dirty rice was spicy. Coleslaw was excellent. Didn't order desserts. Good stop for a meal and assume it's a... More

First, I made the mistake of not ordering my ribs/pulled pork dry. Way too much sauce, and not even a good sauce, was poured all over I couldn't tell you if the ribs or pulled pork were good or not. A good bbq shouldn't need sauce, the flavor of the smoke should shine through and sauce is a condiment. The... More

Tried this really hoping for great BBQ. My husband had the ribs and I had the brisket. Both were dry an awful. The sides were not good, and even the corn bread was not nice at all and I usually love cornbread. Will not go again, can not recommend. The server was pleasant, but it can't fix the food. Wish...

A group of us went and it was ok. I had the pulled pork on a bun that was good, sauce had a good flavor. My husband had the rice, chicken, pineapple dish and it was horrible. The few pieces of chicken in there had NO flavor. After he took a bite of it he said that it left a... More

Pros: Service was excellent Friendly atmosphere No waiting for a dinner table Seemed to be mostly return customers, staff seemed to know most people Cons: They claim to be a smokehouse and BBQ and we thought we saw a smoker going. We were really hoping to order a chicken from the smoker, but it was only avail one day of... More

The locals seem to love this place and the ribs and pulled pork were good, but the sides were terrible and the owners need to fix the place up - upholstery on chairs and booths ripped up and the ceiling tiles were disgusting. We will check out somewhere else next time we're that way.
