We had the smoked brisket and chicken platters and loved both. Be sure to get the banana pudding. Cute and humble atmosphere.

This is some of the worst BBQ I’ve had. The ribs were flavorless and bland with no smoky flavor at all. Mac and cheese was dry paste with no cheese flavor and the beans were just blah. Buck’s Smokehouse was so good. It’s a travesty...More

We had most items on the menu from smoked wings, ribs, baked beans, mac & cheese, corn bread plus a few banana puddings. All was consumed quickly as the food was great and really enjoyed the smoked wings. Closed on Mondays.

Just amazing BBQ with very friendly service. We really enjoyed this contrasting program with perfect food and extremely nice people. My only downside would be all the plastics instead of real tools and a plate. Not necessary and bad for nature.
