First time I went here, it was the heavenly smoky smell that drew me in. Sat in the car and ate ribs like a madwoman! Looks a little scary on the outside, and service is functional (okay, I admit it, I couldn't understand the questions the gal at the counter asked). But who cares. Just order the ribs and you'll...

This is one of my go to places for comfort food. Their bbq sauce is my all time favorite and you get smoky, tasty meat. Their portions are big and there are lots of options to pick from, even though they are a smaller place. One of my favorites places to grab a carry out meal after a long day... More

The smell of the meat smoking in the yard pulls you into this mouth watering food shack. It is a small place where you can eat in or take out. We ate in and ended up taking half with us as large portion sizes. The ribs, chicken and beans were great!

Just happened by, said give it a try, why not? Boy, am I glad I did. It has been many years since I have tasted bbq that reminds me of the excellent, non-franchise, bbq that used to be a common experience where I grew up in south Florida. This place is a gem: delicious, moist bbq, delightful homemade southern sides,... More

When I pulled up to this place it's exactly what I look for in a barbecue restaurant. Old, small, building with a giant smoker in the back that you can smell for blocks. Right away my expectations were very high. I've been here several times since. I have determined that the smoked wings are probably the best thing on the... More

When its fresh its amazing. Nothing amazing going on lately. The pulled pork has always been one of our favorites here but lately they have apparently been re-hydrating it because its mushy like baby food. If you want to give them try I would ask to see a sample before you order. I have face book messaged them and talked... More

I eat here pretty often and love their food. Pulled pork is my favorite but i have not been disappointed by anything on the menu. The portions are always big enough that i can't finish them. The bbq sauce is excellent. Definitely the best bbq place in town.

I have wanted to try this "shack" for a long time. Finally, we ordered a meal for the family there two weeks ago. It was delicious. The ribs were superb. The pork, which was pulled, was fantastic. We liked the potato salad and coleslaw as well. I recommend that you take out. The atmosphere inside is not really conducive to... More
