Went there with some friends...the BBQ Ribs were great! The brisket was outstanding! The sides were homemade and delicious! Good food, relatively inexpensive...off the beaten path, but worth the trip! Not fancy, just plain good food.

Family owned small neighborhood restaurant. They have been around for a long time. Several years ago they donated pulled pork for a nonprofit fundraiser in NW Bradenton. There were about a dozen restaurants, including top Manatee Couny restaurants who also donated food. The most popular...More

Recently my wife and I moved to Parrish, Florida. We have tried this restaurant already 3 times in the first 2 weeks. I have had wings, ribs, and pork sandwich. The food and service were good!

We get takeout here often and always enjoy going there to pick it up and then eating it. You can always count on the quality being good, and the service being quick unless there is a line to order. Then it might take a little...More

Went there for ribs. Years ago the ribs were large, meaty and tender. Loved the place. But this time the ribs were much smaller. We were disappointed

We had them cater a wedding for us. We were told multiple times it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

I've had nearly everything on the menu and everything has been great. The ribs, chicken, brisket are all delicious; smoky but not dry. The homemade Carolina style BBQ sauce is awesome. The sides are good too! Hands down best BBQ I've had in the area!

Went there after a visit to the Rail Museum. There is nothing else around and we were so hungry. Glad we stopped there, food is delish and the place was very clean and the staff was very pleasant.

This restaurant is located in a brand new building complete with it's smoke house in the back. When we drove into the parking lot we were immediately lured inside by the warm sweet smell of smokey BBQ. I've eaten in many BBQ establishments and this one has some of the best ribs and chicken I have ever tried. I am looking forward to returing to try their pulled pork and the other side dishes like, coleslaw, baked beans and potato salad.
