I had purchased a coupon so I thought i would check it out. Prices were reasonable. Food was okay. I had a huge order, tried multiple things. It was ready in less than 15 minutes. Got it to go.

The people were friendly and sociable, but the food is lacking. I was severely disappointed in the lack of BBQ, since it sports itself as a BBQ joint. It seems like it's store-bought walmart food filled with preservatives. Disappointed in the quality of the food. But it still tasted decent. I haven't ate there for a year now so maybe... More

Saturday 5.30pm and one poor new guy on serving and cooking by himself! He was polite and did his best. Needless to say, the wait was long, the sides weren't delivered as per menu. Bathrooms need so much renovation it's borderline health and safety problem. It was like backwoods Florida, which you can almost expect! Sorry Old Smokey... Fix it... More

The service was marginally acceptable, happening only when they passed by to help another table. The dishes did not appear fresh, but microwave touched up. Taste was good but meat quality suffered. Atmosphere was picnic chic. We were disappointed, but had no expectations. Now......we'll pass.

Ok, so this is a really minimalistic atmosphere, but WOW simple home made BBQ! The pulled pork is outstanding, and the Tues. 'All you can eat' Rib Tips are phenomenal. We come here every month on business so it's a local treat.

This is a different method of BarBQue. it is pressure smoked. I like it my wife, not so much. The value is great. The sweet tea is outstanding. Food was fresh. Good service. A little crowded and cluttered but it is locally owned and operated. Evenings are a little less crowded.

Ate at this charming looking diner type place. Very small on the inside but quite crowded. Plenty to choose from, including some specials. Being from Chicago area, we know BBQ!! I took a long time from the time we placed our order to the time it was served. The pulled pork was average but the Ribs were disappointing. The homemade... More

Love their food. The place could use some updating but food is really good! Our daughter loves to go here and we love it because we don't have to worry about whether or not it is kid friendly. Owner is great!!!
