Used to be great, but last few times food cold and service bad. Complained to manager and she made fun of us.

The pulled pork sandwich was DELICIOUS!!! All the food was great! The atmosphere is fun and love the huge tables where the whole family can sit comfortably with elbow room! Going back asap!

We stopped for pork shortly after they opened, and were informed they were out. How is a BBQ place out of pork shortly after opening? Prices were kind of high. What we got was decent but for most of us in our party our food...was dry and overcooked. Baked beans tasted like they’d just been poured from a can instead of smoked. Jalapeño cornbread muffins were tasty.More

We went to try the pulled pork and got there right when it opened but was told they were out of pork for the day. We tried a basket of jalapeño corn muffins. Light and delicious, with just a nice hint of jalapeño. The andouille...sausage has a good kick to it as far as spicy. Chicken leg and thigh very small and wasn’t hot. Ribs good. Garlic mashed potatoes was creamy and delicious. Baked beans were juicy, not overly thick, and had a great taste. Brisket good and tender. One thing that bothered us was upon being seated we heard the f word and the gd words coming from the kitchen. Did not think that was very good business. Sad because we heard it again during our meal.More

Our little day trip took us here for lunch, and we were not disappointed. My Mac n Cheese on pulled chicken sandwich was huge and tasty, enough for 2 meals! And it came with a side of applesauce! Our service was great, too. Everything was...clean, and Covid mandates were being followed. This was a very pleasant part of our day trip.More

We have eaten here many times. The food is good, but this was the worst service we have had. We went at 3ish to miss the crowds. There were 3 waitresses and maybe 8 tables. Our waitress could not seem to get it together. We...will go again but hope for better service.More

Wonderful fantastic food in such a little town. Would recommend to anyone. Wrap is the best. Clean place, friendly staff. Save room for the turtle cheesecake.

We enjoyed every crumb of our meal at this little gem of a restaurant. The meat was tender and seasoned just right and the jalapeno cornbread was a sweet/spicy surprise too! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good BBQ and the other incredible options. White...Chicken Chili is by far one of my favorites and I always top it off with a drop of sour cream!More

Very helpful staff! Lindsey was very accomodating on such short notice. I couldn't thank her enough for the quick response and assistance during such a difficult time.

If you are a BBQ connoisseur and find yourself within 50 miles of Converse, Indiana, you'd be missing out if you didn't get over to this place. They have a broad menu of BBQ and side fixins (and good craft beer!). Their food is genuinely...farm-table, raised by area farmers. And Lindsay and her staff know how to prepare it. Just outstanding food, reasonably priced and exceptional service. All around outstanding!More

I am not an expert on gluten but the chicken breast does not have any coating. It is smoked. They have salad. Green beans. I am sure even more is gluten free. Desserts - not gluten free. This is an awesome restaurant... More
