We eat here often. The guys who take the orders and serve the food are always friendly and helpful. It's not the best BBQ I've ever had, but we always enjoy it. Sometimes they run out of our favorites for the day, like chicken or brisket, so that can be disappointing. The remedy is to just go early and save... More

Never had a iffy item. Great BBQ. I've tried it all, Turkey, Rib Tips, Ribs, and BBQ. Wish the dinning room was larger, this makes me do take out a lot. Side dishes are all very good too.

Simply good barbeque. If you are looking for good barbeque this is the place. If you need to be pampered, go somewhere else. No fancy restaurant, no fancy service, no fancy tables. Paper towels on a roll for napkins. Self service - order at the counter and get your own drinks and condiments. Courteous service with the patience to explain... More

We all liked everything we ordered. It was really good BBQ, not the best but really good. The ribs were full of flavor & cooked correctly. The fried pecan pie was an original. I'm glad we stopped on our way through.

Better get here early or you either won't get a seat, or they will run out of food! This place is nothing fancy, limited seating, but worth the time to wait if you have to! Great food, great price!!! They have several sauces to chose from and some are so good that after many, many visits we still can't decide... More

We have gone to this restaurant many times. The food has always been top notch, and the service friendly. Our favorite carry out is their fried pickles. They are highly recommended by our family.

Got the brisket sandwich and it was very tender. Unfortunately, it didn't really taste like it had been smoked more like oven roasted. Fries were good. Pulled pork was acceptable. Good food for the price for sure, but far from great BBQ. I admit we didn't try the ribs, and they looked really good.
