Love the smell of the meat on the smoker from the moment you approach the restaurant. All meat is served without the sauce so you can add as much as you like. Lots of great selections for sides. Order up a family pack to take home or dine in the great atmosphere. Outstanding staff.

I am not a big meat eater, but I had the pulled pork lunch plate today and it was amazing. Very juicy and delicious. Definitely the best BBQ restaurant in Houma. Make sure to stop if you are in town.

I stopped here to get a to-go plate of BBQ during the Voice of the Wetlands Festival in Houma. The offerings are standard fare and the plates are limited to certain choices. I had ribs, the upgrade was for babyback if memory serves me correct. It was wonderful, and I would go back again and again and again. It was... More

I wanted to like this place but the flies and gnats inside the restaurant were disturbing. This is a food safety issue and when I pointed it out to my server the response was a lack of concern. I had brisket, it was only ok. The rice side was nice, but the two versions of BBQ sauce were just terrible... More

This was both incredibly upsetting and surprising to see. I can assure you that cleanliness and sanitation are absolutely a top concern here, and I apologize if the impression you were left with had you feeling otherwise. This is most certainly a concern that I'll be addressing right away. We strive to always deliver a great experience that also includes... More

We decided to go here for my husband's birthday. We are big fans of BBQ, and I was excited to see such great reviews about it. We got there later in the afternoon for a late lunch, and there seemed to be a shift change/break time happening. There were 7 tables who ordered food after we did, and we all... More

I'm sorry to hear about the slight delay with your meals, Bri. You should never have to go too long before being able to eat -- especially when there's little kiddos waiting! Having said that, I'm really happy to know that your food made up for the wait time. It's especially an honor that you chose to come here for... More

Big Mike's ribs are really good. Fall off the bone tender and very tasty. Sort of a redneck joint, but great food and nice people.
