I ordered the Blackened Crispy Brisket Tips--the meat I could find on them was tasty, but they were mostly fat; my husband ordered the regular brisket which was quite a bit leaner. Tasty potato salad, cole slaw, and beans. Waitress was somewhat distant, and I...More

My girlfriend and I stopped here on a day trip to Virginia and got a sampler platter that came w/2 sides. The ribs were the best part & were only average. The pulled pork & need brisket were terrible w/way too much fat, the corn...More

This was my first visit but my BF has been here before. We drove 45 minutes just to come eat here. I had the combo platter of pork belly and ribs. The pork belly was good, but the ribs are great! I bought a full...More
