Six of us ate here for dinner. They had smokers outside where the meat was cooked. We ate pork, chicken, hamburger, shrimp, & a hot dog. All was good. Liked the choice of hot or mild sauce. Clean dining area. Only complaint: choice of drinks not posted anywhere. Had to ask.

A nicely varied menu and generous portions of great tasting food. What more could you ask for? We usually get ours to go so I can't comment on service in the dining room. Service seems slow when you walk in off the street and order. But you can call ahead and place your order.

You won't regret stopping by Lark's...they know how to barbecue!. It doesn't matter if you get the chicken, the brisket or the ribs...you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I used Lark's to cater our wedding back in 2014, on my mom's farm. The fine folks at Lark's were on time, prepared with their mobile smoker and plenty of supplies. The smoker was a huge hit- people took photos, and it made the wedding that much more festive. The food was incredible. I'm from the north,... More

Stopped for lunch. Dining area was bright and clean with happy customers. I ordered 1/2 slab of ribs. More than I can eat at one sitting but I wanted to try their ribs again. Service was prompt and friendly. Ribs were nothing but yummm! If you like smoky BBQ , you will love Larks.

I am truly amazed at the wonderful service and the delicious food we've received. The food was extremely yummy and again, the service great. I loved how the owner greeted us and stroke up a conversation with us. I'm so happy for the owner and how far he got in life. Keep up the amazing work.

Lark has been cooking BBQ in this area for decades and just within the last couple of years made a table dining inside an old gas station where he would cook outside(still does) and you would just drive up and take out. The Q is great the sides are even just as good.

Small, clean venue with no-frills decor. One sauce, but it was tasty and offered on the side. I tried the white meat chicken and the brisket, which was decently lean. Jambalaya had a nice kick. Corn bread was just okay.... overall,it's a good choice in an area without a ton of great food options.

The food is great, and since moving down the street into a larger and nicely redecorated building the parking lot always seems full. We love the ribs, bbq chicken, and beef brisket. They have many different choices for sides, and their desserts are yummy.
