Personally I like a good sauce on my ribs. The sides were good, and the price reasonable. Service was ok, but not... More

We stopped in while traveling from St. Louis to Kansas City. The burnt ends sandwich, Texas toothpicks, and bean are delicious. Definitely worth driving away from the interstate.

Turkey, pulled pork, green beans, baked beans, BARBEQUE sauce! All very good. The pit salad was a little wilted. Did not care for Bisket as much.

This place is super cute, clean and has a fun atmosphere. My little sister is a Mizzou tiger and my husband literally makes her "ship" the ribs from here home to South Florida. No lie. The last time I was in town I bought a "cold rack" and flew home with it. Don't judge us, the ribs are just actually... More

It had been a while since I've been to Buckingham, so I was pleased when it was suggested for a group lunch. We had a variety of sandwich meals with standard sides. All said it was fine, and one even had enough left over to take home. I admit I hold BBQ places to a higher than average standard. I've... More

If you are looking for a quick, good plate of BBQ then this place is for you. I love, love love the pit beans. The meats are tender, and tasty. I have used them for catering many times and the food is always a hit.

We love pit turkey and this is by far the best pulled pit turkey we have ever had. Service was great, food came out quick. Was just what I was looking for. It's a little ways off 70 but was worth it. Definitely recommend it.

This restaurant is off the beaten path so to speak. Not likely that you would find it accidently. We got great service here. Plenty of menu items to choose from. The food was very good and the portions were very adequate!

There's something to be said for a franchise that does not try to be all things, but stays "comfortable in its own skin." This is a BBQ place. Several kinds of meats smoked and flavorful even without BBQ sauce. Cole slaw and corn on the cob are necessary and ok to good. The decor is formulaic wooden benched booths and... More
