They must be doing something differently in making their pink lemonades now. It's not like it used to be. Not nearly as good.

This place is KNOWN far and wide for its PINK LEMONADE! It is great! I know the recipe for it too! It took me a long time to get it, but I finally did! The place burned down and the owner Jewel built it back nearly exactly like it was the first time. It's a old time feeling place, homey!

The BBQ was good if not a little light on the meat. Their french fries are wonderful. You have to get their pink lemonade. It has been the same wonderful place for the 30 years I have been going there.

This location is literally legendary around the Poplar Bluff area. If for no other reason you need to go here to try the Pink Lemonade. That's what gets people in the door (or drive-thru) but the food is great.

i would love to have been able to give this place a 4 or even a 5, but it just don't quite make the grade. It is a cute little place that, according to the signs, has been around for 67 years. The outside is kinda of quirky and the inside is cute in the old diner sort of way.... More

Have not been there in years but place is very good and prices are reasonable. Got the BBQ special with fries and only was $3.99 don't know if that's everyday or just one day of the week but cant beat them prices. Also got the pink lemonade they are famous for but in my opinion tasted more like cherry lemonade... More

This is hands down my favorite BBQ place ever. I've had LOTS of BBQ from places all over the country and this little place in my own town is my favorite. The food is simply amazing. Sandwiches and ribs. Fries or onion rings. Lots of deep fried things. And the best pink lemonade you'll ever taste. Service is really good... More
