The steakburger and fried pickles were good. The bbq pork meat was good but sauce was very bad. I've been to many bbq places and this was a big flop. The waitress was very nice. The pink lemonade was not good. We were the only people in the place at 6:30 Thursday night. We were very disappointed .

Consistent. Change in ownership a few years ago only made it better. Barbeque pulled pork sandwich and pink lemonade--really good on a hot July day. Drive thru also.

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
