Portions were large and very tasteful. There was so much food, neither myself or friend could finish all of our food. Fast, friendly service.

I ordered the St. Louis style ribs - the smallest size and broccoli and beans as my sides. The ribs were fatty and the baby backs probably would have been better, but I wanted to save a few bucks. The sides were very good. My husband ordered chicken with dirty rice and apples. The prices were probably in line, but... More

You have to try the loaded Baked potato!! Comes with their signature pulled pork on top. There are lots of sauces at the table to choose from all super yummy. I was there on a girls trip and everything we ordered was amazing. Prices are quite reasonable and our waitress was awesome. Definitely a place we will visit again!!!!

My 8 year old loves Ribs and BBQ!! Went here at her request and was not disappointed. I had the pulled pork and it was so good I forgot to add or try any of the "table sauces" She had the ribs and she was very happy as well We will return again!
