This was a small , clean place with tables and booths. Family owned for many years. I like to support local spots. No bar. Good beer selection by the bottle. If you are a wine drinker you'll be disappointed. No liquor. The place got packed even though it was a weekday. The prices are very fair for what you get.... More

The smoke meats here are great. The flavored are amazing and the menu has a good variety. The beans and side salads are perfect with there smoked meats.

We've been going here since they opened. BBQ is excellent!!! We've had chicken, ribs, pork, brisket BBQ they're all great. If you are a fish lover, the cajun catfish is soooo good. Their cornbread is heavenly.

Driving from Boston to Chicago and stopped in for lunch. Had the king platter to share with hubby and grown daughter. Ribs with meat falling off, polish sausage and pulled pork. Yum!!! Had lemonade cupcake and Kentucky derby pie for desert. Very rich!!! The fried okra was great too. We loved it!

My husband suggested going to this place because it had such good reviews online. We were not impressed. We got there before the rush so we didn't have to wait for seats, were served our beverages quickly, and then we waited, and waited, and waited for the waitress to come back to take our order. I could see her across... More

So who doesn't love good BBQ. I certainly do, especially after spending some time living down south. I was told to check this place out. It smelled like BBQ, that's always a good sign. There was a 10-15 minute wait on a Friday evening. I ordered the create your own combo that came with 2 sides. I had the pulled... More

This is not only the best barbecue place in WNY, it is one of the best casual dining experiences period. The food is always perfect, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is out in just a few minutes even when they are busy.

Had lunch here for my husband's birthday. The service was quick. The food was very basic. I didn't consider it anything to write home about. I had a Cuban and my husband a very dry looking pork sandwhich. It gets such great reviews that I think, perhaps, we went in on an off day. Not in a hurry to go... More

Being a native western New Yorker but one who travels for a living, I know what true southern barbecue is supposed to taste like and let me tell you - THIS PLACE NAILS IT!!! The sad part is my wife's grandmother lives a couple blocks away and we never knew this place was here - trust me - if we... More

We found it on trip advisor and decided to try it. The service was incredibly fast, we had just ordered and the food was there. And it was hot. The BBQ sandwich was excellent and so were the fries. They were seasoned just right. Also got a Kentucky Derby piece of pie to go and it was delicious. Would definitely... More
