Its deceptive from the exterior, thinking it would only seat 20 people, clearly much roomier than that. Pretty much a classic BBQ joint, the sights and smells all say good Q. Servers were very attentive. If your big on brisket, that's the only let down. I am beginning to believe brisket should be best handled by texans, leave the BBQ... More

My BBQ sandwich was great! I'm dinging them one star because my to-go order did not include napkins or utensils. Otherwise, friendly and prompt service and good food.

Really really good items here. Sometimes just get them. Ribs are good. Have heard they rock breakfast too. Brunswick stew is excellent.

This is the "old standby" for when we're in the mood for BBQ. The meat is (generally) tender, and the sauce (available at the table) is excellent. Their spicy and sweet varieties are really good. The sides we've tried are all great, especially the macaroni and cheese, and the potato salad. You cannot go wrong at the BBQ house.

This restaurant has great barbecue . The Brisket is the best I've ever had. Great sides too. Creamy mac and chese, deep fried corn and oh those hush puppies. Finish with peach cobbler or banana pudding. Take away available.
