Very good barbecue! I had the burnt ends and they were very yummy! Also had the fries and baked beans. All of it was good!!! Very casual atmosphere. We went during lunch and it was very busy. But I could see why because it is some yummy barbecue!!!

The food and service was very good. Had the ribs, they were perfect, falling off the bone, with black eyed peas and potato salad. Wife had Chopped Beef with coleslaw and black eyed peas. The whole meal was great. Shared banana pudding for desert. Will definitely go back.

The ribs are awesome. The catfish is also very good. We arrived around 5:45 on Friday and there was already a line. Good food. Good service. Clean restrooms. Reasonable prices. Definitely worth a stop!

This is where we usually go when we're in Muskogee. The BBQ is pretty good and we like the catfish they serve.

Friday evening and almost all tables were full with more people waiting for carry out orders. Brisket dinner was excellent with an awesome slaw. Despite the crowd the service was excellent. I have a new favorite barbeque joint.

We stopped here while on a day trip to Muskogee. The place is clean, service very prompt and the food was excellent. I had the pulled pork and my husband had the chopped beef and we both had black eyed peas. Very good!! Would definitely go back!
