Our first time im Florence and wanted to have "real barbeque" . Craig's was recommended by a staffer at our hotel. It is convenient, located on the main road, and has lots of parking. We were there early in the evening, and as it wasn't busy, we expected top service and tasty food. While the service was good, when arrived,... More

Just had dinner last night. I thought that the burger would be a good choice as it was called the Craigburger! Mistake! Their signature dish was dry and overcooked. The bun seemed stale and the fries unappealing. Perhaps I should have tried the Viking burger which weighed 2 lbs. and included couple of patties,a hot dog, and pastrami!!??

Go for the beef ribs when they have 'em. Best BBQ ribs ever!! We also like the brisket sandwich, cole slaw, beans, and sweet potato fries.

We went here for supper because we love BBQ. The servers were lovely and very helpful. We got the platter with all the meat options. The brisket was very good, but the pork, chicken, and ribs were dry and just not good. We were so disappointed.

We live in town and had been meaning to try this place out. Rather disappointing. First up...their menu is not up to date. We wanted the tri tip with grilled onions. No longer available!! The brisket was served cold, the very small serving of coleslaw had little to no taste, the beans were nothing special. We did a to go... More

Had dinner here 08/02. Had the loaded mac and cheese with pulled pork and smoked nachos with pulled pork. Some of the pork was a little dry, but overall a good meal. The mac/cheese was very, very hot. BE CAREFUL IF YOU ORDER THIS. Total was $18.45 before tip.

This small cafe has a no-nonsense appeal to those who loved smoke, barbecued meats and ribs. Tiny no frills bar with limited selection of beers and wines, plus a full bar. People come here because the bbq is exceptional. The usual sides of potatoes, salads, beans, etc. If you love barbecue, then you'll find your fill here. Very friendly wait... More

If you're in the mood for barbeque you might stop here but food is not memorable. Not one of those gourmet barbeque places. Several good micro-brews on tap. Service friendly and attentive.

Came for a Tuesday lunch after the "rush hour". The lunch special was smoked 2 ribs, cowboy beans, cole slaw and a bun. Ribs came with no sauce on them. The 2 ribs were tender on one end and quite chewy (overcooked) on the other. One chooses from a selection of 5 sauces which come in little squirt bottles. Sauce... More
