I travel frequently on business and love to try out BBQ places. The food here was so good I made a return trip before heading for home. My coworker did the same thing. I had the beef hot dog (amazing!) and beef brisket (unbelievable!!). I will definitely be returning the next time I'm in Harrisburg.

We found this on trip advisors and decided to try it. We tried the pull pork sandwich and the burger. The burger was very good and the meat in the pulled pork was very good. However, the BBQ sauces (2 of them) were both very runny and had way too much vinegar in them

I had ribs, a whole cornbread and Mac and cheese. The ribs had a good flavor but there didn't seem to be as much meat on them as I would have thought. A whole cornbread was too much though. Half would have been plenty but get the honey butter that was excellent. The Mac and cheese was a little salty... More

Hard to find good BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon lime. This place is a hidden gem. Get the pulled pork and craft soda.

This is a good Barbecue joint! It is a self serve style restaurant where you place your order at the register and it is brought to your table. There are approximately 25 seats inside with about five large picnic tables outside under the eaves of the building. The ribs are served Memphis style and there are two house made BBQ... More

Absolutely love the pork bbq! The sandwiches are loaded with meat. Brisket sandwich and burgers are great too! Fresh cut fries is the icing on the cake!

This place turned from hidden gem to a full house...for good reason. Everything is made from scratch, all the different items on the menu are well thought out and pulled of perfectly. The mac and cheese is one my favourite sides, very flavourful. The creamy coleslaw, delicious, the fries perfectly crispy. The ribs excellent as always, it's a dry rub... More

Ordered half rack of ribs and fries. The half rack was undercooked....when done properly the meat should fall off the bone and it did not and this meat was tough. Also, the fries did not taste fresh cut and this was what I expected. Don't plan to return....

Sorry you were disappointed with the ribs. There are two schools of thought on ribs. One is where you cook many ribs at a time in a covered pan with liquid, then when you've cooked all the flavor out of them you put them in the frig til someone orders them, throw them in the mic for a minute and...
