We went here for lunch. My wife and I split a choose 3 meal ( which ended up being a 4 because I couldn't help myself) We had the pulled pork, BBQ chicken breast, chicken tenders, and sausage. We both chose baked beans as our side. The food was delicious. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. I ended up... More

When I go to this place for lunch I stay away from their BBQ because it's normally nothing special, so I stick with a salad. That's what I had this time as I watched those around me comment on the dryness of the BBQ needing of course sauce on it which means not really good BBQ. Visit here for a... More

Took my friend out for dinner on bachelor party weekend and stopped here. Was tremendously impressed with the service and the food. I recommend the smoked Memphis dry rub wings with brown sugar. The entrees were good and baby back ribs were good and drink specials. Was impressed traveled to south and had BBQ and Smokey Bones was right up... More

Stopped by for lunch. This was my second time at SB's. Love the lunch special, one meat, two sides and bread for under $10. Best deal around. As always the food was good along with the service. You won't find better barbecue anywhere in the country.

Naturally we had to go for the ribs. She ordered the baby back & I went for the St. Louis style. Sides were baked potato & cole slaw. You get 2 choices of sides. We shared the ribs so we both could sample. Both of us preferred the baby back over the dry rub though both were quite good. The... More

We went here on a Saturday night and it was a tad busy. They've improved their menu recently and it was a good thing. I would say they specialize in BBQ items like pulled pork, brisket etc. They have a baked potato meal that has a meat on it and it IS tasty. They also have build your own burgers... More

Just off the Interstate 81 freeway, the restaurant is set inside a giant shopping mall/outlet center. This is a welcome and reasonable respite for the weary traveller. The food is what you would expect, big menus of mostly the same things (shredded pork, beef, chicken) but packaged in different combinations. The portions are large. And in case there's not enough...
