Tried this place out of convenience after a long work day. In the hotel parking lot of the Hampton Inn. Ordered beef brisket, chicken tenders, Mac and cheese, fries, and bread pudding. Everything was tasty and it hit the spot for me. Mac and cheese was extra cheesy just how I like it. Classic mustard sauce was my sauce of... More

Went back for the third time in four years. Service was much friendlier and the BBQ is still great. I am sure that I'll be dreaming out this pecan pie forever. We shared a piece, and I wish that I had gotten my own. Still a great establishment and our favorite BBQ place around here. Get the pie!

We went in for a late dinner while visiting Charleston. It is next door to our hotel and we were tired. Since trip advisor had the place ranked high we tried it out. You order at the counter and they bring you your food so it is quick. I had the beef brisket sandwich. It was so big that I... More

I don't generally choose to eat BBQ, but the reviews and pictures convinced me to try it. I was so glad I did. The service was fast and friendly, and every part of my meal was delicious. I had ribs, pork, baked beans, and fries. The ribs fell off the bone, and the beans were perfect. I ate every last... More

We had collards & squash both sides very flavorful. The hash was just so so. Also had the Corn fritters...very yummy! Prices very reasonable. Nice variety of BBQ sauces to... More

Saw online one of top places to eat in North Charleston. It did not disappoint. Two in the party got rib platters, two got sandwiches. Rib meat fell off the bone, fantastic. Not a million sauces, but the 4 or so they had were as good as they get. Our favorite: sweet. Also, the grape juice lemonade, awesome.

The best BBQ and wings I have had in a long time! Great customer service and a very clean atmosphere. The sweet and sassy sauce was scrumptious!

Stopped there with a large group when the Texas Roadhouse a few miles away couldn't accommodate our size. Not really a full service restaurant as you order food at the counter then bring to the table. Beer available. BBQ was solid but the sides are average to disappointing. Not a bad experience and rescued our group from famine.
