This place is a diner type of facility. Not fancy dress - come as you are. The staff is quick and friendly. Prices and food were delicious. I got the BBQ chicken salad with hush puppies and fried okra. All were good. Come hungry- the portions are big. If you like meat - this is the place.

We have been coming to this location (and the closed location on the South side of town) for twenty years. The waitress staff is still super but the food is not the quality of the past, The BBQ was not fresh and very dry. The slaw seemed to be not much more than chopped cabbage, The owner was working the... More

This was a good lunch, but not a great lunch. The service was great. Food was average. The BBQ slaw was a little dry and bland, the BBQ baked beans had a different taste, almost had a cinnamon flavor, not what I expected; no BBQ flavor. The BBQ was good but not great, clean, no fat, which I like, with... More

In the area for a wedding and thought we would get some authentic Barbecue. Great staff very friendly. Food was cooked just right and was served quickly. I have eaten a lot of barbecue and would put theirs in the top 10%. We had ribs and chicken, Cole slaw, hush puppies, onion rings, Mac and cheese and green beans. We... More

Better than average BBQ. I used to eat here years ago when I worked in the area. Not as good as I remember but good. I would not drive out of my way to eat here but if you are in the area and want BCQ, this is a good choice.

From the outside this place looks just like another hole in the wall, on the inside, it is very quiet and allows you to get your BBQ Zen on! The ribs are perfectly cooked and seasoned, congratulations pit master. The brisket had a nice little tug to it, another sign of someone that knows what they are doing when cooking... More

Stopped in for some authentic Carolina BBQ and was not impressed. The food was not all the same temperature. The fried squash was piping hot (and tasty), the beans were cold, and the meat was slightly warm. The BBQ flavors were underwhelming and didn't have a strong finish. Conversely, the mustard based sauce was very good and saved the meal... More

What a great little hole in the wall. We were lookin' for a place to eat and spotted the billboard so we tried it. We were absolutely NOT disappointed.

Service was fast and friendly. Slab of ribs was cold. They say they Re-grill after sauce? Maybe they forgot this on mine. Onion rings are good. Chopped pork is above average. Macoronia and cheese is not my style...

We ordered their platter and it was good, in taste and portion. (except the slaw - avoid the slaw). The place looks clean and the food got to us quickly. It was wanting a refill on our drinks that took forever. I finally got up and went to get it myself (Yes that bad) and the place wasn't even full.... More
