Folks have compared our barbecue to other styles but no other barbecue compares to our taste! Maybe it's the unique design of our smoker that brings out the natural flavor of our "fall off the bone" meat. Maybe it's our homemade sauce that makes you forget your table manners because its so finger-licken-good! Maybe it's because our pork is all hand pulled so you only receive the best selected meat from our cuts. Maybe it's the made from scratch delicious, decadent, southern desserts! Maybe you should just try it for yourself and see what everyone is talking about! When you order just tell 'em to make-er-saucy!"

Can't give a rating on food I didn't get to try it! #sad #disappointed Been checking out the reviews on this place for months now, seen online that the dinning area was open now (don't remember where I read this). I have a uncontrollable craving...for fried okra and seriously coukd eat it everyday like popcorn. I read online they have the best fried okra around (I will be the judge of that, okra has to be done just right) snice they are closed on Mondays I called up my mom told her I was going to take her to lunch tomorrow (Tuesday) we drove all the way to Browns Ferry RD just to see that the dinning area is closed, but decided to call in and eat at the tables outside because I had waited all this time to try their okra, then it happened a huge sign saying their fryer was down, so that meant no frys or fried okra. So we gave up and went to Logans but I could have ate at Logans right down the street from my home. Please I want to try you guys but I can't without the OkRA it is the most important dish of the day lol.More

First time eating here. Wanted to try it because of other reviews and had heard it was good. Only doing take out as owners choice, but it is understanable. No issues with me on this. Can call in an order or order when you walk...up. The staff is super friendly and the food was fantastic. We sat outside on picnic tables to eat. The BBQ and sides were just great! I would for sure eat here again. Would love to try on of the pizzas.More

Due to COVID-19 they only had curbside service without inside seating. They had 3 picnic tables so we had a Bbq picnic. We had pork sandwich with fried okra, sweet slaw, beans. The baked potato loaded with pork and cheese was good. And the BBQ...Fry Plate of crinkle fries topped with pork, cheese and sides of slaw and beans was delicious. Some of the best BBQ we’ve had on road trips. Recommend this place!More

Ate here two times. The mac & cheese is worse than hospital mac & cheese. I mean it, this stuff tasted like plastic with zero flavor. The beans are rich, but a 15 minute drive home and they burned my tongue. What is the holding...temp on these? Also have seen them post that their burgers are "huge grass fed beef and juicy!" The ribs are dry and the pork is nothing special. The ribs are on top of each other in the smoker. I am a chef of 10+ years and culinary major. This is an overpriced joke with a decent sauce.More

Stopped by for dinner and we weren't disappointed. Everything was delicious. The baked potato with beef was great, bbq beans are just the right combination of sweet and spicy. Their fried okra was lightly battered and had excellent flavor.The kid who won't eat bbq enjoyed...their pizza and said it was great. They don't have a liquor license but let you bring in from next door.More

Staff was friendly. Food was way overpriced for the quality, especially $6 for a piece of pie that was homemade but not great. Pork was way too smoky. Sweet potato was perfect and had a great flavor. Cheeseburger was just average. The staff asked if...it was okay snd it was edible, just okay, but not very good in my subjective opinion. I spent over $30 for 2 meals that left us feeling disappointed. I really couldn’t try to swap for different menu items because We had already eaten everything, plus it already took 20 minutes from purchase to table and I had to meet friends afterwards. There were about 4 other tables with customers when we ordered. My overall experience was poor.More
