Our family gets take out here a few times a year or anytime there is a craving for barbecue. It has spoiled me and I won't order it anywhere else. The place is a dive but there is a treasure trove of good food there!!

Best BBQ in Clarksville...a lil out of the way place that reminds you of a gas station back in Mayberry RFD....the folks are as colorful and the decor and the food is always yummy. I am a regular Dalton is my favorite employee.....and the pulled pork keeps me coming back.

I've been curious about this place since enjoying a take-out sandwich brought to me so decided to stop when passing that way. The place leaves much to be desired - sorely in need of a facelift and power washer inside and out. But it's love at 1st bite - the ribs are awesome, trumping the amazing pulled pork in my... More

Had ribs, baked beans, cole slaw, white bread, pecan pie and sweet tea. Great food mostly to go stuff, cool experience with real basic table setup in back room. Don't miss this experience because it's "dive" like. Friendly people, good service and great good.

If you want real barbecue smoked slowly over a real pit, this is your place. Ribs or chopped pork by the sandwich, plate with sides or by the pound. OK setting with possibly some locals to talk with at the tables. Best barbecue in Clarksville, but if you require an elegant setting, eat something else this time.

I went this last weekend since it is Fall and while I do not have a lot of time to BBQ myself, I love it more than anything. I was out on the river on Sunday afternoon when I caught a whiff of delectable, smokey BBQ through the breeze and right then I knew I had to get some. I... More

The appearance and ambiance of this place is not for the faint-of-heart. It is a locals' favorite for BBQ. Portions of BBQ very adequate. Baked beans not tasty. My take-out was not provided with any BBQ sauce, so the meat was kind of dry.

Got the pulled pork ... it didn't look pulled but rather like it was run through a blender, it was mushy, tasted like vinegar and smoke and nothing else. Very disappointed. The sauce tasted like straight vinegar with some sugar mixed in. I really don't know what everyone is talking about anymore, years ago they were the best. Not sure... More

Best BBQ sandwiches, ribs & chicken!! Salads are GREAT! Baked beans delicious! Mmmm the pies!! The staff here are so nice, friendly and efficient. You can even get a whole smoked turkey for special holidays or events. (pre-order) Try this place and you will love it too!
