The brisket sandwich was tasty, though a little dry. The one-tablespoon portion of coleslaw (really???) side is ridiculous.

Some of the best burgers and bbq to be found anywhere. Very plain but clean. Usually a line just before opening. Ample parking and seating. Great fries, serve yourself drinks. Never disappointed. Prices moderate, staff friendly.

The dry rub ribs were excellent. The beans were way too vinegary for me & the coleslaw very finely chopped but tasty.

Stopped here on our way back o the hotel as we were traveling back to Virginia. The dry rub on the baby back ribs was amazing especially coupled with the sauce. The beans were a treat! They even had a drive through!

Nothing fancy just down home bbq. We waited about 15 minutes to order but the food was well worth it. My coworkers got the brisket with slaw. I had a burger. I will be there again the next time I have business in Tennessee.

Enjoyed a half-rack order of Memphis dry rub ribs, which we shared back in our hotel room. With potatoes and cole slaw it was enough to share if you're not ravenous. Although held in a warming area for who knows how long, the ribs were...More
