Highly recommend giving it a shot and their menu as well. Sat in the bar area as it was less noisy and easier to... More

The food use to be great. The prices were reasonable. But that walked out the door. The last few years the prices have skyrocketed and the portions have been trimmed.

Best BBQ! The loaded potatoes are to die for and my hubby loved the chicken! We're taking our pie to go because we're stuffed! Our waitress was very sweet and helpful as this was our first visit! We will definitely be back!

Very popular restaurant. Ordered the ribs and bbq chicken...very delicious. I loved the biscuits before dinner. Fried Green tomatoes were great! If ordering alcohol, be sure to bring your ID...they look at it no matter what.

This is a great place to go for BBQ however the prices have increased quite a bit lately. We still go here but not as often as we used to.

Lunch on a Saturday. Nothing special with service. I was very happy with food taste. Long line for tables when we left indicates this is popular place.
