The ribs were very good, the pulled pork excellent, and sadly the brisket was dry. Their sauces are also very good, as were the sides. Having spent a lot of time in the South, I am very particular about my ribs. I will go back, but can't say that is the best I've had.

We phoned in our order, picked it up and brought it home to enjoy. We ordered beef brisket, chicken and pork and it was all good. I didn't care so much for the mashed potatoes or the macaroni. The mashed potatoes would have been fine, except they were seasoned with too many herbs. The macaroni tasted smoked, which was confusing... More

met there for a business lunch today with a couple of colleagues. It is in an older house, quaint set up. Reception/ordering area has full wall blackboards with all the menu items posted. Food and price was good. It was a little slow getting the meal as it was prepared in front of us by one person, so it moved... More

If your looking for BBQ and not in Texas, look this place up. Kinda like a Texas place where you didn't come for the atmosphere. Had the ribs and they were perfect for my taste. Not over powering by smoke and they fall off the bone. Beans were good also. I would definitely return. Too bad no Lone Stars in... More

I was invited to a wedding luncheon while visiting from out of state. The facilities are old, but once I tasted the food, I forgot about the building! I loved the rosemary mashed potatoes, beef brisket, and rolls! We ate upstairs in the banquet room, and the meal was great!

They have good meat, sauces, and sides. It does have a limited dining area, but we almost always take-out. Recommended for this area.

I have been here about 4 times now and each time the food and portions seem consistent and the food is always good. Their brisket salad and cornbread are my favorite. The restaurant itself is located in an old house converted into commercial property. The outside looks old, but dont judge this place by its cover. As the area continues... More

Hard to give this place a high review because they're always out of meat. It's been brisket the last few times and they were out of ribs the last visit. Perhaps you can get brisket if you show up when they open?
