This is a no frills BBQ joint that is ready for a crowd. The option of different sauces helped my husband and I who have different preferences get the most out of our meal. Wish we lived close by to this place!

Some of the best barbeque I have ever eaten. Loved that we could get fries and hush puppies with our order. Will definitely be going back

This BBQ is among the best I have ever had and I've eaten in BBQs from Texas to Virginia. The portions are generous, the food mouthwatering and varied, and the serving staff are congenial as well as helpful.

Great place to drop in and eat a good BBQ dinner. The ribs are smoked and great tasting. The deserts are really good.

I know most people probably come here for the meat, but I have a thing for hush puppies and fried pickles. Everything my family and I ordered here was outstanding. I only wish we lived closer. Worth the drive from anywhere.

It is big enough on the inside. I have no idea how busy Friday nights are though. Might want to call ahead.
