Drove 30 miles to try Karl’s. Was very disappointed. Pulled pork was dry. Ribs were not good. Very chewy and tough. Way undercooked. Left a lot of meat on the bone. So so on flavor. Sides were ok.

I eould think twice about going here to eat. Understaffed resulting in extremely slow service. Received our food and the only thing that was hot were the beans.

Stopped in and ordered meals to go since the seating is limited in the restaurant. Very good food. If you get lucky and catch one of the daily specials the bill will also make you smile.
