Decent BBQ nachos Large portions Friendly staff-I had encountered powdered cheese at another restaurant in Tupelo. The staff here LOL'ed when I asked if they used "real cheese." They most certainly do! The restaurant decor, etc. is "basic" and "rustic."

It was 200pm when we stopped by. They had put away all the good sides they have during lunch. Our first choice side - sweet potato fries were not available. Onion rings are great, home fries are fresh. Pulled pork was barely Luke warm. Ribs...More

The BBQ here is just not good. Service is fine, price is reasonable, but it's basically the same quality as BBQ from a grocery store deli. There are easily 3 to 4 places in town with better BBQ.

We stopped here when passing though on Hwy 45. Very convenient location if traveling this way. Staff was friendly. Everything was delicious. Prefer the onion rings over the homestyle fries. Only wish they had fried okra. The BBQ sauce was very good.
