Very clean restaurant! This is the best BBQ in Topeka! They have limited hours, so get there early when they open. If they run out of any meats or sides, then that's all there is. They will usually substitute something else and make it right....More

Probably the best BBQ I have ever had, and I have traveled to plenty of chicken shacks and rib barns over many years. We had the brisket sandwich and ribs, which were tender and tasty. The cheesy taters, coleslaw, and beans were outstanding. The proprietor...More

I love eating here but sure wish they had longer hours. We don't always have a chance to make it for lunch and the one night that's open isn't long enough.

The entire menu is bursting with flavor. There isn't a disappointment to be seen on the menu. All sides and meats are made fresh daily and if you leave hungry it's on you! The portions are absolutely gut busting. You won't find better BBQ in...More
