I highly recommend the pulled pork and their "cheesy taters". Sinful. The turkey was overdone, but if you like BBQ, this is a great one to try.

Still the best BBQ in Topeka in my opinion. One meat and one side will fill you up. Be sure to get the cheesy taters as they are just as good as the BBQ!

Thought the food was excellent and will be back. Kind of hard to find the first time, but it is worth it. We got there about 11:45 and stood in line, but that was OK, just means the food is good..

Stopped in right before they closed for the day and the owner was super friendly! The BBQ is delicious, especially the smoked turkey! I can’t wait to go try the Ribs! The only downside is the hours.

After waiting in line for 30 min we finally got to order. The pork was extremely greasy and not much flavor. Did get large sized sides. Not sure I’d go again though.

They have the BEST cheesy potatoes and I usually get the Q cup with pulled pork. The meat is always great tasting and I never need to put BBQ sauce on it. The service is always great and very friendly. I would definitely recommend them...More

... food, portion size and cleanliness. Only 4 stars because of the extremely limited open hours. For the few one star reviewers I can only say- so sorry you have no idea what BBQ should be.
