As somebody who grew up in North Carolina, visiting family in Kansas City, and currently living in Texas, I like to think I know BBQ pretty well. This place has high quality BBQ and the sides are cooked just are perfect. The banana pudding dessert is the best I have had anywhere, it is even better than my mom's banana... More

Kinda small....kinda loud--just the usual noises--nothing crazy and worth every second of dining delight! The wait staff is exceptional and the food is delicious! Went there for lunch and the next day had friend visit and took them to dinner.....everyone I have brought here has had nothing but great things to say about the whole experience. Try it the nachos... More

Do not be fooled by appearances! The cafe is tiny and tucked in between an Asian market and a much larger restaurant in a little strip of buildings beside an apartment complex but looks are deceiving. As others have mentioned, it is rather pricey BUT every item our party got was delicious, homemade and plentiful. They have 6 to 8... More

The staff is great and for a little place thhe food is great. Unassuming place but very impressive. The hog dog is my favorite. Hot dog wrapped in bacon on a huge bun with barbeque all over it. Can't wait for my next one.

My husband, myself and another couple came for dinner. None of us had ever been or known anyone else that had. Our waitress was amazing! She was great at explaining the menu as well as the specials. My husband and I got the limeade, it was really good and a lot for the price. I even took some home. We... More

Food is really good, but it's very pricy, and the service was very poor. You order an entree with two sides, and you ask for a salad as well, shouldn't the salad come BEFORE the entree? Mine didn't, so asked her to take it back. Then asked for some ranch dressing, and was told that it would be an extra... More

I was trying to find this restaurant. I passed by it 3 times. I was determined to find it and finally found it. It didn't front the main road and was not really visible easily. The reviews were really good and I wanted to eat at a small non-chain restaurant. I had the Buttermilk Pork Chops with the Broccoli Bake... More

We both enjoyed our dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the small but good variety of options on the menu. The store front restaurant is small but the service is fast and friendly. A bit pricier than I was expecting but nice size portions. Nothing low cal about this menu but super tasty and worth every calorie. The honey maple... More
