Love everything I have gotten from there. Just keep in mind it's cash only. I love the salty hog for my lunch.

We ordered the two meat combo, brisket and pulled pork and our side was smoked smashed potatoes. The potatoes had no smokey flavour, they were just boiled with rub on them and some kind of butter. The meats were both good quality but again no hint of smoke. We will not be going back. This mediocre meal ended up costing... More

This is the place for bbq. It is hard to judge because no place is like it. To call their creations garbage plates would be blasphemy. The heavenly hog is huge and around $9. It's perfect and is a perfect go to. The bbq spaghetti is amazing. Doesn't sound as good as it is again under $10! The only thing... More

For the prices, you can't beat it. For the speed and the service-- it's nothing special. Our waitress said that a different cook was working which was why the service took an hour.

We liked the server very much so helpful and pleasant. The food was hot and server quickly and efficiently. The only thing that you may need to know that... More
