“Not what it is cracked up to be!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

High priced food. Burgers over cooked, pork ribs fatty and not much meat. Provided with a butter knife to eat them, but needed a sharp steak knife instead. Reviews suggested that this place should have been outstanding. Not!

“Best BBQ North of the Masion Dixon.......”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Their Ribs are the best. Seasoned deliciously- cooked perfectly. The collard greens and their okra are very good too. Tremendous size portions. Full service Bar too.

“Looks like a dive bar, but food is great”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Don't be deterred by the shabby exterior. The inside of this BBQ joint is warm and welcoming, with quirky pig-themed decor on the walls. Delicious food. We've never had a bad meal there. Come hungry. You will get your fill of BBQ, along with a nice selection of sides, for a very reasonable price.
