“Ok BBQ joint”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The bbq is pretty good however, I don't think they have alot of business because the ribs and brisket are over cooked most of the 7 or so times we've eaten there but still much better than I could make (I assume it's because it sits in the warmer a while?) . Prices are reasonable like all BBQ joints $11 a pound for meats and $18 or so for a rack of ribs. Service is lacking, sides are below par and the interior need to be redone including all serving ware. We go there because it's the closest BBq to our house and we do like their meats most of the time.

“Still the Best Place or Lunch”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The place is always busy over lunch, but you are able to get in and out very quickly. The food is great (especially the brisket) and I always try to go there at least once when I am in town.

“Potato Salad!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The bbq is good but inconsistent. I've had fantastic ribs and the next time meh. But always a winner, The Potato Salad! I dont want to know whats in it. Because anything this good, has got to be bad for you. Its worth the trip in just to try it. Seriously.
