“Not a fan”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

OK, I had the buffet. Let's get that out of the way since any thoughtful reader will understand that that usually is not the best quality option. That said, the ribs were good as was the mac and cheese. The pork was a little bland and the beans were over salted and average. Dessert was buffet standard, great for feeding and army but no stand outs. We were there during the busy time and housekeeping was less than optimal. That could be due to the volume (though there were only 8 other people in the dining area. Staff was friendly, though with a serve yourself venue it is hard to judge efficiency. Prefer Sonny's butgood for a change if you like the buffet format.

“Love the pork”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Pretty much a order at counter and sit down style. The pork is really good. Had the pork sandwich with slaw last time w/fries. I like the fries that are seasoned. The mustard BBQ sauce is off the hook. Love it. A lot of choices and all of them good. Go try it, you won't regret it.

“Excellent BBQ and super friendly. Love them”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I order here a few times a year for a group of 50-60. For the price, we always have enough food. Food is always exceptionally tasty, fresh, well prepared and authentic. Out group will continue to cater our meals through them and you should too.
