“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

Great place in the area for Bar b que. Good sized portions. Quick service. Always a smiling face to greet you and take your order. I especially like the brisket. Nice smoke ring good smoke flavor and it melts in your mouth.

Love the burgers, rib tips, sweet potato fries, baked beans, Cole slaw, and choices of sauces. Reminds me of down south.

“Great BBB and Sides!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Hi,
We eat lunch here frequently and I always enjoy the Chicken Sandwich with BBQ sauce ( along with the sides of potato salad and baked beans). The BBQ Chicken sandwich is always very moist and the variety of BBQ sauces to add to it enhances the already great taste! I also love the potato salad ( picnic variety) and especially the BBQ baked beans! Those are my two favorite sides. The portions are very good for a filling lunch at a very reasonable price!

“Oink or Moo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

I have stopped there about 5 times in the past year always on a Saturday. It has been consistently delicious. The meat is cooked to perfect tenderness and their 4 sauces are very good and different from each other, not too sweet. Their corn bread is one of the best but not the macaroni & cheese. The prices are adequate. The place is very clean. Service has always been prompt.

“Nice place but flavorless meats......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Three of us headed here for lunch today and left satisfied but unimpressed...... The pulled pork had no intrinsic flavor - same as the pulled chicken. The sauces WERE very good - but cooking meat in the sauce and only adding it cold after cooking doesn't render the same effect...... The portion was generous, the cole slaw good, baked beans tasted like they were from Boston via UPS overland but the sweet potato fries were the clear winner.

Indifferent, humorless counter staff were noteworthy - obviously not happy to be there.....

Better than fast food chains, but could've been better.
