“Great pulled pork!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Good simple Southern cooking. This is a no-frills place that has fantastic pulled pork. I would recommend mixing the hot in the mild sauce. Check out the sweet tea.

“Authentic Bar B Q”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

When I first went here years ago, I knew that this was not local BarBQ. Travis (the owner) was from GA and brought family recipies with him. It is not a fancy restaurant, but it is true to Southern barbeque eateries. Just good, smoked barbeque with Southern sides. Cornbread, cole slaw, and was one of the first to have "sweet tea" in Indy. The ribs are dry rubbed, but most Northerners are used to ribs soaked in sauce. The barbeque sauce is offered in regular and hot. I have brought food from here to many lunches and have consitantly had queries about where to find this place. Travis passed away a few years ago and his son has taken over with little changes.

“Very over rated.”
Reviewed January 3, 2010

Have read many reviews about this restaurant, I was very surprise at the poor food quality. The ribs where tough and fatty. The pulled pork was dry and had little smoke flavor. I love good BBQ, but this is not the place for that.

“Bland and Boring”
Reviewed November 10, 2009

After reading the reviews here was looking forward to some good bbq. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. We ordered the sampler platter which had pulled chicken, pulled pork, ribs and brisket the platter came with cole slaw and a corn muffin. The pulled pork and chicken were dry and had no taste , the ribs were overcooked and once again no smoke taste not even any flavor from a rub and the brisket just pot roast. The cole slaw was OK and the corn muffin was stale. The bbq sauces were pretty good but if you're looking for good BBQ look some where else.

“Only real bbq in Indy”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

This place is the only restaurant in town where you can get real barbeque if you are an actual bbq fan and have had it in one of the country's great restaurants. The restaurant itself is run down and in a strip mall but still worth it.
