I went here with my mom last month. She was impressed. The portions are really big. The homemade chips are a must. She thought the mac and cheese was delicious. We will be back.

“Surprisingly excellent food in an of-the-beaten-path location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwiches and homemade fresh potato chips. The pork was great on it's own, smokey and tender, also good with their bbq sauce, and the homemade chips were wonderful. Great friendly service. Come hungry!

“JUST TOPS FOR THIS KIND OF FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This restaurant has recently changed ownership, not sure when, but it is absolutely the best for fresh, well prepared food, all made in house. The brisket is as good as any we have ever found, including Texas and California, and their 2 meat combo is just right for an older couple to share.
We found their bourbon apples almost too good for common people, and asked for how they are made.
Would highly recommend anyone visiting here to give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
Don't miss their homemade potato chips, which are unbeatable.

“Great BBQ. Stop here to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

I ordered their 2 meat combo which came with 2 meats and 2 sides and I added a drink and the total was $14. What I got was enough for 2 meals. For my 2 meats I chose the ribs and the beef brisket and for sides I got the homemade chips and bacon mac n' cheese. They also give you the option of white bread or corn bread. I opted for the cornbread.

The ribs were some of the best ribs I've eaten before. It takes a lot for me to say good BBQ but these ribs had just the right amount of smoke, just the right amount of chew, fell off the bone easily, and were dry. The meal came with 4 bones of these and they each had plenty of meat on them.

The brisket was sliced as any brisket should be. Not shredded like some folks do. The brisket was not quite as good as the ribs but they did had just the right amount of smokiness to them and it was quite juicy as well.

The homemade chips were good but I think almost any homemade chip is good and hard to mess up.

The mac n' cheese was the one downfall for this meal. I thought bacon and mac n' cheese what could go wrong here? But something did. The flavor was not tasty and I would go with a different side next time.

The cornbread was a sweet cornbread and most people will say that's not cornbread but I like sweet and it was quite tasty.

The one downside is parking is a little limited as it is in the downtown area. I went in around 2:00 so I didn't have any issues but I could see if you went at lunch or dinner time you may have trouble finding a parking spot.

If you're in this area make sure to stop by and get some food here, or make a special trip to get some food here you won't regret it.
