“Good place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Finally decided to try this place for lunch. We tried the pull pork and philly q. The sandwiches were quite large and all the bbq sauces were delicious. I would have preferred to have genuine cole slaw, instead what just to be marinated cabbage. The staff was friendly and helpful with he menu. We would try this place again.

“BBQ OK, Service terrible!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Knew this place was on the food network, so have been anticipating a visit. Was finally in the area last Sunday and called from the park to place a take out order. Was given a time of 20 minutes to pick up the order. Got a call 5 minutes later to tell me that they were out of the rolls for our sandwiches, so we reordered just the meat with sides. Got there and had to wait another 20 minutes(40 total) to get our food. I really think they forgot our order. It was around 7PM, and the place was empty except for two tables.
Now for the food... the meat(we got pulled pork and brisqet) was dry and flavorless. We got a pound of each(and it was pricey) and it only came with two very small containers of sauce. The potato salad and coleslaw was OK, but the beans were horrible! They advertise on the menu that the beans are mixed with "chunks" of BBQ meat...we couldn't find a single piece. We paid $50 for the meal. The employees never said hello, thank you, or come again - which we won't be going back again. Guy Fieri would be embarrassed to know how far downhill this place has gone.

“Best BBQ! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We take all our out of town friends here. It's the best! You get a hot, huge, pulled pork sandwich dripping with honey BBQ sauce, a side of slaw, some corn fritters dipped in honey. I'm not even a BBQ fan and I love this place. A must try if you're in the area!

They have a great selection of barbecued meat & sauces to choose from! And they have tasty side dishes.

“Somethings going on..?..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

We used to frequently visit and LOVE everything every time. When we moved to Andover we went a couple times a month.
In the last year we have gone only twice because we've had overcooked meat, undercooked potatoes, and 'blah' everything else we ordered. If the bbq sauce wasn't so delicious, the meals would have been unbearable.
I didnt say anything because everyone knows no restaurant is perfect 100% of the time...
So we have told friends to visit, and now my third consecutive set of friends have told me they were so disappointed they will never go back.
I dont know if its staffing issues or if someone just needs a vacation ...but I'm afraid to go back as of right now, and cant keep recommending the place as is.
