“Good food - but service was awkward at best”
Review of Fired Up Bar-B-Que - CLOSED

Fired Up Bar-B-Que
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 11, 2014

We stopped in during the Magic Dragon Street Meet weekend, it was not busy at the time. We were immediately seated and told the special, which we both ordered.

From there, the service was somewhat awkward, and the server kept coming back when we hadn't received anything yet... to ask if everything was okay.

I think this place has a good start, and hopefully they'll smooth out the service issues and be a great bbq place at the lake.

You will not leave hungry!! The spin dip is amazing!!! I also had the Greek Salad - it comes in a Mason jar for you to shake and serve yourself!! $3 Margarita's!! Hubby at BBQ - loved it. Staff were attentive but not pushy at all!! We will stop again when in the area. Prices were not bad - $9 for HUGE salad!!

In my opinion, this is the best BBQ at the Lake! Forget Bandana's, head to Fired Up BBQ!
I was at the lake with some family members for a ladies weekend and we all raved about how good the experience was at Fire Up. We were there for a late lunch/early dinner and had fantastic quick service. The server was helpful with menu choices and kept our drinks full. The portions are generous and every employee we encountered was very friendly. The menu has a large variety, so there is something to please everyone.
Fired Up has definitely become my go-to BBQ when at the Lake!

I was with a party of six for a late lunch during a girl's getaway weekend. Server was friendly and attentive, even though we changed our order a couple of times. Food was great, we all ordered different meals and all were very satisfied. Plenty of food, you won't go away hungry. Corn bread is fantastic. The restaurant is clean, variety of menu items available to please everyone. I will be returning.

If you are hungry, this is not the place to go, you will wait to sit, wait longer for service, and a very long wait for food. Furthermore, if you are to inquire about your food, all the wait staff will disappear. By the time we gave up, we tried to pay for our soda, and again the wait staff disappeared. This was written after our second trip to this restaurant, with the same service. They had four people visible on the staff working on labor day weekend, six tables occupied in the entire store, and the only response we could get was either "hold on", "wait", or "we're really busy", verbatim. I will say that the food is awesome, however do not go on an empty stomach since you will wait for a very long time.
