Tasty bar-b-q and great price on Tuesdays when they have the buy one-get one free dinner. The pulled pork dinner is plentiful. Fried corn on cob is tasty. Nothing fancy but plenty of food for the price.

Just don't get the fried pickles, or have any other probs with your food. They use spears instead of slices, so we thought that would be interesting. Four people in the party (two college kids and parents), and we were expecting a decent serving for an appetizer that should be sized for four people to have more than just a taste. For $6, we received exactly 6 spears. One of those was even a little on the small side for a pickle spear. That's $1 per pickle spear. Everybody got one, and we were a little uncertain on how to divide the remaining two spears among 4 people. Hey, you want half a fried pickle spear? Anyway, I talked to the girl at the counter (awesome service from her - she's waiting tables too), and she called out the manager. This guy was a real jerk. I explained we really didn't know what our expectation was, but that the amount of food seemed definitely undersized for the price. I asked him if there was anything he could do, and he stated flat-out "NO". No more pickles, no reduced price. In fact, he said that in 3 years nobody else had ever complained about the size of the serving for the money. I asked him if he would pay $1 per fried pickle spear. He simply stated that we got what we got, and that was it, end of story.

Well, he didn't know who he was screwing with - and he's not very bright. If nothing else, I hope he loses enough business so that it would have been better if he'd just given us a few more fried pickles or knocked off a couple of bucks. Maybe this will wake this jerk up to how business works in our age of social media, but I kinda doubt it.

If the food doesn't put them out of business, their "manager" Matt surely will. Not a customer service bone in his body. Have a complaint? Oh well... Seek overcooked and reheated ribs and chicken elsewhere.And if you have allergies, make sure you hold your breath. The place hasn't been dusted in months if that! Nasty attitudes, nasty food, and a filthy atmosphere is all you get at Stumpy's. Save your time and money!

The ribs were tender but not mushy, which I hate. They were also very meaty. The sweet n smoky sauce was very good. The slaw was just okay but the beans were excellent with meat and BBQ sauce and the corn coblets were tasty and the garlic bread finished it all off. Good buy for the money. Also sports pictures all over the walls. We had a laugh over some of the old wrestling pictures.

Every Tuesday, Stumpy's features a buy one, get one free dinner plate special! Dining with a companion makes this a delicious affordable lunch! Pulled pork is delicious! Three types of sauce to satisfy everyone's palate. Avoid the cole slaw. Potato salad and Stumpy's Beans are the way to go.
