I wish there was just a "good" option on the star system. I would rate better than average but not quite very good. I thought the prices were fair, There was an option of a dinner at about $11.00 vs a platter at $8.50 and both were the same except for the amount of meat our waitress said. We each got the pork platter and were quite full and satisfied with that. The texas toast was tasty, french fries good, husband had baked beans which he said was very good. We would go back.

Food too pricey. Would cost a fortune for a family to eat there. Funny thing was, we asked for the meat to be cut up on my wives sandwich and they said they do not do that. Guess they do not trust the chefs with knives. Everything was cut and dried. Not friendly at all. Just get them in, get them out.

We showed up with about 35 people and had reservations. They were wonderful. We were greeted in a friendly manner, they were totally ready for us with enough staff. Everyone was served efficiently and the food was great.

When we pulled into the Ingles West Shopping Cnter and there were FIVE, count em, FIVE, trailered bass boats in the parking lot, I knew we were in for a treat. Searching out BBQ joints, I search for utility company BIG trucks first, pickups second, then trailered bass boats. We had two vehicles and 11 people, so we pretty much tried everything. Start with te fried beans and jalepenos. We had the Smoked Turkey dinner. AWESOME. Their Brunswick Stew is to die for. Chicken, Pork, AND Beef. Woah! Others said brisket, pork, and chicken was equally as well. Sure did look good.

This corner location, so you gotta FIND it. Been there over 12 years, and I'd never seen it!

Definitely a FIVE BASS BOATS (with a STAR for each) dine!!!

Restaurant was empty the last time we went and we should have just left but since our first visit the previous year was great, we stayed. Big mistake. Food was cold and dried out. We don't like to ever say anything and when we gave in and asked about it nothing was done. It was a waste of $70.00. Save your money go elsewhere.
