“Great pulled pork!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

My 16 yr old said it's some of the best pulled pork ever! Sliced turkey was wonderful! Ribs were delicious. Sweet potato bites we wish we could have every day...wow! Beef was ok....and it was freezing in the room in which we were seated...hence, only 4 stars.

“BBQ sandwich was good!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

This place was pretty good--my pulled pork sandwich was really good and my son and husband had the ribs-- they also said it was good. Some others in our party didn't like their food as much. Service was excellent!!

“Ahhh, so so...”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We started with the fried veggie app. It was nearly burnt. We asked about the mac and cheese and the waitress told us it was kraft. The veggies were frozen and bland. The star attraction the pork was pretty good. We might go back just for the pulled pork. Overall it was a little pricey for what you got. BUT the service was good and the staff friendly.

“The BBQ Brisket was just OK.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The beef brisket is alright, too much fat left on it for my taste. It doesn't come up to KC brisket in any fashion. The sauces are good, the brisket needed some more flavor. The service was fast and friendly, the portions were filling and sides were good. A good BBQ place for the area but, sorry to say, would get blown away by a real BBQ joint.
