“Awesome BBQ”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

The food here is great. The staff is friendly and the food is prepared and served fast. I always come here when I get a craving for BBQ. Much better than the other so called BBQ joint down the road. I would have 5 stared it but sometimes depending on who's working the portions get too small.

“YUMMO Brisket”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Saw this place advertised in a local coupon handout and tried it. Had SUPER tender brisket with mac & cheese, green beans, and terrific, fresh hushpuppies. Great sauce choices. Friendly staff.

“Not what it's cracked up to be”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Food, not good. Ribs taste like smoke was poured all over to give it a wonderful taste. The banana pudding is not homemade. I was not impressed at all. Not sure how they stay in business. Never crowded.

“BBQ Treat”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

The food was really great and the portions were large enough to control the hunger pains of several teenagers and adults. Friendly service and atmosphere.

“Amazing Smoked Wings”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Excellent barbecue. Brisket is tender, smoked ribs and wings are to die for, pulled pork is flavorful, fried pickles are addictive. The service is outstanding - if you're lucky enough to see Big Al himself, you will quickly find yourself smiling and feeling at home. The restaurant is small, but well-cared for. Employees are personable and genuinely kind. It is a teensy bit on the expensive side for the portions, but we have always been happy with the quality.
