“Delicious BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Had a great lunch here recently with my family. The barbecue flavor is excellent. Friendly and fast service. Clean dining room and reasonable prices. I think the barbecue here is better than other places in town. I will return, that's for sure.

“Solid Lexington Style BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

The BBQ here is not the absolute best Lexington style chopped pork, not even in Winston, but it is solid, and they do a number of other things very well, and have for years, and the service is always good, even when it is crowded, as it was today at lunch.

The pork comes out of the kitchen in a medium chop, and sauced too much for my taste - so I always ask them not to sauce my order. The result is a much drier product that I can sauce to my taste. I have found this to be true much more often with Lexington and Western style sauces than with Eastern because of the inherent sweetness in those sauces which will mask the pork taste.

Now the pork here lacks smokiness, and this is becoming more and more commonplace as cooking over wood coals is increasingly abandoned for electric or gas cookers. But properly sauced, this is not a bad version, and makes a more than decent sandwich.

The hush puppies are good, they offer both versions of slaw here, and I find both nice. The fries are the crinkled kind, but here they get them crisp, and salt them properly right out of the oil.

They make an excellent Southern style chili dog, loaded with a meaty, tasty chili on a nice quality wiener. I would come here strictly for the hot dog. Their fried chicken is also outstanding - lightly coated, fried crisp, and perfectly seasoned with a nice amount of salt and pepper

They offer some good sides as well. The Fried Squash is always fixed fresh, and fried perfectly. The Fried Okra is from frozen, but is a nice item, fried well, and both of these are properly seasoned. And their home made cobblers are worth the calories

Now this is not the cheapest place in town, but you get good value, excellent food, and nice, friendly service. It is a family place, so there will be some noise from the young crowd, especially on the weekends.
