“Generous portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We stopped here for lunch on a business trip. It was clean and friendly and easy to find. The selection is great if you like BBQ. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was flavorful smokey and tender just the way it should be. Be sure to grab a fork because this sandwich is spilling out all over.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch.

“The best Bar-b-que!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We've had BBQ in Memphis and the "best" in all over the south and this is our favorite. The rub is kinda peppery, which I like, not sweet at all. All their meats are good, but the pulled pork and the ribs are the best. I like the "hot" sauce on the side. The meat really doesn't need the sauce because it is that good. The sides aren't as good as other places, but the Smokehouse Combo with ribs and one or two other meats leaves little room for veggies. The prices are inexpensive, but have been going up. A great convenient, casual place.

“Fantastic food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

The food was amazing, but I didn't like the "cafeteria" style instead of a "sit down service" style.

“Excellent food, quick service, good prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is our first visit to this location, but we are regular customers of their location in Decatur and Glendale Heights, Illinois (they have 7 or 8 locations around the Midwest.) Conveniently located right next to the Interstate. They have a drive-up window but we like to go inside to see what's happening. Stopped in at 4:30 on a Thursday for carryout, the location was pretty empty, the TVs were on, volume level was acceptable, and the staff was very friendly and eager to take our order. Ordered two of the 3-meat specials, which is what we usually get (good for 2 nights meals). Took the food back to our hotel 10 minutes away. Food was hot, fresh and tasty, and well worth the $32 total. Order extra cornbread, it's very good. I highly recommend the place and will definitely stop there again on my next visit.

I had the pulled pork sandwich. Was very good and filling. Drive thru is nice to pick something up when you are in a hurry.
