“Where's the flavor?”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

I've never been to a BBQ before where you had to specifically ask for sauce. They won't ask- so if you don't specifically tell them, you won't get any on your food. Besides that, the food tastes fresh and well-made, they just don't seem to use ANY spices or flavorings whatsoever. Very plain food, and only acceptable prices. If they either dropped the price or upped the food quality, they'd stand out. As it is, they're just poised to be unmemorable- except for the lack of sauce!

“Great food warm and friendly staff”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

No matter what time of day the staff at Earls has got your food ready in a efficient and timely manner. Their dedication to making sure your food is good no matter what is their goal. Whether it be take out or dining in you get great food and great service. Give them a call.

“Average Food, Terrible Service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

We ate there around 11:30 on a Saturday, so not too crowded. I'd rate my food 3 stars - the beef and okra were good, the pork was cold and fatty, and the curly fries were cold. I'd rate the service 1 star - the girl working behind the counter clearly wanted to be somewhere else...she was annoyed that we were even bothering her to place an order, and was more annoyed when we asked a question about the menu. After our food was delivered, we requested another small plate...our server brought us one, and it had dried food all over it...she had to have seen it, but didn't care. We took it back to the counter and had to deal with the original cashier/order taker, she was even more annoyed that we dared to bring back a dirty plate for a clean one.

“Food is great but server was outta line”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

My wife and kids went there about a year ago for some BBQ. While they were there the server kept hitting in my wife in front of our kids I think his name was Tim. I know every time we have gone there the food is outstanding but waiters with over active hormones aren't acceptable.
