“top of the line que, top of the world sauce!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

tastylicious all the way around. i think it would be a 10 judging form the sauce alone. great red slaw and hush puppies for the great north state enhances they ribs, chicken and pork. sausage is well above average and a rarity is found here. we cannot wait to return! service is friendly. affable, and sincere.

Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Went based on trip advisor ratings. Couldn't have had better food. Ribs and chicken top notch. Sides also good. Must have the hush puppies. Service was amazing. Absolutely a must if in the spartanburg area!

“Best of Western Carolina BBQ”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

They have several sauces to choose from, but we like the western sweet sauce so were very pleased. We got the combo plate and the sauce that came on the ribs made them very juicy and the best of our Carolina experiences. You add whichever flavor sauce you want to the pulled pork. The hush puppies were bready and we really enjoyed them. This is our new standard so we'll keep traveling and comparing.

“Excellent Q”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We lucked into finding this place via the near me now TA option. We were hunting Carolina BBQ as we were passing through the state. Love all the regional variations.

I was a little leary of the decor when we arrived, but was pleasantly surprised. Our server was friendly and hospitable. She kept the sweet tea flowing, and it conveniently came in a to go cup. The food was quickly served, we were in and out which was great for a pit stop.

I tried Brunswick stew for the first time, it was a little spicy and very flavorful. The hush puppies and fried okra were really good and worth all the extra calories. We had the chopped BBQ (their specialty). This was my first time having mustard sauce. Portions were large, we could have shared... But it made a great midnight snack! Wish we had room to try the banana pudding.

Prices were reasonable. If we pass that way again, we will definitely stop back in.

“THIS is by far the best BBQ in the State of SC ...... Chris, Columbia, SC”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

There is NO comparison...... this is the best BBQ in the State of SC ...... I have ate at ALL of the BBQ in recommended BBQ in the State of SC ........ This is the One i would highly recommend IF you Like a the Vinegar based BBQ ....... very moist with a very great smokey wood taste that you will not get anywhere with a mustard based BBQ .......

The huspuppies are OK, not great, (not as good as Bridges in Shelby, NC) and their BBQ Slaw is fantastic.

I have friends from Columbia drive to pick up pounds of this stuff. Wish he had a spot here.
