“Excellent ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Good food, As long as Ambiance isn't important to you. The pork ribs were tender and tasty. Barbecue beans sweet and tasty. Barbecue slaw not my cup of tea. Waitresses were very friendly and attentive.

“Great BBQ, cheap & big selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This place draws a big crowd & I can see why. Not fancy, basically like eating on a patio with a roof on it. Very good authentic BBQ, fast friendly service & reasonable prices. Good spot for a quick lunch.

“Good spot if you are stuck in Spartanburg”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Finding ourselves in Spartanburg and staying in a hotel right beside this restaurant we decided to try some southern BBQ. The young waitress was a pleasure to deal with - fun and friendly and really made the experience. The food was ok but not great. Had the BBQ and rib combo consisting of shredded pork, BBQ beans, coleslaw and hush puppies. The ribs were bland as was the BBQ sauce. The beans, coleslaw and hush puppies were all good but nothing to write home about. If you are in the area and have a craving for BBQ try this place out - if you don't have really high expectations you may not be let down.

“Very different and very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

I've been told "there is no good bbq in South Carolina -- it's all vinegar based chopped pork"

Well I like to try things and see for myself. I've had vinegar based BBQ before, but never in SC, its home. So I stopped here to give it a go.

Well, what can I say? I'm converted. The stuff was great! These folks know what they're doing.

The staff was very friendly, and the waitress was especially charming and attentive. We will be back, and it can't be soon enough!
