“Good BBQ”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The ribs are really good and the brisket sandwich was really good. It's at a gas station so not great atmosphere but if casual is what you want it's fine

The manager at Baymont recommended your restaurant to us and we all enjoyed it. The food was great and the atmosphere was homey.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great service and food! Had a very personable server (think he was the bartender) who was very informative and entusiastic about the menu. I had brisket with zucchini fries and cole slaw - DELICIOUS! My hum band had brisket and ribs with beans. He loved it. A little hard to find. Worth the call to ask for directions!

“Don't miss this funky little place!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Great food, funky place. We had the brisket, pulled pork, Mac and cheese and the Rig - all were amazing and the service is friendly. We choses this place largely because we want to choose local spots over say Applebee's and Chili's. We loved the funky vibe of this place. It wasn't what I imagined from the other reviews - used to be a service station and they played off of that with the decor.

“Good Q”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

A little hard to locate even tho it is in plain site. Ribs were a bit undersized but with lots of meat. Good dry rub, not overly salty. Good house made BBQ sauce with several different sauces availble. My partner had the Chicken and declared it GOOD! The baked beans were out of a can but doctored (in a good way) the slaw and potato salad were also tastey. It is worth a stop if you are in the area
