Very down to earth atmosphere with just the best quality of slow-cooked BBQ around. I would recommend the pork ribs, brisket, pulled pork, pretty much everything is delicious!
Bonus: if you are feeling adventurous, you can try the Man-Handler: 1/2 lb burger + 1/2 lb pulled pork + bacon

Decided to give this place a try after reading previous reviews. Made reservations about 2 hours in advance. It was 6p when we arrived and we were seated within 2 min. Great catfish appetizer to start off along with sweet tea. Ribs, brisket and chicken were tender and moist. Excellent cornbread. Quick, efficient and friendly service.

Serivce, 3 stars average, was a tad slow, especially on our beer order. By slow I mean she forgot and after we reminded her our delicious beers came. Also why seat so many small 2s and 3s in big booths. We had a group of 5 and were smashed in a corner half booth.

The food. 5 stars Amazing. Brisket was excellent, nicely cut and perfectly smoked. Pulled pork is in line with the best out there, my favorite of the meal. The ribs are fantastic as well. Lots of meat, would order those again for sure.

The baked beans get their own paragraph. Who ever came up with this recipe needs a lifetime of free beer. 100% the best baked beans you will find anywhere.

Food servings were perfect, would be called large for the average person. I finished my plate and was beyond stuffed.

We had an awesome dinner here- the food was terrific and we were very pleased with the service. They also had a good beer selection. Best to arrive early though; we were able to get seated immediately on a Monday night at 5:30, but as we were leaving at 6:30, there was about 10 people waiting for a table.

We stopped for lunch in the early afternoon on a Sunday. It was busy and there was a wait but we were seated pretty quickly. The menu is simple and what you would expect from a BBQ joint. My girlfriend ordered an iced tea and it was huge. She also ordered the beef brisket and put on her own sauce provided on the table. All the sauces are good, the spicy is for real so be aware. The BBQ mustard was a delicious option we had never experienced. I had the ribs and they were fall off the bone style and more than just delicious. Wow.
The bill was reasonable, what you would expect. Good eats, cool place. Worth a try.
