Great brisket, onion rings and pickles. Arrive early as this is a small diner with awesome food. You can order take out but you miss the John Wayne decorations and helpful staff.

This place was recommended to us by the locals and it was good for a low key barbecue place. We had the pork and beef ribs, with potato salad, corn, coleslaw, beans and of course sweet tea. We also had the coconut pie. Honestly, it...More

As most write, Vic's BBQ is top choice. I had the turkey and wow - mouthwatering. A colleague had the brisket with a similar result. The service is a bit brash and substandard but you cannot get better BBQ in my opinion. And the price...More

Just a small local place with outstanding BBQ. The staff is friendly and courteous, the facility clean yet simple and the food is delicious. The prices are low. I had a tremendous brisket lunch for under $15. The home style sides included baked beans, green...More

Vic's is great for breakfast tacos or fabulous barbeque. Their ribs rock as well as their brisket. We sometimes go there twice in a day from the office. I love the staff - a little surly sometimes but always ready to laugh!
