As far as BBQ places go it's passable as a clean cookie cutter restaurant but it's BBQ specialty which is supposed to be ribs lacks a lot to be desired. They are nothing like the original from which the whole chain gets its name.More

The food was good, but not the best BBQ I had during my month in Montgomery. This is a place that has both atmosphere and good food. The places with the amazing BBQ don’t worry about having a flashy building in downtown. Overall. It was...More

Super clean and friendly. I recently had oral surgery and got some mushy sides and chocolate pie. I tried my daughters bbq and it was delicious and moist. But that chocolate pie is life😍More

This place is known for their BBQ, but I was not impressed. It was OK, but nothing to write home about. I wish I had tried their hamburger, as that looked pretty good.More

The pulled pork and chicken were very good, but not the best I have ever had. The potato salad was delicious, but the baked beans were just so so. They were also out of several items due to a large catering event.

I don't think they have beef. They do have chicken and turkey options.
