Visited during business trip to Tuscaloosa. Classic BBQ joint with no frills and good food. Their menu is more than jut BBQ. I had large mixed dinner with ribs and pork. 3 ribs were meaty with a good bark. Good smoke flavor and not too much sauce. Pork was as good as it gets. It is placed on slices of... More

Get there early. It's not big. 3 booths, 5 tables and a bar, but the 'cue is fantastic. Be warned: the large pork plate is actually 3 sandwiches with white bread. I made it through 2-1/2. Best eaten with a fork. The sauce is vinegar based and very good to dip bread in. Meat falls off the ribs.

If you are wanting to get in and out in less than 45 minutes, forget it. Also, usually when someone gets an order to go, you would think they want in and out in a reasonable time. Not here. I had to walk out today. I am the third person in line and waited 10 min to place my order... More

Great little BBQ joint. Fall off the bone ribs and pulled pork had a terrific smoky flavor. Coleslaw had unique sweet taste. Service was friendly and attentive like I like. 5 stars, a good stop if your hungry for BBQ.

After reading your recommendations, We stopped in for lunch while traveling to Atlanta. The outside of the restaurant looked old and run down, but it had good reviews so in we went. The ambiance has much to be desired and the unisex restroom needs cleaning and updates for sure. We were seated by a friendly waitress and given the menus.... More

Visited here with my wife, and we were pleased. A good place if you are interested in some quality BBQ. Can't say it was the best we've ever had, but still worth the visit. Great service as well!

Let start with this, the service is great and very attentive. The ribs was pretty good, tender tasty and smokey flavor. The pork was cold and greasy, not good at all. Mc n cheese was very good and collard greens was awesome. In fact I ordered another serving of greens this time large. Nice atmosphere and they make you feel... More

This is a very humble restaurant from the perspective of the building itself. However, the food is a different story. We came to enjoy some good ol' barbeque not to eat at a fancy restaurant. We were not disappointed. Their sauce is tangy and tart... it must have vinegar and mustard. It is not a sweet barbeque. I had the... More

This is one of the most authentic Barbeque restaurants in the south. Pulled pork, smoked mac 'n cheese, and amazing baked beans too the menu. We have dined there may times as well as used them for catering. It's as good as it gets.
