Outside looks deceiving- a hole in the wall, run down building on the outside but a quaint amazing bbq joint on the inside. Got our order to go and we’re not disappointed.

Really not a fan of their steaks, too much spice used while grilling, dont appreciate paper plates and plastic utensils for eating steaks, and they are too expensive for all that.

Food is consistently good but Friday & Saturday nights are when to go as they have their Steak specials which are tender, juicy and delicious along with a price you can’t beat!! But Bring Cash Cause they Don’t take Credit cards!!

My husband and I always wondered why there were so many cars and trucks in the parking lot. No we know why. The ribs are the best I've eaten as is the side dishes

This place is amazing!! The ribs are the best. Cooked perfectly. They also have the best potato salad. I go here at least once a week. They’re very friendly as well.

We decided to give the place a try, and it was ok. It is cash only! My husband loved his rigs. My pork sandwich was supposed to be the small, and it was huge. I could have made two sandwiches out of one..

On Wednesday they have thick cut bone on pork chops for lunch. They season and grill them to perfection. Tender, juicy, and the perfect amount of smoke. DELICIOUS!

No, they don't. I'm sure of that. Only iced tea and soft drinks.
