Drove by this place many times until someone suggested trying the wings out. We did just that a few weeks back. We ordered the family dinner w brisket and wings. We got a huge portion for the 3 of us. It was very good. When you drive-up to the place it doesn't look as though it should be in business.... More

We went to jc's on a recommendation and was totally disappointed. My 8 year old daughter and wife had the chicken and it was very dry. I had the beef brisket sandwich and it was cold and very tough. The beans were good and that was it.place was totally empty at 5:30pm. You will be disappointed if you eat there.

Have been going here for many years, usually get takeout the BBQ is always been very good and consistent. Favorite is the pulled pork never overpowered with smoke and has great flavor. The bake beans are very tasty as is the mac and cheese. Would highly recommend this place much better than our local chain BBQ establishments

Decided to stop in when in Melbourne based on the positive reviews. The totally empty parking lot at prime lunch time on a Saturday should have been a give away. After talking with the order taker and the cook (who also seemed to be the owner/manager) we ordered the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and beans for me and the... More

We had some promotional coupons for this place and we wanted to be adventurous so we went here for dinner. What a find! Do not let the location or the throwback appearance put you off. The food is fantastic. My wife and I ordered the ribs, a half rack for her and a full rack for me. We both left... More

We are regulars and can't say enough to about it. Everything tastes great. We even catered our rehearsal dinner with their BBQ. The ribs are my personal favorite followed by the pulled pork! Yum

The area of this place is a little sketch with lots of dollar marts and pawn shops. This place has excellent barbecue and sides. It is a very clean and cute place. Super fast and good service as well

I applaud the proprietors of this establishment. I suspect these are hardworking Americans, probably veterans, who got good at bar-b-que and decided to open a BBQ joint. Thaaaank you! This is the type of establishment that handcrafts their food. This is the secret spot, the local joint, those hidden treasures of dining that everyone hopes to find. This is a... More
