Just an FYI if anyone was wondering why the texture of the Cream Cheese frosting is off it is because REAL CREAM CHEESE IS NOT USED!!! ITS CREAM CHEESE EXTRACT...ICK! Yes Cream Cheese Extract is real thing

As you enter the door you're immediately in the line and you can select your beverage from the cooler before ordering your food or wait for fountain beverages when you pay. You walk past the buffet line of delicious options and a huge menu of different cuts of BBQ. The food is served directly on a parchment paper lined tray.... More

I definitely recommend the Brisket!! Super moist, super well cooked and extremely tasty! My hubby and I love to come here for a lunch out without the kids and love that we can walk away stuffed for about $20-$30 total! Oh, and don't forget the desserts!

This has become one of our FAVORITE dining out locations. The meat is always excellent. The bread pudding is almost a religious experience. It can be crowded and there will ALWAYS be a line, but they scoop, serve, and cash you out as quickly as possible. THIS is the place we take any out-of-town guests who come to visit.

I'll just start with the best. The beef brisket is incredible. You can get it moist or dry, with moist you get more marbling. This is the way I like it. The 4 Rivers tomato-based sauce is fantastic especially with this brisket. As for the pulled pork I like to get it with no sauce and use their mustard-based sauce... More

This restaurant was so fabulous that I wanted to eat there everyday. I kept getting the pulled pork. I finally got the brisket it was delicious. The sides are also out of this world. I can't say enough about this great place.

This is a real treat if you want great soul food. Brisket, pulled pork, ribs. All the sides you could ask for. Not fancy. Just GOOD food. Clean and friendly.

Read reviews & thought I'd try burnt ends Lacked the smoked flavor I expected. Perhaps I've been spoiled by KC! Nice clean large restaurant. Plenty of parking Huge selection of specialty sodas in case by serving line. There was a line but moved very fast. Had BBQ beans which were excellent. 2 types if sauce on the table Will try... More

Saw this place in a magazine and thought we'd check it out. The staff who greeted us were really friendly, explained the menu well and helped me with gluten free options. It's like a Subway for BBQ! Quick and easy! We had both types of brisket, both were amazing, and the baked beans which are out of this world and... More
