Hands down the best barbecue in the whole world. Recommend the sliced plate (sliced into bite sized pieces). Brunswick stew is excellent. They also understand that barbecue was meant to be eaten with white bread. You can smell it two blocks away - do yourself...More

Stopped because we read reviews, this was the worst bbq and slaw that we have ever had. Meat was very overcooked and nasty.

I had the Barbecue Sandwich. I know thats not fancy but the sandwich and a bag or chips were exactly what I wanted. They have plates with sides and all kinds of stuff on the menu but I went for the Barbecue.

Super tender bbq pork with unique mustard based sauce. It was wonderful. The place is old and outdated but you don't eat the atmosphere. Go for the BBQ and you will likely go out of your way to get back there from time to time....More
