I have patronized Lark's for years and it only gets better. I have always had a 'love affair' with the RIB TIP and CHICKEN combo. Larks' barbecue sauce is second to none. In the New Year I have discovered their CATFISH dinner or the CATFISH sandwich. It's a WINNER! Also, I appreciate the prompt and professional service I receive when... More

I'd heard of larks for years but had always gone to piggin n grinnin. I decided to give them a shot. The shredded pork sandwich was good, for sure, but I'm still a bigger fan of piggin n grinnin. My husband's chicken breast sandwich still had the bone in it, which was confusing. Larks was very clean and nice decor... More

My wife and I stopped by here to try the Ribs after finding out Charlie's was closed part of the week for winter hours. She ordered the baby back and I ordered the regular ribs. The order took about 10 minutes which I didn't think was bad considering that we also ordered sides and those were made to order. I... More

Really good BBQ, good price, nice staff. They frequently take a food truck to local events and there's always a line. The sauce is on the sweet side, so I get it on the side.

Love stopping at bbq joints to check out my competition...food was average...wife had chicken breast and I had ribs. It was tasty. The Mac and cheese wasn't that good at all for old school taste....all and all I would rate it a 6 out of 10.

Six of us ate here for dinner. They had smokers outside where the meat was cooked. We ate pork, chicken, hamburger, shrimp, & a hot dog. All was good. Liked the choice of hot or mild sauce. Clean dining area. Only complaint: choice of drinks not posted anywhere. Had to ask.

A nicely varied menu and generous portions of great tasting food. What more could you ask for? We usually get ours to go so I can't comment on service in the dining room. Service seems slow when you walk in off the street and order. But you can call ahead and place your order.
