We split a rack of smoked ribs and glad we did. We each had six of the most mouth watering, drop off of the bone large ribs. Wasn't sure if that would be enough since we hadn't eaten all day. But sure enough, it was...More

We ate here Saturday, and I thought it was the best brisket I had ever tasted. Very nice people as well. The slaw is vinegary and very good. Only disappointment is we were there at noon on Saturday, but the ribs wouldn't be ready until...More

Was excited to try based on others reviews but disappointed. Had a pulled pork sandwich and pit beans. Beans were very good. Pork was extremely fatty and not much flavor.More

The ribs (falling off the bone) and sausage were very nicely done. The rib tips were a little overdone and not hot. Ensure they heat things up fully. The sides we had, coleslaw, tater salad and beans were good. Nothing was over seasoned. Owner was...More
