Our party of six ate dinner on a Monday. Among us, we had a variety of ribs, pork, beef, sausage, spicy sausage, slaw, potato salad, fries, and beans. Everyone ate with gusto and enjoyed their food. The portions are generous; NO ONE left hungry. This is good, plain, well-made BBQ meats, served generously for an extremely good price. A bargain.... More

This restaurant has pretty good barbecue. They have a wide selection of meats and sides. They also offer different options for barbecue sauces. I was pleased with the speed of service and quality of food. It is definitely a place worth visiting. However, if you are on a diet that does not include meat, this would not be a great... More

If you're on a road trip through Missouri on I44 and tired of the name brand fast food places that litter the expressways, try this gem of a bbq joint that cooks right on their premises. Tasty BBQ. Favorites are the chicken, pulled pork and ribs. Located right off of exit 163.

You can do worse, much worse. Food is solid. Nothing great, but not bad either. Fried Potato is a great option if looking for something different from the typical French fries.

Always have it when I visit. Always consistent quality. I favor the chicken no sauce. Beef is tender and juicy.

As always the service is quick and efficient. My favorite is a pulled pork sandwich with the potato slices. I watched this family build this building and then expand it. Check out the coins in the flooring!
