Stopped by for lunch while at Bass Pro. Small restaurant. Very good barbeque. Service was very personable. Will return.

Best ribs by far. Ribs were flavorful and so tender. I'm looking forward to returning. Located across the street from Bass Pro - what could be more convenient!

My friends had ribs and were quite happy with them. I had smoked turkey breast and was expecting actual meat off a real turkey...instead it was deli-style turkey slices that didn't taste smokey at all. Skip the turkey and stick with what they're good at...pork. Staff was very friendly.

When you are in Springfield at lunch or dinner time, you should try 1 of the best BBQ places in the area. It is a large place with lots of seating and parking. The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches are great. Prices are reasonable and the food is better than most of the other places in the city.
