The sides are tasteless or just plain awful. Even the cold slaw is yuck! Ribs are good and the sauces are okay. They had a special on brisket but evidently didn't cook enough so we had to wait 30 plus minutes until we got it.

Greeted by friendly staff. I was given a free drink as it was my first time there. Had the brisket and pulled pork plate. Meats were tasty, portions could have been larger for the price.

Staying across the street and stopped for dinner. Had a sample of most items. Pork, Brisket, Ribs and Chicken were all good. Great sides and house made sauces. I would say to give it a go!

Every time I enter this restaurant I am greeted with a smile by a happy employee. It makes me want to return frequently. I picked up some ribs, excellent, and green beans and mac and cheese for dinner. I used a reward which offset some of the cost. Great place, great employees.

Had lunch here Saturday. We both got brisket sandwiches and they were quite good. Fries here are great and I really enjoy the collard greens.

Food is great, but expensive! It is suitable for adults and families. Staff are good. Right off the highway. Close to many sights and things to d.

The service I experienced was fantastic. The workers were laid back but very serious about their job. They were quick in delivering the food. The meat was nice and hot, the sides were to die for. They all helped me find things I needed and answered all of my questions friendly. The environment felt very real, very rustic, like being... More

We usually order take out to bring back home but this time we chose to sit on the patio. Patio was pet friendly. We sat to the outside edge due to no sign. Patio is very nice size. Food great again!

If you like fast food BBQ it's ok. Few times I've been there food is Luke warm, staff is rude, overpriced.
