Although I have eaten there in the past and its been very good my last trip there was for ribs. My ribs were very dry. I sent them back and they replaced them with another rack that was slightly better but still not the way...More

It's tough to choose between sides, one could probably make a meal just on sides alone. Pulled pork sandwich was solid and mac and cheese tasty. I love the fact they serve Heislers' Ice Cream. As a native "Skook", it's the only place in the...More

That was then, this is now. Not sure if owner changed. Brisket used to be good, now it's all fat. Won't be going back.

Thanks Joe! I'm sure you know that brisket has two parts, the flat which is lean and the point which has a much higher fat content. If you prefer lean just let us know and we'll cut it for you.

I literally felt nauseous after eating a small amount of their pulled pork. We used to go here weekly. I called and let them know. They offered to do nothing. I would have appreciated a refund but instead I threw out $20 worth of food....More

The business changed hands ten months ago and has received great reviews since. We're sorrry the pork didn't agree with you but we served thirty five pork sandwiches that day everyone else was happy. Please stop in and ask for Chuck or Brandon.

First time via recommendation from friends. Pulled pork very tasty and the 1/2 lb. burger was done to perfection. A few hints -- French Fries are homemade and delicious -- but a regular size is more than enough to share. Consider a request for moderate...More

This place serves some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten! I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a place to go, both friends and family friendly. The prices are very reasonable as well. Everything is homemade, even the BBQ sauces.

Ate here for the first time on Fathers Day and the food was excellent. They had a steady stream of customers eating in and taking out meals. The brisket is excellent and my wife had the pulled pork which she also loved. Good food and...More

We had Sunday lunch here. The restaurant is all by itself amongst homes, not in a plaza. Parking is plentiful. As soon as you exit your car you can smell the meat smoking. There are a few picnic tables under cover on the front porch....More

This was our second time here, so I knew what to expect - a VERY long wait, which caused me to take away one point. The food is excellent, especially the fries! I took another point away for the lack of selection and the dirty...More
