This que is better than most. Wife and I had pulled pork, pulled chicken with sides of corn casserole, collard greens, cole slaw, and mac and cheese. All were very good except that the corn was a little doughy. I thought that the mac and...More

We really loved the pulled pork, not greasy at all, and all of the different sauces we could try. However, it would be nice to have an explanation of what's offered before one gets to the counter. It's a bit confusing for newcomers.

Delicious BBQ, real BBQ. Skip the sauce, the meat is delicious alone. Also had cole slaw, made the traditional way (no mayo). I ordered 5 ribs - a bit much for this older lady. You can order by the rib and 3 - 4 would...More

I don't know why it took me so long to try this--I did at the recommendation of a local who you could tell liked his BBQ. He was raving. I see why. The ribs were divine and they have enough sauces to satisfy ANY taste....More
