Simple roadside BBQ joint serving outstanding smoked meats. Hoos sauce is a great vinegar based sauce. Just enough zip and a bit of tang. Great complement to the rib meat or the pork. (Just haven't tried the other) Not very excited by the Mac and...More

No window dressing here, just straight-up good BBQ. The meat is smoked fresh every day. Choice of four sauces. A nice bonus, the french fries are the best in town. We've gotten take out for large groups a couple of times, never been disappointed. They're...More

This little place doesn't look like much from outside but don't sell it short because the groceries are not only good but they give big portions. Friendly folks run it, primarily as take out but there are a couple out door picnic tables.

Love the BBQ at Hoo's (both the pork and chicken are great). The mac and cheese and baked beans are also out of this world.

I can't understand how some people would give some of the bad reviews about this place. This is the best BBQ I have ever had and the folks are so friendly with great customer service. Guess some people you can never please. I will keep...More

I've heard good things but was extremely disappointed by the quality of the food and cleanliness of the establishment. The food was very dry, seemed overcooked. The sauces were good, but certainly not the best we've had locally.

As a pair of tourists from England we had Hoo's BBQ recommended to us and so popped in for lunch. The smell outside was mouthwatering, so make sure you sit by the smoker where the meat is cooked for 24 hours. I had the lunch...More

Hoo's BBQ is a Mom & Pop BBQ restaurant established in 2013. All items are homemade and made fresh daily. We smoke all of our meats on our stick smoker and all sides and sauces are made in house daily. We cook like we're cooking for our family and if it's not good enough for them, it's not good enough for you. Why not stop by Hoo's and try us out!!
