The BEST BBQ I have ever had, but the most amazing thing is the price and portions. The THREE MEAT PLATTER could have fed our family of 4, and the green menace (PULL PORK WRAP) was HUUUUUGE. Just saying we will be having left overs for dinner. I hear it’s only open on Thursday and Friday so make the time for the pit stop. BEST BBQ I have ever had. The atmosphere is fun and inviting, but if you are into fancy and proper maybe not your spot. Great service!

Great food ! The double smoked burnt ends are outstanding but you cannot go wrong with any meat selection. The beans are worth a stop here alone and i'm not usually a fan. An honorable mention goes to the cornbread, so often a forgettable item at many otherwise outstanding BBQ establishments. The hours here vary with season, so check ahead. I've not eaten there but opt for take out as there is rarely room in the limited seating.

The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The double smoked burnt ends were fantastic. Normally I can take or leave cornbread but this was the best cornbread I’ve ever had. So glad I happened to be in the area when they were open.

I can see why they are top 10 in the US, the food is amazing. The platters are the best value, can't go wrong with any meat you pick it is all good, the sides are amazing too. They are not open some days though due to their catering schedule so just be aware and sometimes the line is pretty crazy. There are some picnic tables outside to eat but I usually just grab and go. The 1-2 meat platter is the best choice as you sample a bit of everything. Make sure to grab more than 1 sauce as the containers are small. The quantity of food you get for the price is really good, there is usually 2 meals in one togo box. Staff are friendly and love to crack jokes and are clearly loving their job!
