The restaurant has been around for years, and the food quality has been consistant. Live music upstairs. Mexican and BBQ both equally as good.

Typical NCarolina BBQ house: delicious rustic fatty pork dishes...uncomfortable seating, hair, clothes, skin smell like Woodlands for days :)

I've found one item on the menu that *can* be excellent: the dry rubbed ribs called "Ollie's Ribs." The serving in huge and can be juicy cooked just right excellent. It can also be somewhat dried out... maybe a long time out of the smoker. The pulled pork is good, but you can get good pork BBQ at 1000 places in North Carolina. It's nothing to write home about. They always ask if you "don't mind" sitting downstairs... decline that option. The service is spotty, about average. They're more than willing to give you a drink refill in a go-cup. Prices are in line with what you'd expect, with a small increase for tourist traffic. The place could use a good cleaning, if not a complete facelift. It's trying to be rustic, but there's a difference between rustic and grimy. All that being said, I haven't found better BBQ in this county. Maybe I haven't tried hard enough.

Many locals hang out here. The prices are very reasonable and all the food is fresh. Service is not instant because each dish is prepared just for you, but the entertainment (in the upper dining room) is always fun, and the people watching is outstanding.

I will go out of my way for this BBQ. I always get the chopped pork plate. Their sides are yummy. If you haven't tried fried corn, you should! Can get busy, but worth a short wait. Live music on occasion.
