If ever craving pure protein and you don't mind getting a little messy, this is the place to go. I actually prefer going here in the cold, dreary time of the year since they create a 'warmer' southern feel inside the eatery. By far my favorite is the beef brisket - only downside is they don't really offer it as a solo choice for a meal.

We have never had a bad meal here. They have lots & lots of choices from salads to barbeque ribs.

I believe it is Tuesday nights they have their dinner for 2 on special. It comes on a metal garbage can lid & has very yummy barbeque food to sample (chicken, ribs, pulled pork along with cole slaw, baked beans & corn on the cob. And of course their famous delicious corn muffins.)

Love the atmosphere here.
Service is always great.

We got there after the lunch crowd was gone. The waitress didn't know the menu very well. The food came fairly quickly, but we didn't receive everything we were supposed to and unfortunately didn't think about it until after we were on the road later. it also took a long time for the check to arrive and a long time to get the manager to talk to us about another issue. we've eaten there before and this was the worst experience we've had. Hopefully it will be better next time.

Meh..the bbq sauce is pretty good especially considering that I personally like the sweet but don't want the heat. The rib meat itself is not good at all. Amateurs like me with Webers can do far better. I went here shortly after they first opened when I was in high school and never went back until tonight. Honestly, I'm fine with another fifteen years in between.
