You could not imagine a more archetypal roadside BBQ than this, unless it was still Named Huckleberry's, as it once was. I get ribs each time I stop, so I can't tell you about the other meats.

Their briscuit (beef plate) was tender and jucy. Pulled pork was really good also. Nothing fancy so we ate there 1 time and the second time we placed a to go order and took it back to the motel room.

Clean, casual, and the ribs are excellent. I'll be going back for more. Friendly service and fair prices, with good serving size. Lots of sides to choose from.

Consistently superb. They have a steady business of locals and the occasional passers by, such as us. We discovered this place a few years ago and we learned that Sonny, of Sonny's BBQ had once stopped by and declared the BBQ excellent.
