Average BBQ joint. I had a pulled pork sandwich combo with coleslaw. The meat tasted good, but it lacked a Smokey flavor and almost seemed like it may have been cooked in a crock pot. Sauce was okay, not sure if it's made in house...More

I generally dislike BBQ but my brother suggested it and I was too hungry to argue over destination. This place is definitely a hole in the wall, no bones about it. The sandwiches are served with just a dollop of sauce on the bun, and...More

Very, very casual restaurant. You order and pick up order yourself. Lots of seating for large and small groups. Service was just so,so. Not very personable or friendly. In an industrial part of city. Food was not very good. All of us had indigestion afterwards....More

Had brisket for lunch. I don't eat buns usually so I ate just the meat. Marginal at best, lots of fat, tasteless and the bun which I didn't eat was like a wonderbread sandwich. Waste of time and money.

My husband and I visited this establishment on the recommendation from AAA in our travel book. This was your typical roadside dive that usually proves to be a nice surprise. BUT we were disappointed instead! They did serve generous portions but what makes a great...More

Pork sandwich was smoky clean and tasty. Sauce is Memphis style and pretty sweet. Mac and cheese was excellent. Plus they have RC on fountain. I was passing through on business but was very satisfied except for the few flys that buzzed around.
