BBQ is good but I tend to belch it up all afternoon, I am guessing they use some liquid smoke in the sauce. This time I think the slaw was starting to go bad, if you know what I mean. Previous visits were fine.

One of the best barbecue places around. I prefer take out since I don't care for the sauce but still award 5 stars for great barbecue.

Sweet southern hospitality and delicious food. The ribs were amazing and budget friendly. Unlike another comment I read they did have sweet tea during my visit.

Very good BBQ meat and the sauce is great! The ribs are not baby-back, just regular pork ribs but they are meaty and excellent! Service can be very slow and sometimes on to-go orders, the cashier seems as if he does not want to be...More
