Excellent BBQ and great side items This location is not a full service restaurant. I highly recommend the pork plate with sides

Had a nice Barbeque lunch. Good food, good service. Two lunches cost close to $25 which I thought was a little steep.

......but the prices are high for the portions. The set up is crowded and paying $24 for two people to eat a sandwich, fries, and a drink off styrofoam trays and plastic utensils is ridiculous. I would guess they will be in trouble if another barbeque place opens in the area.

The barbecue here is pretty good. Not the best but still really good. I have eaten here several times and will go back again for barbecue.

This is a place we like to visit. However, while I was sitting outside today. I couldn't help but notice the number of people that stumbled over the concrete lip just outside the front door. After making a trip to the trash can on the parking side before going back inside. I forgot about everyone else stumbling over it and... More

My husband and I often go to this area to research family history. We decided to stop and give th BBQ a try here at this restaurant. Bad choice! My husband ordered for both of us because you have to order at the counter and then they will bring it out to you. First off, it is in an old... More

I just can't get on board with their BBQ. It just is not good in my opinion but I'm very picky when it comes to BBQ. The do have pretty tasty biscuits for breakfast though.

I've driven by this place a few times while passing through on various trips and have never had time to stop until yesterday, 11-6-16. It came HIGHLY recommended. We got there just before the church crowd rolled in for lunch. Glad we did, got very busy fast. The place looks awesome. I LOVE that "hole in the wall", "BBQ joint",... More

Ate breakfast for the first time because I love their BBQ. Biscuits were awesome, Country Friend steak was great and so was the Country ham and egg biscuit. Unfortunately for me, they were extremely busy or backed up in the kitchen(seemed like they were training someone or something), so I waited 20 minutes and my food was cold. I'd still... More
