If you are on Highway 70 about 35 minutes before Indiana and 35 minutes from Effingham, IL then this stop in Greenup, IL should be considered.

Stopped here off of I70. Looked like a good BBQ place. It is. Worth the stop. Pulled pork and pulled chicken was great. Might stop here on our way back to try the brisket.

Didn't expect much to be honest, as this place is in the middle of nowhere... but wow! Happened in on all-you-can-eat rib night... left stuffed with some fantastic ribs! If you're passing through, stop here!

It was good food for the price. The Service was fast and polite. Could have more selection on the bread like cornbread and other yummys.

The food was not all that good. I had a sample platter of ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and cole slaw. The ribs were OK, they were done, meaning you could... More

A quick stop off on highway 70 for some barbecue and a rest. We all had the pulled pork sandwiches. Quite good. My parents had the fruit cobbler for dessert. Good food, friendly service and reasonably priced.

Thank Spiritwolf922
