Was not sure what kind of place this was when we went in and found it to be kind of self service. That aside, the menu had enough variety and the barbeque was very good. Since you are basically going through a cafeteria line ordering...More

Good food no complaints. It's not great but, it's okay for the price. Pretty standard grab a tray order your food off a wall menu and service yourself. Occasionally someone gets you a refill. Which is fine with me honestly I'd rather get my own...More

I love a good bbq place. The food was good but not great. Portion size was small and prices were a little high. Not a bad place for lunch. It was clean and service was good.

We go here often! Love all the BBQ selections but the horseshoe is amazing!!! I'm not a horseshoe fan but tried this once and I'm hooked! It's my "go to" favorite! The pulled pork nachos are a close second. So good and so much food....More

Excellent barbeque food. My favorite is the smoked turkey. They advertise as real Texas barbeque. If you've ever been to a Dickies Bbq in Texas or anywhere south, the menu is very similar.
