The folks here really know how to make bar-b-q! Everything from chicken, pork, beef, brisket, etc. is on the menu. They also have a marinated pork that is to die for! The sides are also exceptional. Love their baked beans.

Stopped in before the lunch crowd and was pleasantly surprised. Quick and friendly service and good food. The Mac and cheese tasted like my mom's. Loved the shoestring fries and perfect amount of seasoning. Sweet and spicy BBQ sauce was the right amount of each...More

Went for lunch while attending a convention. The prices were reasonable (although my credit card was charged 4 times for the same lunch.) The bar-b-que pork was average in taste and size was good.

Had Rib Tips and they were almost inedible. About 1/3 fat and the meat was so overcooked it was like eating shoe leather. A real shame because the sauces were excellent

The best chicken I have tasted. The sauces are great (of course the Georgia sauce is m favorite---- since I am from GA) The green beans tasted like my grandmother's. The staff (especially the cook) was very friendly.

Great quick place to grab a bite to eat for lunch. If you're a pork eater, definitely get the green beans that are flavored with the smoked pork.
