There was five of us total, one child included, service was pretty good but the food was not very good. Of the total order only two meals were edible.. very disappointed to say the least... The onion rings were soggy with grease and rolls were not edible... awful..

If you enjoy good tasting, fall off the bone Ribs, then this is the place. The food is excellent and consistent, and filling. You won't leave hungry.

We have tried this restaurant different times and every time we have found the food just ok, nothing special. Service was good, just wish the food was better.

This was the best place we ate on the trip. Great brisket and the Carolina barbecue sauce was the best. Ribs were delicious also. The waitress was outstanding. Loved it, don't miss it if you're in prestonburg!

A must have in Prestonsburg....never had a bad meal. My absolute favorite is the burger!! Although you have to wait longer for it (about 20 minutes) it's well worth it! Add loaded cheese fries too!

I've never been disappointed with the food. Great BBQ, Ribs and I love the Loaded Cheese Fries. Worth stopping if your driving through and want something different than the fast food places.

Best barbecue in eastern half of the state; above average with a good selection of sauces to choose from if you want them. There are a lot of good non-barbecue items on the menu: Chicken tenders basket is good, catfish, pig nachos, fried pickles, and grilled lettuce wedge are all good. My personal favorite is the house salad with blue... More
