I went once and wasn't super impressed but am so glad I came back! The bbq was much better so maybe it was an off day earlier. The slaw is quite sweet/different but good. I had a salad and fruit for sides to be a...More

I had the chopped pulled pork combination. It was good, but I've had better tastier barbecue. The big bean side dish was very sweet and tasty. For the money I thought it would have been better so I only gave it 4 stars

Great place to eat, even the barn style atmosphere ads to the experience. We had the bbq and ribs and they were great. BBQ had nice texture and the ribs had plenty of meat on the bones with that smoky wood flavor

Although this place is known for its bbq pork, my favorite is the pit cooked turkey. I love the collards when available. They give massive portions. Highly recommend.
