I would not have stopped here except for trip advisor reviews but food is delicious and service was excellent. Great ribs and sides. Frisked corn on the cob is an unexpected delight. Hush puppies go terrific with barbeque...I never knew. Great place for a casual dinner or for takeout back to the resort!

Ribs , Smoked wings and Pork were unbelievable... so good... looks like a dive but just really really great tasting BBQ... if you put you pants on just like everyone else this place is for you... if you think you're too cool for school... go elsewhere. Onion rings were great and the fries taste like state fair fresh cut fries.... More

I like BBQ beef and pork, so I went there knowing what I would be getting, which was the large/bounteous serving of pulled pork with my choice of two sides, plus terrific tasting thick slice of bread, all for $9.99. (I meant to ask the type of bread, but forgot.) My sides were the fried corn on the half cob... More

We didn't end up eating here, though the place looked like a dive, we were expecting good food since it had high ratings. When we entered, we ordered beverages, once seated, we looked at the menu, much different than on-line. We were looking for beef brisket- when we asked, they replied "that menu's wrong, we don't have beef". With that,... More

Not sure how you can review a restaurant without having eaten there. We do apologize for the incorrect menu online it is not our menu and we did not post it. More

Ate lunch here with friends, after being suggested by another friend. It was around 2 in the afternoon and half of the tables were filled. There was no doubt that the meat was smoked because you smelled it as soon as you got out of the car. Plus, there was oak fire wood stacked all around. I ordered the bbq... More

Had a selection of everything.....gained 5 lbs in that sitting. Recommend the full rack of ribs and the BBQ smoked chicken wings.....however I don't think you can go wrong with anything on that menu. Great Food, southern charm, and reasonable prices. Would go back in a hearbeat, just for the baked beans....

We loved this place so much that we got pork to take him and have when we got back from vacation. The food is excellent and what a value! The place I see nothing fancy and there's no liquor license. Just incredibly authentic food and sweet tea. Staff were so friendly. There were lots of regular getting food to go.... More

The food is authentic BBQ, not "grilled". Found the ribs particularly good; the only downside is the place is quite small - large groups need to go for take-out - and they can run out of food (they're not open late)
