Was in the area for work and the locals suggested this place to have lunch. If the locals eat there, that is a good sign. The chopped BBQ was very good. On a personal note, the cole slaw had way to much black pepper for...More

Lots of choices in the bbq menu make this a good restaurant to visit. Only open until 8pm in the evening, so come early if you're going to dinner. The pulled pork is seasoned well, the hushpuppies cooked well but not outstanding, and if you...More

This BBQ place is amazing! The food is awesome, the prices are reasonable and the wait staff is the friendliest you will find anywhere! The BBQ Slaw and the Hush-puppies are a MUST TRY!

The BBQ was good. Not the best. Our food came cold. Not really a clean place. The hours are scattered. Open one day, closed the next. Never seems busy. Not our favorite

All I can say is, ignoring reviews who mentioned dirt, I went anyway. The lettuce on my sandwich had black grime on it. I took it off my sandwich and didn't make a stink to the waitress. I didn't suffer any ill effects from eating...More
