I stopped by with family for just a snack. Both of us had the 4 piece smoked wings with a drink. They were excellent! Wish I lived closer so I could try out their other offerings. Service was quick and the food came right out. If the rest of their food taste's half as good as their smoked wings, they... More

We eat here often...The food and service is excellent and consistant with their other locations. The pork and sides are excellent...We also like the Smokey Dogs as well as the Smokey Wings. I wish they served beer.

We arrived late and enjoyed the pork plate, as well as, a the pork rib plate. The service was great although not too friendly. I would certainly return again.

Decent coleslaw and green beans. Pulled chicken was good but a bit dry. Maybe if I had noticed the bottle of extra sauce on the table that might have helped. 😜 Iced tea was great!

I've eaten here a few time...always to go though. The take out is well packaged and has always been pretty tasty. I have always felt satisfied with my experience here. Can't say how clean the inside is as I have never been inside......but I can say this, if you are at a surrounding business, you can smell the BBQ and... More

Delicious and reasonably priced food. The barbecued filled baked potatos are delicious, and a good alternative to hamburgers. Never too crowded, and good service.
