This is a huge place, lots of truckers eating here ! Very clean, priced well, and the Tuesday special is out of this world. Chopped bbq brisket sandwich for $1.00 yes you read that right $1.00. Nothing fancy but good, they trim all the fat off the meat. There is a large room for meetings, or family gatherings. The sides... More

New owners, little has changed. Food might be a little better. Good friendly folks. Prices seem a little high, but it is a bbq joint.

You can always count on this barbeque restaurant to trim off all fat and give you the BEST slice of meat, no matter which you choose! To me, this is the BEST BBQ in the entire area! The owners are very nice, and the place is well kept. There is loads of room for large groups, as well as one... More

This place is located on the north side of Paris a little ways outside of town. Their business plan is simple, sell great barbque, at a great price. Interior is very simple, but very clean. All their meats are excellent. Great cobbler as well. They do also have a meeting room. No bar, no alcohol. Just great barbque!!! Lunch specials... More

I drove by it for four days and then stopped to buy late supper for my night shift crew. I usually don't treat other people to new food without trying it first. My crew and I were thoroughly pleased with brisket, potato salad, baked beans and sauce. Very reasonable price, Absolutely fresh-cooked taste and they packaged it great, family-style for... More

Good brisket and ribs with mediocre sides. They do a good job trimming the brisket before slicing which I really like. Sometimes they have cold ribs at a discount which is nice for to-go orders. Nice large baked potatoes but inconsistent on cooking. New hours has them closing at 7:00, even on the weekend. Service isn't great so we get... More

I really enjoyed the meal here. In town for archery tourney and was looking for a lunch during a rain out. Initially I was a little upset with how slow the line was moving (I'm from the north, I always forget the different pace down south) but when I got up there I learned why. The guy building the sandwiches... More
