We dropped in here on a whim and what a pleasant surprise! Everything was terrific. The staff were helpful and courteous and the portions generous.

I live in the Southeast, and I find myself specifically craving The BBQ Joint's food. The quality of meat is something I cannot find in the state I reside in. It doesn't go unnoticed that this "mom and pop shop" takes pride in the items...More

Everything at this restaurant was very Bland. Even the barbecue sauce was very Bland. The macaroni salad was not very good and again very Bland. Overall not a very good place.More

We are sorry you found our food bland. We make everything here from our family recipes. It is very hurtful for you to say we are disgusting. We regularly get perfect or near perfect inspections by the health department. We will do our best to...More

Love this BBQ Joint!! Since I'm a local, it's my 'go to' place for take out, and if I have friends in town, an 'eat-in' place. The meats are smoked & BBQ'd, with sauce on the side. My favorite is the brisket, melt-in-your-mouth tender. But...More

Loved their pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw as topping! Brisket is equally good. The ribs are very well done with meat falling off of its bone--yum! We liked to order take-out for our dinner, too.

The ribs are delicious. Sausage and chicken are good. Brisket was not bad, but not as good as the others. Highly recommended as one of the few places to find good barbeque.

Ordered a three meat plate: brisket, ribs and sausage. Being from Texas, and having judged my fair share of BBQ, this was disappointing. Let's start with the brisket; it was dry and overcooked. Decent smoke ring. Did not pull apart like properly prepared brisket should....More
