Let's start with the pluses. Plenty of parking. Light, airy interior design with ample seating. Friendly staff. Fast service. I ordered the brisket sandwich, Brisket is always a test for a barbecue restaurant, because making good brisket is much harder than it looks. There was...More

The employees are exceptionally helpful and friendly. The building is clean and comfortable. I ordered two hot dogs, which I felt were horrible. Went back and got a smoked chicken sandwich. It was just okay. The fries were good! Would not return.

Got the pulled pork by the pound. It was awesome! Call that morning at 11 and they had it ready by 1:30. Team was very friendly at pick up as well.

Former Subway location on the corner of Courthouse and Stafford Drive. Renovations are quite remarkable. Very well done. Big portions of pulled pork but rather skimpy on the sides. My pickles and onions consisted of three pickle slices and one small (very small) section of...More

I really like the set up. It's like a subway in that you order at the counter and watch your meal get prepared. No waiting for a waitress, just get you meal and drink, pick a seat and enjoy. It's a good place to get...More
