Visited with a group of 5 on a Wednesday night. Only two other couples inside with us, lots of people coming in to pick up call in orders. We ordered and got our food in about 5 minutes if that. Food was yummy, we got pulled pork sandwich, wings, Carolina style pulled pork (pulled pork with slaw on top), brisket, along with slaw, green beans, and mac and cheese. All very very good. Least favorite (but still tender and yummy) would have been the brisket, but we had never had brisket before so maybe it was just us.

My husband & I ate here last Saturday night. Had concert tickets close by for 7:30,pm so we arrived about 5:45 pm to give us plenty of time to eat. After standing in line for 15 min. to put our order in, we sat down to wait for our meal. Thankfully, there is plenty of cool rock&roll memorabilia to look at and the TVs had a good baseball game on, because we didn't get our food until 6:45!!! 45 minutes to get an order of ribs and a brisket sandwich, both with potato salad??? The ribs & brisker should have already been slow cooked & the potato salad already made, so what took so damn long??? My guess is inadequate staffing. The pleasant blonde at the counter was literally running to serve & be helpful, but the food was taking forever to get out of the kitchen. Would We go back? Probably, because the food was good, but only if we have LOTS of extra time. (We made it to our concert on time, but we rushed through eating.to make it)

We got a couple pounds of the pulled pork for a family dinner, complete with the buns, baked beans, and cole slaw. The pork is really good, as is the sauce. Baked beans were awesome. I really like how they have both slider size buns, and regular size buns. Just adds a little more fun to your meal. I also liked how they gave us a whole bottle of their barbecue sauce, instead of little cups of it. This would be great for a little picnic or any kind of outdoor family event.

Not a fan of the sauce on the ribs. Cherry? So get that on the side. Everything else is crazy good.

Love the pulled pork, green beans and mac-n-cheese.

Get there early. They sell out of some items as everything is made fresh.

Well pulled pork was decent. Nothing i would go out of way for. But good for a locals place. Brisket was good. Ribs were not nowhere near the best I've had. But to me the star was the jalapeno corn muffins. Everybody likes different types of barbecue so i suggest giving it a try.
