The brisket was dry, but the ribs were good. The place was super clean and William, the assistant manager was friendly and come out of clean and greet customers. I have super high standards for BBQ and this was good/decent and the sides were just okay.

What a value! Fresh sliced meats with choice of sides. The brisket was so tender and perfectly cooked. The greens and mashed potatoes were tasty. The corn bread was wonderful as well as Texas toast. Put this one on your list of places to eat.

This is cafeteria style bbq that is delicious. We got the Family Pack which served 4 with your choice of a pound of meat and two pints of your choice of sides for $23. We got the pulled pork shoulder with green beans, cucumber salad, and cornbread. The BBQ and sauce was delicious! The cucumber salad and cornbread were likely the best I’d ever had and the green beans were decent. There were only three of us and we had plenty left for a fourth person. Highly recommend walking here if you visit Antique Archaelogy!

Authentic southern smoked BBQ. Huge portions for not a huge price.

It is not a traditional restaurant, and the staff does not wait on you. You order deli-style at a counter and pay upfront. The staff was very friendly and respectful, in true southern style.

I had a chicken dinner with greens and macaroni & cheese. My 1/2 chicken was falling off the bone and so delicious. The greens were phenomenal- a little spicy, just how I like them. My friend had ribs, which were also fall-off-the-bone with a great smokey flavor.

The tender smoked meats didn't need it, but the restaurant offered a variety of different BBQ sauces that you can try for no additional cost. This is great for someone who doesn't know much about BBQ or is just open to trying different styles of BBQ. I would go back!
