We have competed in numerous competitions over the years, and have brought home trophies and prize money. So we want to bring this passion to our little BBQ Joint (as we call it), to feed our friends, family and neighbors. Please stop by and try us. We will do whatever it takes to make you fat and happy.

We tried the pork ribs, pulled pork, sweet potato fries, regular fries and the mac and cheese. The ribs were some of the best I have eaten and we have visited numerous BBQ joints from Memphis to North Carolina and Texas. The pulled pork was good as were the sweet potato fries and mac and cheese. The only subpar item we tried were the regular fries which were the usual frozen and tasteless variety. The sauces (regular and spicy) were also very good. My wife used the leftover sauce in a chili recipe the next day and it really added to the chili flavor. I would definately go back to this place. We had takeout, but my wife said the counter help was very helpful.

After driving all day from Sedona we were looking for a place to grab a quick dinner before the final leg into LV. Quick search on TA revealed this gem. Service was fast and friendly. Food was fantastic. Recommend the Mac & Cheese, Cowboy Beans and loaded tacos with pulled pork. Don't pass this one up.

This place is a little tucked away - but clearly they have regulars that know where to find it! When you walk up you can smell the brisket cooking on the smoker, it smells so good! It is very casual and the waitstaff is very friendly. The prices are very reasonable. I asked for extra BBQ sauce with my brisket sandwich (served on Texas toast!) and they brought two options. I enjoyed the spicy! The pickle was a homemade cucumber pickle. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because they make their potato salad without mustard. This will be our "go to" for BBQ!

Nice little gem of an establishment on your way to see the Hoover Dam. This is a nice and friendly local restaurant. Small with a big heart and great BBQ. I had a virgin pina colada and it was extremely rich with flavor and thick. Prices are reasonable and the food great.

Tried the Oklahoman ($11) with beans for the side. My son tried the Philly ($12) with fries. We were both happy with our meals. Soft drinks were $2.50.
