“Much better this time around”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

After our last visit (see previous review), we thought we'd give it another shot. No after dinner issues this time around and the food was generally teriffic. If I had a complaint it would be that if you order a platter with sausage (OUTSTANDING sausage), you don't get much in comparison to the 2nd item (in my case it was pulled pork). Wife had a 2-item platter as well -- brisket and ribs -- and both in plentiful supply (and both very good). Would have been nice had they been a bit more generous with the sausage -- very small serving.

Reviewed 5 March 2012

Not often we take home leftovers, but there was so much! Easily a place you could share a meal.

“Mostly good”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

This staple is one of Estes' better restaurants. In general the food is well prepared and tasty BBQ. My only gripe is their recent consistency issues, Most of the time its good, but sometimes its not where it needs to be. If you're looking to eat in EP, this needs to be on your list.
