Some of the best barbecue ever! Informal family friendly, a bit pricy but well worth it. Large portions, the plates could be shared but the problem is it is so darned good no one ever wants to . 5 sauces, each very good 4 on the table and the hot on the bar.

My favorite part of visiting here is all the different sides available to accompany the great barbecue. Service is friendly and quick and the owner is almost always visiting the guests to make sure everyone is happy with their meal.

Good barbecue but not the best in the area. Portion size is on the smaller side and sides are not as good.

I have eaten at plenty of barbecue place, but this one is heads above all of the other. The food is always fresh and the people are always friendly. You will have a variety of choice to choose from. They really deserves a six out of five. Conline to be blessed.

Very friendly restaurant! The Mac and cheese and fried okra are maybe best you ever had. Wish they were open later in the day. Convenient, just right on Clemson Blvd. near the mall.

Thanks, Reba. My wife worked on the mac recipe for 12 years -- trying to get it as close as she could to her grandmother's! More

Description
THE BEST BBQ! Smoked Pork, Ribs, Chicken, Beef Brisket and Sausages. The meats are smoked daily for 8 to 14 hours in our on-site BBQ Pit using a mixture of woods (Hickory, Pecan, White Oak) combined with unique blends of spices and rubs. Our traditional southern side dishes are cooked from scratch in-house each day. Come on by and visit us early 'cause when it's gone, IT'S GONE!
