My wife saw this BBQ joint when driving down to Sylagauga. She stopped by and picked up BBQ chicken, ribs, beans and slaw. Food was great. We have gone back for more. Nice addition to our BBQ list.

My husband and I often travel Hwy. 280, and it was not uncommon to see a full parking area at this restaurant on some occasions. We love good BBQ pork, so we were interested by the crowds and chose to stop when it was convenient....More

Very good flavor. Pork was over chopped. Sauce was tasty but a bit too runny. Sides were skimpy in amount. Overall the plate of food lacked in quality and amount to make it a good value. $$$

They have brisket on Thursday and Fridays so I usually plan which days we'll eat there around that. It's delicious!! They have bands on weekend evenings. They have amazing sides, potato salad-Mac n cheese-baked beans are my favorites. It's a must try!!!

Better than average. The ribs are rather small but are a good smokey flavored. They come sauceless. You add your own. The mac and cheese is pretty good. It seems to be what most people rave about. Overall this place isnt nothing to bragg about....More
