The people that own are great! When they are away they bring in people that care just as much as they do. When you call in an order or when you go in they rock it every time. They are there and make sure you get the best you order. They rotate the food to where its perfect. Lunch specials... More

Not very good. We used to have one in Casa Grande too and that was not very good, thought this might be better but no. We wont be going back.

Great choices in their menu. Beef, Fish, Chicken, Pork, etc. Good prices, and very good service. Small place, seating less than 50, but clean and well kept. Tried about 1/4 of their menu. It was ALL good. Don't expect a fine dining experience. It is also a "carry-out" place with a LOT of business. NOT a place to take your... More

My bf & I are regulars here. We love everything on the menu and I believe we have eaten everything on the menu at least once . Portion size is hit or miss. Sometimes your plate is loaded up and sometimes it's not. The bark on the brisket is pure heaven !!! The shredded pork has that smokey , cooked... More

Had 3 meat combo plate, chose ribs, brisket & chicken. Tender meat, pretty good sauce. Comes with 2 sides and a dinner roll with butter. I chose mac n cheese - very good, thick & "cheesy" -plus cold slaw, very good too, with just enough sweetness for my liking.

Went here for lunch w/ some co-workers. The choice came down to Famous Dave's up by the mall or trying this new place. To say the least I was unimpressed. I will say that I thought the meat was decent. I had the rib tips and although not as meaty as many rib tips I've had before, they were fairly... More

Bought out recently. Food still great. Ribs, brisket, hamburgers, pulled meat consistently good. Poker on Thursday and Saturdays. Heard the football season breakfast is great.

I had the misfortune of taking my family here for dinner. I was in the mood for some bbq and ribs and this place is in our neighborhood. You don't ever want to eat at this place. It will be closed in less than 6 months anyway. The restaurant is broken out into a dining side and a bar side... More

You get what you pay for here, which is very little. Low prices seems to equal poor service and very average food. If you like your BBQ over cooked and really over sauced then this might be for you. My rib tips and chicken came so covered in sauce you could not tell them apart. Also the chicken was so... More
