We have been by here several times and decided to try it.. He got mild and I got hot.. neither had any flavor at all. Meat is sliced and tough. No smoked flavor at all.. beans from a can.. well, now we know..

We've been regulars for 40 years. Try the hot pork sandwich. #1 in my book,don't judge the food from the look of the business. It is awesome.

5 stars for the food! The beef plate and pork ribs were delicious. Cole slaw was very good. Server was kind. Rated 4 stars overall because they were out of pie and ambiance. Will definitely come back when driving through Arkansas!

It's Great but your going to have to wait wait wait to get it ! It would be best to for them to upgrade the building and hire more help and it could take off to the next level ! The food is great but your going to have to wait to get it.

This quite possibly the best BBQ I've eaten. It's worth a drive of distance to get to and enjoy. It's short on decor but long on flavor, great food and great people that work there.

As a former local, I have been eating here since the 1950's and, yes it may have changed a little over the years, but it is still the most unique and delicious PORK BBQ in the world. Now, it is a 545 mile trip to indulge in the experience and still worth every mile. Note that the pork is white... More

See my comments on Craig's Café. Has the best pork and beef BBQ. People talk about BBQ in Texas, Kansas City, Memphis and South Carolina but Craig's is something really special.

BBQ sandwich was nice, never had it sliced before. Always chopped or pulled. Burger was good. Service was prompt and friendly. Prices were reasonable

You gotta make the pilgrimage to this special barbecue place. A real game changer. The barbecue is phenomenal, burgers are cooked on cast iron griddle. And try the pies.

We ate BBQ in memphis and this is the best BBQ we have had. We had the rib and pork sandwich. Simple but good. They only take cash but it is cheap and worth it.

Thank Tanya F
