We had heard how good this was and my husband ate there before it changed owners and said it was much better then. The restaurant was decorated very nicely but was dusty. The staff was very friendly though. The fried pickles were good but our meals were not. My husband got the hot link dinner plate and it was overly... More

We usually get take-out twice a month. The BBQ is great, and the portions are generous. The potato salad is awesome, as well as the French Fries

This place never disappoints. Never. Whether you get chicken, pork or beef its always so incredibly moist and a really good value. Their bbq sauce though is what takes the cake. If you are traveling through its maybe 7 minutes from the interstate and well worth travelling past the taco bell and mcdonalds at the exit to get some real... More

If you're in the area of Ozark, AR this is the best BBQ I know of within 100 miles. We've been spoiled in the past by the former owners so it's been adjustment recently with the new ownership. The service is above average. The BBQ is very good considering the location. It isn't Texas, Memphis, or Kansas City BBQ but... More

Live in Ozark, eat there often. Still best bar-b-que around. Jumbo Brisket sandwich and Rivertowne beans. Have to have some Texas Toast to "sop up" the bean juice. If they would only add some desserts. Still a great value.

We were in town with friends visiting local wineries. There was 25 of us. Called ahead and they were able to seat us in about 10 minutes on a Saturday at noon. We could not all sit together but that was OK. I ordered pulled pork BBQ and wife ordered smoked salmon salad. Both were great. Service was pretty good... More

Nice looking place, easy to get to. Food cold, ribs tough and fatty. Staff friendly, but no service. Will not be back.
