I never even realized this place existed in the 8 years I lived here. We always ate at Woodys Bbq- which is good, but never excited me. My parents saw it in the strip mall near our house and stepped in to grab a menu....More

This was takeout. Great sides, including delicious garlic bread! French fries were good but too greasy and heavy on the stomach. Tried pulled pork and turkey barbecue. Tasty, good portions of family style order with variety of sauces from which to choose. Note no bar...More

Not fancy, but good food and friendly. Alot of bang for the buck. We always call and get take out. Does not serve beer, which for me is a must with BBQ!

Food certainly is a determining factor when frequenting a restaurant. A close second are the people and service. Barb and Wally make you feel like family and that makes the dining experience second to none. Do your self a favor and experience what most restaurants...More
