I love some good BBQ, and this place did not disappoint. I only had time to try the brisket and I was impressed. Great sides and sauces as well. The staff was friendly and fast.

Babyback ribs where delicious, as was the coleslaw, the side salad and the bread. One of our party had the Brisket Philly sandwich, a Monday special which was also very good.

We had lunch here. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious, along with the beans, coleslaw and potato salad. We loved the sauces. A real quaint, very clean restaurant. Worth a visit. The family that owns it is super sweet. Service was top-notch.

I'm still eating my pulled pork sandwich! Had to write a review as I think this place is so good. I love the friendly service but the rich, varied and delicious food menu is outstanding. Definitely coming back here if I get the chance.

We have been going to this restaurant for a few years, and loved the food! In recent months, however, it seems that the portions have become considerably smaller than before. Also, several of the side items that were once included in the "meal price," are...More
