Just love this place. Friendly staff, excellent array of choices, and super food. My son enjoyed the meat, as a vegetarian, I loved the mac 'n cheese and coleslaw. They add a touch of pineapple bits to the coleslaw for a different and delicious flavor....More

We got 2 (3) meat samplers ...then got a feast for 4 .... And there was only 4 of us! Our favorite was the sausage with the kc sauce. The Mac & cheese and baked beans are the sides to get.

Large restaurant that easily accommodated our large group. You order at the counter. They have many different side items. Sweet potato fries. Mac and cheese, beans, and corn were tried by our group along with sliced brisket.

BBQ meats are simply outstanding. Selection of sides is a bit thin, very heavy on potatoes, no salads, only green beans. Beers are iced cold.

Hadn't been here in a while and came by today for lunch. Smoked meats have always been good here--my pulled pork and hubbies half slab were delicious and far better than national chain in town. The wonderful surprise was side items, which have expanded to...More

Ordered the 3 Meat Big Memphis sandwich. Don't know who defined "big" for them. The bun overwhelmed the meat on my sandwich. When asked how it was I actually suggested they could double the meat AND increase the price a couple dollars and customers would...More
