Do not be swayed by the aesthetic of this restaurant, they make up for it with quality and service. I love my BBQ and I love a good rub, that being said you can never go wrong with their smoked chicken. Always moist, rub has...More

We went here with in laws. Got half a rack of baby backs, red beans and rice and potato salad. The red beans were sort of bland and watery. Not at all what I was expecting. The pot salad was excellent. The ribs were tender...More

Take out is your best choice for Bootleg because they have great pork, potato salad, Cole slaw, etc. at a convenient location just outside FC area.

The potatoe salad here is incredible. Not really set up to eat in the restaurant. The red beans and rice are also really good that few people order. The pork while good does not stand out.

The barbecue here is good. I had the pulled pork. It had a good, smokey flavor. If you are dining in, the place is a little run down. I would recommend carry out.
