My new favorite lunch place! I had ribs and a leg quarter. There is a great smoke to the ribs, they're dry rubbed with an appropriate amount of seasoning-not over, not under. The chicken likewise was bbqed low and slow to get that awesome flavor and tenderness. $18 for a loaded huge potato and a combo platter with fries and... More

Reasonably priced BBQ joint. Meat was good but there wasn't anything special about the sauce. I'd still recommend it for price alone

My husband loves the ribs. I like the botater. Loaded with all the good stuff. The beans and potato salad are average. Not much to look at the business is old and could use some updating but it is good BBQ.

Stopped to grab lunch while working at Barksdale AFB. Had the Beef Tips with mashed potatoes and gravy. Service was OK although they did not get the order right. Food was a bit better than average. Not a bad stop.

We finally tried it out after a year of living down the road. The food was pretty good; I'd say it's better than Podnuh's, but not as good as Silver Star. I was impressed by the prices, the portion sizes, and the variety on the menu. I'll be back to try some of the daily plate specials. One complaint: It... More

I visited here on my recent trip home and it never fails me. The best BBQ in Bossier... The Botatoes are my favorite. My kids love the chicken tenders and the Cajun foods.
