I've been here twice and was disappointed both times. As other folks have posted it's cash only. There is an ATM. Girl Scouts selling cookies take plastic so what gives? There are tables outside by the parking lot but the trash can out there had...More

I've been here a few times. I've had the brisket, the half chicken, and a variety of their sides. It's all been pretty fantastic. They seem to have just one barbecue sauce so if you're not a fan of that you're out of luck. Give...More

Food is great - anything you get is good. You can order ahead if you know what you want. It's a little off the beaten track, but their followers stayed with them! They also have a catering truck and are at local events. Personally, the...More

I love the pulled pork, but the specials are delicious too. The fried pickles are on point and the potato salad is pretty good too. I honestly have never had lunch there that wasn't great.

This is not a sit down restaurant it is a carryout. The ribs, chicken, and beef are very tasty and the barbecue sauce is "Spicy and Sweet". The sides are also very tasty. My guest has to have the cornbread. Pleasant and good service.

The very best in St. Marys county Maryland . I have ate at many places for barbecue and no one can compare to the this place. Friendly customer service and they treat you like family.

I just don't understand why people like the food. I've been three times now, and am not even remotely impressed. Perhaps that's because I prefer North Carolina barbecue. This stuff is just meat with less-than-appealing sauce thrown on it. UGH!

mouth-watering bbq with just the right balance of spicy, sweet, and juicy. sides are also a great bonus to round out the menu.

The BBQ is moist and well seasoned. We had pulled pork and ribs and both were excellent. The take way process was fast and efficient as well.
