So glad we had dinner here. The BBQ melts in your mouth & the prices are crazy affordable. We shared the "Triple Q dinner" & got burnt ends, ribs & brisket. The rib meat fell off the bone, I cut the brisket with a fork & the burnt ends were juicy & not crusty. All that for $20! There is... More

I stopped in for lunch and tried a rib special. There are a few tables and almost as many seats at a counter. Since it was a lunch special it was only four bones. They provided eight different sauces and I tried a different one on each bone. I was disappointed with the ones I tried, but there seemed to... More

Blows slows away. Incredible sauces, made fresh daily, to go along with all the fresh smoked meats. BURNT ENDS ARE LEGIT. TAKE MY WORD!

We dined in. Every employee at some point followed up with us to see how our meal was. And our meal was excellent and filling. Will definitely go back. Love the variety of the sauces. Will tell our friends. Perfectly priced.

Top quality meats and fair prices. Delicious ribs, pulled pork and brisket. Pork wings and burnt ends my new favorites. Many Sauces. You can bring in your own beer & wine.

We enjoy bar-b-que and after living in the south for a decade, have developed high standards. I knew I was in the right place after my first bite of baked beans. Both ordered lunch specials, one pulled pork sliders and one rib sample. Both dishes were spot on. The sides were also perfect and authentic. I liked the variety of... More

Stopped by Little Z's BBQ yesterday and had a wonderful BBQ lunch! Almost missed it from the harder to see sign out front but was pleasantly surprised at the great selection of BBQ items on their menu! I had a half slab of St. Louis style ribs. The meat fell off the bone and was delicious! They smoke their ribs... More
