I don't eat ribs, but I ate these. Enough said? The staff was very friendly, manager came over to offer a complimentary appetizer along with free sauces just for being newcomers, the guys both ate a full rack and were asking for more! Will return.

Delicious tender ribs in a great atmosphere. Servers were on the spot with whatever needed and always with a smile. Food was plentiful and complimentary dessert for the birthday boy made it even better

Had a family dinner out. Service was fast and friendly and the food was great. Had a feast for 2 and the three of us probably ate about 60% of it.

Ordered the brisket dinner. A good sized portion! Ordered potato salad, which was very tasty and the beans, also delicious. The meal came with a corn muffin. I normally don't eat corn muffins (don't care for the texture), but this one was fabulous. The brisket had a delicious flavor, however, was a bit on the salty side. It was very... More

We come to this place a few times a year and have always enjoyed the food. I usually get ribs but this time I decided to try the chicken. It was cooked to perfection-moist and tender and the sauce was awesome.

I don't normally eat fish, but the catfish here was outstanding! Took me back to my childhood, when my Dad, brother and I used to go fishing for catfish in the California Delta. The sauce was excellent, the service from Kelly A. was great, and the hand- washing facility was unique. No boxes to take along; we ate everything! Watch... More

We were assigned a section with tables for 5, the menu has a lot of options; saldas, sups, chiken, pork, beef... to try many things it's ideal order "Dave's Sampler Platter" or "All-American BBQ Feast®". Once they take your orden, bring you a corn homemade pancake freshly baked, it's dream, a... More
