The brisket at this easy to find restaurant was very good. Staff was friendly and we were served quickly. The brisket is smoked on-site, sliced thinly and piled on a bun. You slather on the sauce you desire. The deep fried corn on the cob...More

Our group of 11 stopped by on our way through. Took 5-7 minutes to get there from I70 but it was well worth the time. I had the ribs and was very happy. The sauces were not too impressive to me at first, but they...More

Plentiful servings, reasonably priced....had the burnt ends (consistency of a Sloppy Joe sandwhich), sweet potato fries, fried okra. Spouse ordered a pork sandwhich and coconut cream pie....tab was $20! Only downside is the inside seating was extremely loud....hard to carry on a decent conversation....

Didn't like the place or the food here. The people who work here were super nice, but the food was not even average - fatty meat and lack of flavor.

This is one of my favorite places--anywhere, anytime. The sides are excellent, the portions large--and adjustable. The smoked meat is excellent. And, the service is generally friendly.

Good barb-b-q, but the sides are great here, especially the horseradish slaw. I had the pulled pork, and the brisket (which I happen to like thin-sliced), and both had a nice smoke ring and some burnt bits. The sauces on the table are good, but...More

We stopped in for some BBQ---so good! Nice atmosphere, clean and friendly. Fast service. Ordered pulled pork, brisket, and the sloppy joe with fries, coleslaw, mac/cheese and texas toothpicks. Very good -- looking forward to visiting again when we are in town.
