As a BBQ lover, this place did not produce! Pulled pork did not taste like good pork! Brisket was chopped with a lot of fat throughout! Wings were over done and certainly did not have any smoked flavor to them at all!! Wings were tiny...More

Got a quarter of a chicken and sides--tasty. Service took a while. The location is a used quick-service location and was hot and mildly uncomfortable. Looks like these people know BBQ. Missed the entrance but parked in the shopping center adjacent.

The ribs were average at best. Cole slaw had a sour taste, onion rings were delicious .Ants were crawling on the half wall next to our table. 2 white ceiling fans were filthy. The place needs paint and Clorox. This was the Neptune location.

I find most BBQ joints to be predictable in that one of the big four (meat/chicken, baked beans, bbq sauce itself, potato salad) is lacking. This place is a home-run in all 4 areas. I jjust finished a brisket sandwich beans potato salad combo-everything is...More
