Food was ok. We thought it was little overpriced for the quality. Young lady at register could use some customer service training. Would not go again.

Fine bbq. Okra perfect. Mac and cheese and vin slaw also fine. Meatballs and brisket plate also fine. Brisket very well cooked and sliced. Choice of sauces. Friendly service. Good prices and portions. Definitely worth the trip. Will be back.

Very tasty bbq. Fun atmosphere with lots of decorations. The woman taking our orders did an excellent job recommending which foods would be safe for our different allergies. I have a wheat allergy/ gluten free and had the brisket, which is seasoned with just salt...More

Always a good meal, good prices. And you can get any style of BBQ sauce you want. Everything we've ever ate there is delicious. A great place, in a great little town.
