I got the smoked wing platter and my wife got the pulled pork platter. Both dishes were great. My wings were juicy and smoked so good you could taste the smoke. My wife's pulled pork moist and the BBQ sauce made it even better.

We tried their ribs and they were delicious. Juicy and tender. We went back another night and tried their BBQ. No comparison to their ribs! Also, they give you garlic bread with your meals. Really? Garlic bread with ribs or BBQ?

We were a large party, late in the supper hour, and aside from the service being a tad slow in the beginning, it went very well. The staff met our needs and were more attentive as the food was served. Our food was very good,...More

We met another local family here, and we all enjoyed what we had. The Memphis Ribs were great. The hushpuppies were very good, and the baked beans were a good side choice. One of our friends got the green beans, and they looked really good...More
