We stopped in for a late dinner. It was delicious. We had wonderful friendly service at reasonable prices. It is worth a visit.

I tried this BBQ place based on reviews elsewhere. It's located in a shopping center ( first mistake). The service was fi e as its counter service. The food was OK. Got the three meat dinner. The smoked sausage was burnt. The ribs OK. Chopped beef had the texture of baby food. My search continues!!

I ate here once before, many months ago. I was out geocaching and the rain returned just about noon, so I thought I'd try this que place again. The last time here I ordered a regular bbq pork sandwich, but this time I tried one of their "SFA Specials" - the "Pete's Special." This consists of pork BBQ topped with... More

I had the ribs, the wife had the pulled pork. Both items were pretty good and i would eat there again. Didn't find anything there especially to brag about but it was all good.

We tried a 4 meat platter so we could sample all of their items. The result... Pretty average BBQ! Ribs were tasty but very greasy. Chicken was pretty good, with nice flavor. We had a hard time telling the difference between the pulled pork and beef brisket - they were shredded so fine it looked like they were in a... More

I went here hoping to get some good down South BBQ, instead I received a beef brisket that was more like a Roast Beef sandwich with smoke flavoring and BBQ sauce. I have made a better Brisket at home. My girlfriend had a BBQ sandwich that was also subpar. This may be good for some folks but not for true... More

Hidden away from the beach is this great little BBQ place located in the Landstown shopping center. You will find this gem in the street with many restaurants located within the shopping center at the intersection of Princess Anne and Dam Neck. We were visiting in the area and hit this place for lunch. A threesome, we all had pork... More

I had heard a lot about here, and my expectations were set for really GOOD BBQ. I was met with OK BBQ. The ribs were overdone. I like to grab a rib and have the meat still stick to the bone for me to pick it up. I hate using a fork to eat ribs... The "Rib Sauce" needs to... More

All im going to say is I'd rather eat US NAVY ship food with no hot sauce. They should be embarrassed to call them selves a BBQ restaurant.
