I don’t like to write neg reviews for the most part...but I thought others should know. When I go to a local place for BBQ, I expect it’s going to be low key, not too fancy, but i expect the food will be the focus....More

Ate here for lunch. The brisket sandwich was excellent and the 3 types of sauces are as well. Inexpensive. Two people ate for $20. Good selection of sides. The cheesy potatoes and fried okra were great! Only reason I give it four was because the...More

Down home barbecue. The chicken wings are crisp and the sauce is cooked in. Three to four choices of bbq sauce. Bring an appetite. That is all there is to say.

Right next door to Super 8 (which was excellent) and a City Market across the street. For $12 got brisket and 2 meaty tender ribs and two sides. Only no alcohol. Interior "out west" style with animal heads on the walls. I know some people...More
