This place is small and easy to miss. There's not a lot of seating but it was easy to get a table on a weeknight. I had the barbecue plate and my husband had the rib/barbecue combo. The food is wonderful and there's a lot of it. The beans and coleslaw are excellent as well. Our waitress was nice and... More

I had me some ribs and I must say they're on the level of Buds And Ness and for those who ate there knows that once you get to eating you got to be careful not to bite your finger. Nothing like good ol pork on your fork

Food is great. Looking for a quality lunch and not fast food this is the place to go. I always make this a stop when in the west end.

We used Yelp and TripAdvisor to find a good BBQ restaurant close to our hotel. This place was great! Best shrimp po boy I ever tasted. Everything was perfect - from the service, ambience, craft beers, delicious food through desert. If I am in the area again, I will definitely return.

We were encouraged to try this place because it was close to our hotel and got pretty good reviews on TripAdvisor.The best thing about it is the service--although they were very busy the waitresses kept their cool and worked with good humor. Servings were very large, and most orders could be maximally filling. The sweet potato fries were a big... More

Love this place ! The "Big Boner" is what you need to order. Get here before 11:30am because it fills up fast, or you might have to wait half hour to get seated. Tried the Hog Chili this time.

We had the famous hot dog with pulled pork and a chicken hoagie. Both items were excellent and super tasty. Based on the reviews I wasn't necessarily blown away but the food was in fact very good. I would recommend this place for a lunch or lite dinner.

Found this place on yelp and/or tripadvisor. It was very close to our hotel. Loved it! Very small place with very friendly service. The pulled chicken sandwich was delicious. The sweet potato fries were about the best I've had & loved the maple dipping sauce that came with them. The lemon ice box pie for dessert was fabulous and big... More

I went here for lunch with two others. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious. They have huge portions. HUGE! There is something called the "big boner" which is a giant hotdog with a rack of ribs on top of it. If you are trying to lose weight, stay away from this place. Also, be aware that you will probably wait... More
