Got there for half price appetizers and had wings and fried pickles that were both good. Had a pulled pork and smoked sausage sandwich that wasn't bad. Not a bad draft selection for a few good beers. I would definitely consider a return visit if in the area again

the BBQ here is OK but there are many other choices in teh area that are better. the food is OK and the service is OK but it is kind of like Indiana version of BBQ when you are in big BBQ country.

The food is great, and so is the service from the great employees. The only manager left "Derrick" is ruining the place. The turnover is terrible because he can't be consistent and it has caused other managers to leave. Try the food when you can because you can tell this place won't be around much longer.

As crazy as it seems, the BBQ may be the worse thing on the menu! Combine that with being overpriced and there is a recipe for disaster. What will fix that? A price hike! This place has struggled from day one. Sarah was able to fill a bar with customers and keep them all happy. What can fix that? Let... More

My fiance and I visited on July 3rd for a quick dinner after hiking all day at Mount Cheaha and we were craving some BBQ. We got there at 5:45pm and were the first table in there and some guy server greeted us to take our drink order while our actual server was busy in the back doing something (according... More

Perhaps this spot is more known for its 20 taps & beer specials...but we can with nearly 30 men seated across 4 groups of tables. Servers did great. Menu item descriptions sounded delicious but we soon found out a huge disappointment. Bbq pork was too dry, no flavor. Ribs had good meat and size but again the rub added nearly... More

The tater chippers half price appetizer was tasty for the money. The bbq nachos appetizer (ordered as a meal) was fair at best with very dry, less than fresh bbq chicken. I don't recommend it. The 8oz. steak Friday night special was very good and well cooked however the spicy mac and cheese side was bland and not very cheesy.

We are in Alabama doing the golf trail. After a long day we stopped here to eat. The Barbeque was almost inedible. The service was not very good. The bread pudding was inedible, you could not even cut into it. The ice cream was so freezer burned it was basically ice crystals.

Come here for lunch, you won't be disappointed. It's Bar-b-cue place, but the lunch menu adds traditional meat and 3 items, that's as good as I've ever had. Try it.
