This place has been around for a long time. Nothing fancy for dining at the kitchen, but the barbeque is really good and the take-away is a great way to have a quick dinner.

Small unpretentious place. A few tables in from of the grill. Choice based on BBQ rib, chicken and few more. Prices are cheap especially if you share the same chicken with 2 to 4 persons.

Live meat grilling in front of you! The chicken was delicious, tender on the inside, crispy skin. Very kind owner that made us feel welcome, and provided good service.

It's easy to miss but it's worth stopping here. The barbecue is fantastic… Pork beef brisket chicken all of it. Strongly recommend a meal here (or drive thru).

The Chicken was tender and smoky. Sides were great! Especially the mac and cheese! The size of the chicken were a bit on the smaller side and the price was too high for me to want to try it again. We were hungry and there were no fast-food restaurants to be found near by.

When I'm tired and don't feel like making dinner, my husband and I head to the Little Chicken House. He always has chicken; I vary my eating, sometimes having ribs, sometimes brisket and sometimes the pulled pork. I almost have the mashed potatoes (real! not from a box) and often the cole slaw. The cole slaw is an especially nice... More

4 stars for the chicken only - you can see it roasting in the front entrance, and it is very good rotisserie chicken (it is not smoked or bbq'd but they have a smoking bbq in the front drive to draw customers in) plus reasonably priced. It was spiced deliciously and juicy and tender. We did get some sides -... More

We came for lunch and had bbq pork plate lunch with mac & cheese and mix vegetables and rotisserie chicken with potato salad and green salad which was just lettuce. Pork was fatty and tough, chicken was very tender an tasted good. We probably would find another place for lunch as it was just ok.
