Fresh tasty BBQ ribs, chicken grilled on site, and tasty hamburgers! Sides--many options and large servings. Friendly and fast/good service. Not a franchise! I'd give it a 4 1/2 stars if I could--food and service is excellent, indoor environment is a little sparse, but they have a good drive-thru!

We had a meal here 2 years ago that was average. We picked up takeout 2 nights ago: my wife had the ¼ chicken and said it was ok I had the ribs w/ potato salad and green salad. The ribs were over cooked outside (aka: tough) extremely greasy inside. Sauce was terrible, no real flavor, nothing approaching a decent... More

I'm sorry, but I've eaten here a few times. When the chicken isn't dry, it's good. My problem with this place is that I felt ripped off the last time I was here. I ordered 1/4 chicken for me and a half chicken for my son. His portion looked the same as mine and this place isn't exactly cheap! Lots... More

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.
