Have been here alone, with my husband on "double date" and with a crew of people and everyone I have taken there LoVeS the food. I have enjoyed it so much I am going to have them cater an event for me in the Spring. The ribs are wonderful, the brisket is delish and the Pork is okay. Their sides... More

Have been eating here since they opened and some days are better than others. Today was a 3+ but most visits are a solid 4. Today the bread was a little soggy and more fat than normal on the pulled pork sandwich. The Mac n Cheese very good as always. Didn't have it today but the Brunswick stew is also... More

Casual luncheon fare ordering in line and taking seat while food is prepared. Eat on picnic type tables inside with serve yourself soft drinks. Barbeque is one of the best in the state and prices are moderate. Usually packed at lunchtime.

Barbeque was great; cole slaw is terrible; mac and cheese was good if eaten immediately; otherwise became very oily. Baked beans were good; no alcohol served. Walk up and order; food then brought to table. Often not enough seating area for volume. Was there once when they ran out of meat.

Mild BBQ with red sauces are all well prepared and easy to eat. What sets this place apart is the freshness of the kitchen sink salad, the creaminess of a crusty mac n cheese, and the cole slaw which is just the right amount of tangy. The staff is always pleasant and they move folks through this very popular establishment... More

Homemade lemonade, pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw and potato salad. $14.00 and I would have paid more for this deliciousness!

This was an excellent find today. This location offers counter service only. The BBQ beef brisket was top notch with a large portion. I had the Brunswick stew as my side and it too was very tasty. While I normally find at least one thing to ding a restaurant on I found nothing here. I will definitely be back to... More

A great alternative to the always packed Fox Brothers. I loved everything I ate. A delicious pulled pork sandwich with yummy Mac & Cheese and potato salad on the side. The only thing this place lacks is in the atmosphere. Limited seating means either getting your food to go, or standing/hovering awkwardly while you wait for some folks to leave.... More

Wonderful barbecue! The baked beans were probably the best I have ever had! The potato salad was OK - the slaw was very good too - vinegar based - service was super fast - highly recommend!

Out of the way neighborhood BBQ restaurant with fast service, and extensive menu and excellent food. Stand in line to order and the food is delivered to your table by the staff almost before you know it. Good selections of BBQ and other items. Everything we ordered was excellent, served hot and promptly. Place was packed but turned over fairly... More
