Good BBQ and plenty of tasty sides to choose from. We frequently do takeout for work events and their $6 Budget Buster lunch menu provides plenty of food for the price.

What is not to love about tender, juicy BBQ with yummy sauces and sides? This place will fill you up and leave you smiling! Portions are plentiful and no matter what my family has tried here, we have really liked. My biggest surprise was the smoked turkey. I am usually not a fan, but had to eat lighter due to... More

Stopped in for my weekly meal. I love the full slab of ribs platter. Enough for 2 meals. I also love the smoked sausage and someone I will get the combo. Take out is great and iris always ready for me when I walk in. Cost is a little high for ribs but I love the taste.

We had always just driven by, it looked expensive. We stopped for lunch. They have budget meals, all the way up to full meals. It was the best pork bbq I've had in a long time. We went back 3 days later. We will be back many times I'm sure.

We ordered ahead again and picked our order. They double checked our order to make sure nothing was missing. The turkey was delicious! Also ordered the chicken, but it's not my favorite due to the fact it's bone in. The turkey is sliced and ready to eat! The toast is the best.
