We were there for Sunday lunch. Not a long wait even with 8 in our party. Service was above average. We always like their brisket but will change it up for smoked chicken or ribs once in a while.

Food was good, but is anything worth waiting for an hour and a half? We had a party of twelve, so we called ahead. If you have a smaller party, you should be ok.

One of our favorite spots to eat when we visit Lincoln. They have friendly, knowledgeable staff and a great menu. The variety of barbecue sauces will fit any appetite and tickle your taste buds. If you do not try this restaurant, you will be missing a lot.

My husband & I stopped in around 8 on New Year's Eve while our teenage son and his friends were at a nearby movie theatre. We had some of the wings and a few sides (potato salad, cole slaw, corn cobettes) and some hot tea & coffee. The place was starting to slow down (they were closing at 10pm) but... More

I picked up the All American feast last night, Famous Dave did great work. The ribs were perfect, the chicken and brisket were perfect, and the corn bread muffins as always were stellar. The staff was friendly and the timing was exactly as quoted over the phone. The feast easily feeds 4 -5 hungry people. I'm a big fan!
