I tried to shake it up and not get their brisket but i shouldn't have been adventurous. My wife and i split burgers and neither really hit the spot. The traditional burger was OK at best while the fancy one was a complete miss. The worst part was the mac n' cheese was overcook and blah.....it didn't really have any... More

My family is from TN and this is some of the most authentic BBQ we have found in New England. The meat falls off the bone and my 3 year old daughter devours everything we put in front of her. The food is over the top amazing and makes us feel like we are down south. We will absolutely be... More

I read reviews on this establishment and decided to try, what a bad decision. I ordered a side of fried chicken (6 pieces), the bill was not cooked, then I tried the cornbread-that was gross- tasted like a thick dried out cake, I got a salad- I'm not sure if they ran out of lettuce but it was mostly cabbage-...

Not sure why we never stopped here before. I picked up some take out on the way home from work and it was really good. Surprised that they had seafood and got the shrimp and chips which I really liked. Other dinners included chicken and ribs. There were no complaints and raves for the mashed potatoes and cheesy spinach. Mason... More

Went with dad and got take out. Everything was good though had a bit more onions than we are used to. Though great portions and meat was cooked great.

They have okay BBQ. Check your expectations before going through the door. They're fine for takeout, but if you're a true BBQ fan, I'd go elsewhere. It's a bit pricey for what it is. Corn bread is pretty good though!

Tiny place but pretty good food. Only option for decent 'Q in the area. Ribs are good, sausage is very good as are the sides.

I ordered Smoked Chicken but it was like super burnt chicken and was so hard to get rid of the burnt part of the chicken. I did not wanna waste it and I did not have much time since I waited about 20 min for food to be ready (for over cooking) I told the store (I think owner) and... More

Ordered brisket, ribs and fried chicken. The ribs were just OK, the brisket was a mess and way too expensive and the fried chicken was not fried, more like baked to death with no flavor. This must have a new owner, as we had excellent BBQ from there at a friend's house over a year ago. The service was OK... More
