Best BBQ in town as far as I'm concerned. Always fresh and huge portions served with a smile. Be sure and get a to go box because if you manage to eat your whole meal there won't be room for one of their scrumptious desserts.

Ralph and his family and employees know how to very simply and consistently serve everyone who comes to the pink flamingo barbecue. The meals are simple and very well done. The atmosphere is light and fun. There's almost always laughter. My favorite is one of their Staples, the pulled pork sandwich. All the meals come with a side of sausage.... More

Family owned business and they have great BBQ! Must eat here if nearby on days they're open. It's delicious! They have desserts too. Wonderful meats and sides! The BBQ is so flavorful!

I had pulled pork and sausage pate and loved every bite. There's not many restaurants in town where the owner makes your plate and then come to the table to check on you later.

I don't think the people in this restaurant could have made me feel any more welcome...they were very kind and friendly and the generous portion of pulled pork on the sandwich set the expectations high at the beginning of the meal. Unfortunately, the BBQ did not live up to the expectation.

This place has an excellent barbecue. The platter comes with a sausage included and a side that is a perfect pairing.

I eat BBQ all over the place and I will say the Pink Flamingo is right there towards the top. It is a family owned business and you can tell. I had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. I love the piece of sausage that is thrown in. Give this place a try.

The food and odor of smoke is too much for me. The chicken was moist and the Cole slaw was very good.
