“Go to Rebecca Lane Location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

There are 2 locations in town, this one in particular has poor service, over cooked meats, unfriendly and unattentive sttaff members. Usually out of most items. This location also provides delivery. Go ahead, call in an order, the phone is laid down an ignored, no one coming back to take your order. My advice, drive the 5 miles to the southside location where the food is excellent and the staff treats the customers properly.

“Very overpriced...poor quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Paid 12..00 for a two meat plate that had two slices of brisket and eight sausage rounds...sides were just okay...all cornbread was hard and dried and meat was cold! Banana pudding is the only thing that they have that is any good and at a fair price.

“Mmmmmmmm, ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Ribs fell off the bone, but each bone had a gristle on the end that was best chewed by the dog. Beans tasted like they came from a can, but the potato salad was very good. My wife had the brisket plate and was pleased with the BBQ, but not impressed with the veggies. Banana pudding was excellent, but was exceeded in greatness by the peach cobbler. The desserts were the highlight of the meal.

“Service was great . Have to admit the banana pudding was a great surprise.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Big servings for a reasonable price. Potato salad the best I ever tasted- thought it contained mustard but no had dome carrots and relish. Will stop by again when driving thru.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

These small (there are 2-north and south) store front restaurants are local favorites. Their barbecue is good--ask for lean. Their potato salad is great---the consistency of mashed potatoes.
