“Yummy BBQ”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

I went oin a whim last night. I ordered the 1/2 rack of Memphis ribs $17.11 with tax. It came with two sides of your choice[ handmade potato chips, fries,coleslaw,beans or something else] I chose the fries and coleslaw]. The fries were super hot and fresh, and the coleslaw[ it was fair- although to be fair I HATE coleslaw except for KFC's - go figure], the ribs-HOLY MOLEY good. This plate also came with cornbread which was also AMAZING!!!!. Great place- i will be back again with a few friends.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

Went here for lunch with a friend. This is in the Cummings Center, where many people work. At 145pm, there was nary a soul in there for lunch-that should tell you something. I had a pulled chicken sanwich with cornbread and baked beans, while my friend had a pulled pork sandwich with cornbread and cole slaw. It was expensive for what we got ($9 each). My chicken sandwich had pieces of dark meat chicken, in a light sauce (as requested)--very little meat, huge roll. The beans were average, kinda tomatoey with pieces of meat, the cornbread was on the sweet side and dry on the edges. I don't have a delicate stomach but I had indigestion later on. Would not recommend this place for pulled chicken! Will not return.

“BBQ Done Right.”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Good Deals if you get the combo grill meal deal mix and match, Good, Tasty BBQ. Corn bread should be eaten there while hot. The best time to get Brisket is around 12:00 P/M . Go on line and get coupons for 1/2 off eat in.

“Solid BBQ”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

The side dishes really make the meal here - corn bread, dirty rice, garlic mashed potatoes... I could make a meal out of these alone! Excellent brisket and surprisingly good fish. The location is a bit of a pain (Cummings Center is kind of a zoo) but plenty of parking and the restaurant has lots of tables.
