“Long Lines but Worth It!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We walk in to a double wrap around line for Pappy's Smokehouse. We were immediately handed a menu. From the hallway waiting to inside the dining area line to wait to get to the counter to order. The wait total was 30 minutes. The meal came to us within 2 minutes. Not bad for a lot line wait. Portions were very large The slice beef sandwich meat portion did not fit within the two halves of the bun. There was a choice of 4 BBQ sauces. The half slab of ribs was a lot. Hardly any fat and very meaty. Baked beans were sweet and bake potato was large. We left very full. As we drove away a sign had been placed on the door. "SOLD OUT" it was only 730.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Family had the ribs, burnt ends and pulled pork. All were excellent. Wish had know about it earlier. Sides were great as well. We were lucky enough to get there by 11 a.m., but by the time we walked around front and started ordering, a line was growing to about 25 people deep in a matter of minutes. Word is out on this place.

“Not bad...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

I don't know if it was worth the 2 hour wait, but the ribs were good. The turkey didn't taste like it was even smoked. Out of the sides the potato salad was probably the best.

“Fabulous Food.”

Fabulous Food. Yes there is usually a queue, but waiting time for food is very quick. Loved the experience of eating in this very popular restaurant where locals eat.
