“Definitely a place to go!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Stopped here because of all of the cars/trucks parked in front and found they knew what they were doing! There is a wide variety of menu items including a children's selection. You order and pay as you come in and they deliver it to your table. The brisket was lean and delicious - a great BBQ sauce too! The staff were very friendly including the man who came by to check to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The atmosphere is casual and it's obvious that this is a well known local place to have great barbecue. They do catering for events.

“Best barbecue around!”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

We often go here and take out a rack of ribs and a quart of coleslaw--sauce on the ribs and extra sauce on the side. Among the best we have ever had--staff is always friendly and food is delicious.

“Excellent Ribs”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This place makes some of the best ribs I've had in a long time. The ribs are tender and juicy and fall off the bone tender. The staff takes great care of their customers and make them feel welcome. The prices are very reasonable.

“Just like mom used to make, if your mom knew more about ribs than raising kids...”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

One of the more consistent places to eat in Farmington, from the numerous variations of BBQ, ribs, brisket, etc. But the turkey legs are by far my favorite and always available. Have the black eye peas and cobbler, you will like it. Well I do and make it there once every trip to Farmington!
