The sweet smell of hickory wood that welcomes you upon arrival is a sure sign that all our smoked meats are still slow cooked on-site in our barbecue pits.

All of the dishes - from appetizers through dessert - were very good. The service was friendly when they were there but unfortunately our server was more interested in chatting and making time with a coworker. We did not see that same behavior in other servers.

We would definitely come back to this location but would not allow the same server to handle our table.

4 of us stopped for lunch, heading up 95. We shared the rib sampler for 2 and added half a rack of ribs. It was a very satisfying meal, in quantity, value, and taste. We didn't try the spicy sauce, but tried each of the others and the dry rub. It would be tough to choose a favorite. They were all delicious. The collard greens were bland, but that's the only complaint I can find. It was definitely a good lunch choice.

Conveniently located near the Jax airport, this chain restaurant was clean, a couple TV's at the bar for the sports enthusiast & a large menu. The BBQ pork & chicken were all smoked which I don't particularly care for. Even the chicken salad used smoked chicken. The salad was cold & crisp and the fried chicken tenders were flavorful (not smoked) but nothing special.

OK, the food is good enough and the barbecue sauces are very good. The service was not very good, she spent a lot of time chatting with co-workers, so much so that we felt ignored and I was checking if my deodorant had failed. While I had food I was Ok with the place because testing the different sauces was enjoyable. However, after the food was done and waiting for the return of our waitress, I noticed that my bare legs (wearing shorts) were actually sticking to the front of the bench I was sitting on. I got so sticky before we left I went to the restroom to wash my legs. I told the waitress about the need to clean the booth but I could tell she didn't give a hoot what I had to say......maybe if you eat at the bar.
