Shared the BBQ Box, which was enough for my wife and I. The meal was very good and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Thanks!

I went to Nelson and here for the first time. I ordered the chopped brisket sandwich, cornbread and a root beer and the food was awesome. If I go to Nelson with friends, I am suggesting this place.

For a BBQ place, food was average. Ordered full ribs to share with 2 sides. Ribs were large but not very tasty & a bit dry. Beans were good but cornbread was dry & hard in the middle, like it was over baked.

For great value and a sumptuous feast for two I highly recommend the full rack rib deal. Ribs are meaty, tender and come with a delicious sauce. Alas, no delivery, but take-out is fast and easy. Service is good and friendly staff. Highly recommended!
