Ate her recently as a couple and had the mixed BBQ platter. It was all pre-cooked. Nothing was made to order and it was shredded and very dry. Not anything like real BBQ. It also didn't help that the restaurant was filled with angry women...More

This place has awesome BBQ. Loved the onion rings, baked beans have chunks of pork in them and taste great. Cornbread was excellent, meat fell off the bone on the ribs and excellent flavor. 1/4 chicken and sausage plate was great! Waitress was on point...More
