Same great food, same warm and friendly service. I went in around noon and the inside seating was close to full. I would anticipate taking the order out and look at it as a bonus if you get a seat inside during lunch hours. Off hours I am guessing there are plenty of seats. I thought that parking would be...

The first time we visited, we ordered pork and when we got it home it was chicken. The next time we visited, we told them what had happened and they gave us a discount. We are glad to say they have moved to a small location down town where we can now eat on site. We are displaced Tennesseans and... More

If you like hot BBQ, kind of messy and a lot of it, this is the place for you. It was just a bit over the top for me, but if you are feeding hungery men they might like it. Kind of a downhome 1960's feel.

Hello Phylis H., Thank you for letting us know how you felt about your experience here with us. I know that BBQ can definitely be shirt sleeve eatin' and that's why we include a wet nap. We do give 1/2 lb. portions on our plates, unless you request a lite plate which is only 4 oz.. I hope you at... More

Easy in and out for this 'to go' BBQ. Got both the pulled pork and brisket by the pound. Great depth of flavor and texture. The side of mac and cheese was lame. Very dry on both occasions I tried it, hoping the 1st time was not the usual. Best Q I've had in the area.

This is a poorly run family business. They used to be in a downtown location with a lovely atmosphere, but now they are in an old gas station just off the interstate. I stopped in about a month ago and ordered to go. This was in the middle of the afternoon and I was the only one there. Even though... More

Hey Arnold, I am so sorry you feel like you were treated so badly. I understand that it totally makes sense to just assume you were the only person there at the time. However, I can tell you from costly experience that this minor technicality has cost me a small fortune, because if you get someone else's meal and then... More

Ordered family meals to take to family dinner. Rack of ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Potato salad, coleslaw and baked beans were excellent. Corn bread with honey butter were awesome! Pricey but worth it! Their food and service are excellent! Wish we had one in Portland! My daughter used them to cater a baby shower. They are top notch!

Great family environment. Servers treat you like you are family. I always order extra because I know I'm going to want more the next day. the brisket is the best I've ever tasted. And Mammas pies are to die for. Looking for some good home style cooking this is the place.

I have eaten at both locations and had them cater many events for me. Food is excellent as always but what sets them aside is world class customer service. They have always been there for me and I don't think the word no is in they're vocabulary. Thank you bomaks family for always being there and doing so much for... More

This was our first visit and there were pros and cons. First the pros: the gals who work there are super sweet, helpful and really helped us to select the right thing from the menu. The ribs were amazing and so were the sauces. The menu was super easy to understand. We really liked the outdoor picnic eating area. The... More

Hey Wanageshik, Thanks for taking the time to leave us such a long review. We really are glad that you enjoyed several of the items. We sell a ton of chicken and brisket, but that complaint has not been heard before. The brisket is usually moist and very flavorful with a nice smoke ring and the chicken is moist and... More
