Had dinner here since it was close to hotel. Service was good but the food was just average. It wasn't bad but wasn't over the top good either. I would come back if in the area looking for BBQ but wouldn't make a special stop for it.

They have solid BBQ. I preferred the brisket over the pulled pork and ribs. I would come again but will go for the brisket next time.

Usually stop here on the way to the beach. Two years ago, the hey were out of most everything except water! It was bad, but we're back and so are J&N! Yaaaa! Great Q at good prices with wonderful service. Don't pass by without a sample.

Ate there on impulse. I had the ribs, potato salad and fries. Everything was good, except the outer seface of the ribs was a little chewy. Once you get past that, they were good.

Good place to go enjoy good BBQ. Had very good service. Not a long wait on our food. Was a little pricey. But over all we enjoyed our meal. BBQ salad was great, it had a lot of BBQ on it. Friend got ribs which were good.

Food is good, and service has always been excellent. Good menu selection even for those who do not want BBQ.

Make sure to get the french fries! Also, make sure you dip your biscuits in ranch! My husband loves the turkey sandwich. I love the Southern Chopped Salad and pork BBQ sandwich.
