Stopped here on a recommendation. Excellent pulled pork, potato salad and mac and cheese were phenomenal! Complimented the server on the outstanding food and he kindly introduced me to the chef! Highly recommend! Excellent customer service! Definitely worth your time to check out this restaurant!

Don't let the looks of the place fool you. Some of the best BBQ I've ever had has come right out of this tiny place. The sauce is not too sweet and the seasoning is spot on. You will not be disappointed.

Great BBQ. Our family enjoyed smoked chicken with white sauce, ribs and pulled pork. Large servings. Place is very crowded. Fast service.

Had to try SAWS and it was good. Deviled eggs very good. Smoked chicken fall off the bone good. Ribs pretty good. Pulled pork was ok. Nice little place in a neat part of town.

Best BBQ in town. Everything on the menu is great. Ribs, pork plate, BBQ potato, and chicken are all great.
