My family was impressed with the quantity and taste of the fish and BBQ. I was not with the "loaded bake potato with meat". Had very little toppings about a teaspoon of sour cream and as well as meat about two bites worth for an additional $4. young man was server did a great job.

The food is awesome, the owner is super friendly and she takes good care of our military folks ! Chicago dogs loaded and the Italian beef (wet) are the best !

This is a must stop if you're in Phoenix. Their pulled pork melts in your mouth and their BBQ sauce is my favorite of all that I have ever tasted (which is a long list!). I prefer their hot BBQ sauce, but both are excellent. Recently tried their jalapeño corn bread as a side and it is a new favorite... More

The people that own are great! When they are away they bring in people that care just as much as they do. When you call in an order or when you go in they rock it every time. They are there and make sure you get the best you order. They rotate the food to where its perfect. Lunch specials... More

Great choices in their menu. Beef, Fish, Chicken, Pork, etc. Good prices, and very good service. Small place, seating less than 50, but clean and well kept. Tried about 1/4 of their menu. It was ALL good. Don't expect a fine dining experience. It is also a "carry-out" place with a LOT of business. NOT a place to take your... More

My bf & I are regulars here. We love everything on the menu and I believe we have eaten everything on the menu at least once . Portion size is hit or miss. Sometimes your plate is loaded up and sometimes it's not. The bark on the brisket is pure heaven !!! The shredded pork has that smokey , cooked... More

Had 3 meat combo plate, chose ribs, brisket & chicken. Tender meat, pretty good sauce. Comes with 2 sides and a dinner roll with butter. I chose mac n cheese - very good, thick & "cheesy" -plus cold slaw, very good too, with just enough sweetness for my liking.

Went here for lunch w/ some co-workers. The choice came down to Famous Dave's up by the mall or trying this new place. To say the least I was unimpressed. I will say that I thought the meat was decent. I had the rib tips and although not as meaty as many rib tips I've had before, they were fairly... More
