Me and my family live in Jonesboro and decided to try it out for the first time. Loved the decor inside, front cashier was great a suggesting food from menu. Food was pretty good! A guy came by a clean up for us. Super nice. Great restaurant, would be back!

We've been here in the past and had excellent food, but our visit last night was very mediocre. The ribs were tender, but had obviously been boiled before cooking (not my thing). The baked beans were excellent. The fries were over cooked and had been obviously out for a bit too long. I may try the place again someday, but... More

Went for the brisket and got a combo instead. The ribs were ok not fabulous. The brisket had good flavor but the serving size was small for the price.

We went for dinner and it was very good. We had bbq sandwich of course, with fries and onion rings, and everything was delicious. Not an over priced bbq place that you frequently find in the south. Recommend this place highly, and will return on my next visit.

Casual BBQ restaurant. Smoked chicken is good. Our family loves the pork BBQ. We often get take home packs for our gatherings. The prices are reasonable. It's a t-shirt and flip flop place.

We had the pulled pork sandwiches. One of the best I've ever had. They have two sizes. One regular and a large. The potato salad was very creamy. French fries and fried peach pie looked really good. Clean setup and nice drink station.

The visit starts with a walk by the grease pit in the parking lot. It stinks. The greeting by the first employee was about as wonderful as the grease pit. The gentleman took my order, barely moved to scan my card and then did the unthinkable: he joked about my tip. I hadn't left at tip and he laughed calling... More

I enjoy eating here - I always get the 1/2 Bar-B-Que chicken - and a water - the chicken is always so tender and juicy - chicken with their sauce and water and you have a meal - it is very reasonable priced

This is hands-down my favorite BBQ place. I have tried others, but nothing compares! Get the spicy BBQ sauce, it's the absolute best.
