We absolutely loved this place. We’ve visited a lot of BBQ places over the years but my husband and I agree this is one of the best!!! Ribs were so tender and be sure to try the beans. They are so different but fabulous!!

This is great Southern Arkansas Treasure! You must stop in and try the sliced pork sandwich with baked beans. Their chicken strips are hand-battered and amazing! The buys are made fresh and so good. The bbq sandwiches are so tasty, too. If you are in...More

it's difficult to get excited about reviewing chopped/pulled pork loin when the BBQ sauce isn't up to par, but here goes. I ordered the pulled pork plate with beans and coleslaw, all of which were quite tasty. There was only one flavor of BBQ sauce...More
