I had good expectations of the restaurant, but was readily disappointed. The food was dry and not with enough barbecue flavor, it was almost like I didn't know what I was eating, itwas recommended by a co worker and friend.

Used to love this place. Food got really bad and bad reviews were piling up. They changed names and it didn't get better. Just terrible BBQ. Tough, tasteless. I wish it were better as I would eat there regularly. Locals avoid it!

The wings are finger-licking good. You can't be neat eating at Sweet Lumpy's BBQ, the food will find a way to get all over your face.
