I don't care if this was the last place in America, I wouldn't go back. Went 2-3 times and the bbq is pretty good, but the server and owner are just plain nasty rude people... You two are in the wrong business because it involves people and requires a PERSONALITY... Even a neutral one would be better than how RUDE... More

The bbq is pretty good there. I like mine a little more smokey and the sides are ok. The first time I went there I was very taken back. I was told over the phone to would be 30 minutes. I got there in exactly 34 minutes and the lady there said "I told you it would be 30 min!"... More

I have a client just around the corner from CW's and we eat here everytime I am in town. The food is excellent and prepared quickly. The service is always fast and friendly.

Great ribs and other bq items, corn bread and collard greens and Mac and cheese were yummy. The fried pickles and corn fritters were awesome appetizers, everyone enjoyed their meal.

Had a date night with my hubby which we dont usually get to do. We are locals, but since we were paying a sitter by the hour to watch our kid we stayed in the neighborhood to not waste time driving. Got to place, stepped in, waited to be seated. and waited and waited. Finally someone said to seat yourself.... More

Had read some of the reviews for CW's BBQ on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. We live about 15 miles from their location but felt it was worth the drive. Their Web Site says they open from 4PM to 9PM except Tuesday. OK, my wife, a friend and I headed there. We got there at 4PM on... More

What this lacks in atmosphere it makes up in great food. The portions are huge and although Im not a big fan of BBQ my friends loved it and there was plenty for me to indulge in. Their collard greens were amazing.

An experience both for atmosphere and bbq. An informal setting that has local owners who are characters. Specials are wonderful but their bbq and southern cooking are always worth the wait. Don't be scared off by the exterior (or interior, ha) the food is worth it. Down home cooking mixed with some clutter! Go ahead and get it "to go"... More

Tiny place, great food! We have loved all the BBQ items we have ordered here and last night I chose the Grouper instead! It was phenomenal Huge portion (easily serve two - there is a $2. charge for splitting and the Grouper was approximately $25 making sharing a good option), and it was really worth it!

Absolute best pork chop anywhere. Real Texas smoked BBQ. Brusque T, ribs, chicken. Specials of rack or lamb and scallops, good sides. Small unassuming somewhat typical smokehouse.
