Went because someone recommended it and we were so thankful they did. The bbq is excellent. We enjoyed the brisket platter. Man it was great. The portions are large.

The BEST Barbecue on Saint Simons Island! The burnt ends are my favorite. The Fried Oreo's are perfect.

This was such a wonderful experience and great food. The portions were very generous. The chicken salad sandwich was the largest sandwich I have ever seen. The brisket was delicious and again a very generous portion. Service was kind and efficient.

Luckily we arrived before „Rushhour“ so we found no line. We had pulled pork, beef brisket and ribs. Awesome taste and definitely a reason to come back.
