Are here for lunch. Pretty good BBQ especially from a gas station. I had the ribs and rice dressing.

Saw this place on a list of unexpected great places to eat in Lafayette. I've also heard a number of people say they frequent the place. Perhaps I showed up on a bad day, but I wasn't as excited as I had expected. The greens and the ribs were actually quite good, but the pulled pork and the brisket were... More

Extremely disappointed with this place. It's inside a gas station that should have been a big warning. My first time there I asked the attendant if the food was good. She lied. I went at 6PM. Ordered 2 entrees with my wife. Obviously the food must be cooked in the morning and held in warmers all day. The brisket was... More

Steve, like I said on Yelp, it's disheartening to read about your visit. I can assure you, we use the highest quality cuts of meat and cook every dish fresh, so I'd like to personally apologize if anything tasted dried out. I hope we can resolve this issue for you. All my best, Donna Duncan, Owner More

It's the Best in town and is closed on Sundays. Can dine inside on side tables or take it to go. It's like a line, order food, they make it and pay at the end, go to your table. The gas station is an Exxon and they have been keeping it clean lately!!

It's pretty dern good! The portions are generous and the flavor is really good. There aren't many bar-b-que places in town, and this one is probably the best.

You definitly need to try the bbq brisket here, it is the best I've ever had! Hard to believe some of the best bbq is in a gas station but this place is to die for! I've had the brisket and bbq chicken but nothing beats the brisket. Not a fan of the potato salad because it has sweet relish... More

This establishment, housed in a gas station is better than many standalone barbecue restaurants. Great food at a good price and very convenient since it's on the Thruway.

A little place inside of a gas station. Who would have thought??? But it is, without any comparison, the best BBQ in Lafayette. Hands down. Ribs, sausage, chicken or chopped, it's always fall off the bone tender and awesome. So much so, that it's not unusual to find them sold out after 5 pm. It's that good. Definitely get it... More

Had the rib platter, good ribs may a little too long under the heat lamps. It a slow & it was Monday, not very busy. This is more of a lunch place was it think.

I know it's been a little while, but it's a shame to read that your ribs weren't up to par. We cook all of our dishes for optimal amounts of time, so I'd like to apologize if you weren't impressed by your rib platter. I know we're better than what you experienced, so I hope you've been able to come... More
