I was surprised at how good the food was! The cabbage was especially delicious. No complaints about the food, just the cleanliness of the restaurant. If that was better then it’s definitely worth 5 stars!

The greatest bbq you may ever have in Maryland and dc. It's a little out of the way but it is worth it all

The place is popular and certain items sell out quick on the weekends. Prices are reasonable but you are getting what you pay for. The food is of a cheap quality. I'd rather just pay a little more and go some where like Texas Roadhouse.

Food was all right but I question the cleaning of the restaurant. On my last visit the dining area was not clean. Made be feel uncomfortable about the food.

Great place for food, whether eating in or taking home. Food is well-seasoned, reasonably priced and conveniently accessible to traffic. There are options on how spicy you want the sauce to be. The fried fish is also an excellent value.
