This is a "go to" BBQ/Seafood carry out place and they cater. Good options for everyone. For lunch, I picked up a Cubano. There was a lot going on in that sandwich..almost too much. But, it was tasty. Also, got the Cheesesteak hoagie. It was really good! When I visited it looked dirty, old, and tired. The soda machine wasn't... More

Tammy and Steve are great cooks and really do a great job for weddings, etc., they love to set up tents and tables for their clients and no trouble for any venue.

I took my Aunt into the store and it was about lunch time, She ordered a pit beef sandwich, It was dry and look like it was left over and smothered in BBQ sauce. She ordered crab soup. It was ok but the corn in it was still hard, Will not return and over priced.

We were on our way to the beach and found this place from Trip Advisor. It's mostly a carry out, but they have a few outside tables. It took noticeable time before we got our food, but it turned out that they had some big phone orders they were working on. We had a half rack of ribs, and it... More

I heard about this place from a friend and was so glad I tried it! The staff is very friendly and helpful! I had tried both the broiled regular crabcake sandwich platter and the jumbo lump crabcake sandwich platter. Both were extremely tasty; so tasty that I did not add any condiments! I tried this place 3 times during my... More

We had eaten here on an earlier trip to the Eastern Shore and stopped in again on the way to Chestertown. I had a lump crab cake sandwich which was a little bland and fell apart when I tried to pick up the sandwich. My husband had a Cuban pork melt which he said was just okay. They had no... More

Ok, its kind of an easy win here...My favorite food is BBQ and I would eat here every day if the prices weren't so high. The price is right for the food you get, don't get me wrong. They have awesome BBQ, number 1 on my list!
