We just finished a delicious lunch at Bradley's -- the pulled pork was soooo tender and juicy you really didn't need sauce, so their outstanding sauces did what sauces should do -- complimented not overpowered the meat. The prices are very, very reasonable. The service...More

Service was good but the food was OK at best. My wife got the pulled pork sandwich and she said it was good. I tried the beef brisket and it was dry and tastless.

Good pork dinner. Sauces were good would definitely stop again. Waitress took good care of us. Sweet sauce the best.

We dropped in for dinner after a really long day on the road and to be honest we were somewhat skeptical at the outset because the place was virtually empty at 7pm. Its easy to miss the place as you're driving by and we did...More

My Dad made BBQ sauce. Best we've ever had. But sauce is one thing. It's how you cook the ribs. And, this was spectacular people. If you are searching here, you have to realize that Sweetwater doesn't have lots of choices. I drove by this...More

We ate here for lunch and it was a good experience. The bbq is well executed and I couldn't find any issue with the sauce available. You won't regret eating here and the price is not bad either.

Expected more based on the ratings here: staff was very friendly, food was very mediocre, especially the potato chips who were partly crunchy, partly greasy. Seats were old and worn out. All in all, rather below average.More

Most of my family got burgers. They all loved them. I got the pulled pork and it was amazing. The mozzarella sticks were hot and tasty. It was fast and friendly service.
