This place is pretty solid for northern Wisconsin. I had the brisket sandwich which was pretty good. A bit pricey at 8.99 though. $2 more than pulled pork, which seemed odd. Good smoke, nice ring and juicy. The mashed potatoes were real good and a...More

The muffin top cornbread is absolutely delicious, best I’ve ever had. The brisket was fantastic with a good variety of sauces. This place is good enough to be in the South!

We didn't know where to have lunch on a rainy day and we came across Old Southern Bbq. It was crowded, we had to stand in line for 20 minutes, but the food was excellent! We had the Bbq bowls, and they were very tasty!...More

Old Southern BBQ is very good. I consider it a bit pricey but you do get quality for your money. The pulled pork is prepared(pulled) in front of you and sauces are on the tables. Not the kind of food I can eat too often...More

The pulled pork has delicious smoke flavor. So much so, that you don't even need to put BBQ sauce on it. The sides they offer are just "meh." The atmosphere is meant to be trendy. But it's a bit annoying. Too loud. Don't expect to...More

Food is good if you go early. Not quite as good as the original Famous Daves though in my and my husband's opinion. They often run out of brisket, so if you aren't there early you may be out of luck. Ribs also rather dry...More
