The owner was a really nice guy, he gave me the $100 tour, how he started, explained his sauces, and even brought out samples of his dry rub wings and fresh pickled beats. All of which were very delicious. My meal consisted of pulled pork, baked beans, and Cole slaw. And of course sweet ice tea mmmmm mmmmm deeelicious. Definitely going back when I come back in town. Thank you sir for being an awesome host.!!!!!

Although the luncheon special was tasty the pulled pork and pulled chicken amounts were very skimpy and the chicken was dry. A little disappointed in the amount of meat provided in the taco for the price. Delicious sauces helped. We would give this a second try

Been to many eateries including Bears smokehouse - this is no bears - quantity of food is not worth the price- quality of food was ok.

We decided to try this place based on their 4.0 rating. The restaurant was empty at 5:30 on a Friday, but that is understandable. The man at the counter was very helpful. I ordered the Brisket Dinner at $15.99 and it only took about ten minutes to arrive. The portions were very small for the price. My sides consisted of the garlic mashed potatoes and another of beans. These were served in a small, maybe 1/3 cup container. That's pretty small. The potatoes were quite good, but at $15.99, one would expect a larger helping. The brisket was wonderful and very tender. They served six slices which seemed okay for the price, but given the small side portions, I felt that the meal should hover around the $10.00 mark. The meal came with a nice sized portion of cornbread that had a slight hint of lemon. Wow, what a great addition to the mix. My side had the pulled pork sliders and contrary to the other reviews was provided a reasonable portion. Interestingly, we were unable to locate any salt or pepper shakers anywhere. I gave this three-stars because of the balance between price and small side portions and the expectation that you bus your own table. The quality of the food is high and I'd like to return to try their wings.

Eat here a few times a month. I've sampled just about everything on the menu. BBQ veterans will appreciate the burnt ends. The sauces all bring something different to the table. Owner is a riot, real funny guy if you ever get to meet him.

To all the people complaining about fries, it clearly says on the menu, sandwhich comes with half order of fries, don't expect to get a heaping order, this is not McDonald's. Bbq is an expensive food to produce, you try it and see how far you get. Great food great service.
