Very disappointed in our dinner. Ribs were very tough and the spices made them taste almost 'gamey'. The smashed potatoes had zero flavor and the corn bread was so dense we couldn't eat it. The staff were very friendly though!

I read some of the reviews and expected good food. We went and nobody finished their food, nothing was good. Prices are not great so we wasted a lot of money. Don't waste yours! Would not return.

We've been here at least 3 times, and each time, after we made a decision and ordered, we were told they were "out" of at least one thing listed on the menu that we wanted to order. I get it. It's BBQ, so it isn't made to order, and a restaurant can run out of side dishes on occasion. But, it seems remarkable that each time they have been out of something one of us wanted to order. It would be simple to post a sign stating what they had run out of, or covering the item on the menu on the wall. The food is pretty good, so we kept going back, but I think we have hit our limit.

In the midst of tourist “heaven,” this BBQ joint is the real deal with 4 add your own sauces (including great Carolina and a spicy mango) and all the traditional sides, at easy prices. Bad news: staff says that after 5 years the owner has sold the place and it’s going Italian sit down, no BBQ in sight! Identical food will be offered at Wild Side restaurant, just a few miles away, but it’s sit down only & BBQ just a small part of large, varied menu (will it be as good & budget-friendly?)

Disappointing meal here. Paid Extra for the Brisket platter, and got small fatty 4oz portion of brisket that was lukewarm at best. Employees showed no empathy when I questioned the portion size for a platter named Brisket platter and added fee for it. The 'burnt-end beans" had NO burnt-ends in it. The atmosphere is not appealing or inviting. I should have just asked for a refund when I saw the tray they presented me because I knew immediately I wasn't going to be happy with it. Felt like the food had been sitting all day in metal warming trays. I didn't see a smoke ring on the meat, this is just not good bbq. Sorry, can't recommend.
