Ribs cooked well. No smoke taste to meat. Barbeque sauce is watery. All food was sweet. Potato salad was warm and watery. Not real smoked ribs.
Great food! Very nice owners and a pleasant atmosphere!
I was left without one soda I purchased and the fried okra was soggy. Brisket was a bit dry, but good. If you like brisket to melt in your mouth, spending this much on it won't quench that thirst, and you'll most likely end up disappointed. I think the reviews are mostly trustworthy, but I should've stuck with what I knew that was also good barbecue for a cheaper price.
We visited on a Thursday evening. Staff was very nice. Will have to go back for the ribs as they were not available with the Groupon. Got the rib tips all in all a quaint very nice neighborhood restaurant. Owner Antonio very pleasant. BTW the bbq sauce is sticky sweet.
The food was terrible...no season on food, food re-cooked, didn't offer the ribs on the Groupon.The food was just bland no flavor. I had the pork steak and it was very tough hard to slice into and chew. The chicken wings was over cooked and tough from re cooking them again.
Great BBQ. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Will definitely be back for more.
The Groupon didn't list any restrictions about menu items. A blackboard by the counter listed ribs and brisket as prohibited items when using Groupon. Also they would only allow the value of the Groupon toward dinner items. I could not use the Groupon toward a dessert. This also was not mentioned on the Groupon. This is the first time I have not been pleased with a restaurant when using a Groupon.
They would not honor all foods said they had trouble with liquor and had to make it up somehow
The chicken and dumplings tasted amazing & the serving size was huge!
Worth going back for!!!
