  • The hot bbq is their best sauce. Its not too hot but really adds a good taste! Check it out!
  • Best BBQ place in Macon.
  • not impressed! food was bland and had a funky taste. wait staff barely around. plenty of other BBQ places in town that are better than here. sonnys is right across the street! I'd rather go there!
  • Not impressed at all.
  • Make sure you get the smoked sausage w/ whatever you get!
  • Love this place! Love the squash casserole and thinly sliced pork.
  • Service is not that good. Had to asked for everything
  • the food is not anything to write home about, the pulled pork was not up to par, the mac & cheese tasted like it came out of a box & the potato salad tasted gross, avoid this place like the plague
  • mac & cheese tastes like it came out of a box & the potato salad is watery, the pulled pork is sub par, I have had so much better, nothing tastes homemade, I don't recommend
  • Best baked beans ever
  • "Get the all you can eat ribs. They are really good!" - My Mom
  • Tasteless food and a very unpleasant wait staff .
  • Avoid this place! BBQ sauce is bland, catfish sandwich had good crunch but no catfish flavor... it could have been ANY fish! I'm a sausage & potato salad fan. This was bland & charred. Terrible meal!
