    You can't go wrong with a stacker. If you want to avoid crowds, the only option is going on a weekday for lunch. But the line is totally worth it.

    Some of the best BBQ and sides to go along with it.

    Honestly...not as good as it should be. The meats are good, but the sides are as good as a middle school cafeteria.

    They only make a limited amount of tasty treats each day- get there earlier rather than later if you want to try one!

    I had the Cuban sandwich today. Huge sandwich, mustard that perfectly complemented the meats, yummy pickles, and divinely smoked meats. The sides were good as well.

    👍ribs, corn, Mac n cheese, bread pudding + all the desserts. 👎baked beans-too sweet, chili-too salty, brisket-a not on the dry side, pulled chicken should not be chopped.

    Go through the To-Go-Pickup line. It's faster and you will not starve to death beating the looooooooooong lines. Regardless of the wait, it is worth every second.

    Smoked chicken is the only way to go... The white meat is so soft and leaves a perfect smoky sizzle on your taste buds. Add some 4 Rivers hot barbecue sauce and life will have been completed.
