    This place use to be great....stand in line for 30 minutes to find out they are out of chicken on a Saturday night when they know they are going to be busy. Waste of time.

    Recipe for lunch food coma: Order the lunch special. Get the cheese jalapeno bread for the sandwich and grab a banana pudding before checking out to ensure maximum loss of consciousness.

    Good setup, walking you thru the cook space to order. All looks good but suffers from trying to spread a good thing to too many: tastes good but thin. Best to go off-peak times for their best stuff.

    Chicken poppers are perfect. Blackberry cobbler is good too. The brisket doesn't have much burned end, though.

    The food is good. Not great, but good. Overpriced a bit. They use the sane rub/seasoning for the ribs and chicken. The corn on the cob was the best thing I ate. The brisket was a little dry.

    You'll leave smelling like smoke but it's worth it. The meat is sold per pound so go right before dinner but after lunch. They tend to discount the meat.

    A tad pricey. Brisket was good Ribs were a little chewy and gristled. Roasted corn, Mac, cheese, cream corn were all bomb. Gotta mix the hard 8 pepper sauce on the table with the BBQ sauce. 6.5/10

    Choose the left queue. It is a physically shorter line, and always faster.
