    Honey Bear's mesquite-smoked ribs and chicken, doused in a sweet-hot, Tennessee-style barbecue sauce, are deliciously tender, practically falling off the bone. Read more

    Got value meal 2, was not bad. However, the buns got soggy too fast. The bathroom was disgustingly dirty. Had a restaurant.com certificate. Don't think I'd pay full price.

    The peach cobbler is well worth getting. And You get a heaping amt. The beans had too much of a ketchup taste. I would pass on these.

    The staff is friendly and the owners are always plesant. The BBQ is great and affortable. The best time to go is on Fridays when they have their BBQ wings special.

    For a healthy alternative, chicken salad is decent, and a good size; they'll let you put bbq sauce on it. Chicken here isn't the highest quality but bbq sauce is great.

    Famous for their BBQ sandwiches. Right off the light rail so it's perfect for lunch- Be ready for lines around 11. You will fall in love with their sauce- which they sell by the gallon.
