    Everything is Moist ... Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork and Meaty Rib Tips ... Simply Delicious Cornbread, Mac & Cheese and Baked Beans - not a fan of the Coleslaw

    Got delivery via Grubhub. Super Fast!! The baked beans, brisket and corn on the cob are solid. The pulled pork was incredibly juicy, but not much flavor. Nice flavor sauce, thinner consistency.

    I am hard to amaze. I was not impressed with the popular Smoque...but Pork Shoppe - YES! I've been twice, and both visits were great :)

    Fries are great, BBQ is ok. Watch out, they like to add hidden charges. I ordered a pork sandwich for $7.99, and the final bill came out to $16.22

    Best BBQ-pulled pork is so tender && staff is super friendly!

    The pulled chicken sandwich combo is well worth the money. The fries are really good. So is the mac n' cheese. They deliver too, but nothing beats fresh!

    Staff is so nice! Mac&Cheese side is on point. It is a must! Also my fav sandwich is the pulled chicken. So tender & juicy.. ask for it with cheese on it! You won't be disappointed. Mouth watering..

    Nastasia Tebeck · April 27, 2013
  • Jake S.

    The pulled pork sandwich combo comes with 2 sides; I recommend the fries (the true star here) and mixing the "Tangy" and "Sweet" sauces on the warm, fresh sandwich bun.

    The chocolate chip cookie was a painful reminder of grade school, but everything barbecued was fabulous.

    $2.00 PBR is a nice beverage option .

  • Jaime H.

    Whoo hoo!! Combined the scout mob taco deal and the 4square cookie deal for a full-on savor/flavor dinner

    Try the french fries from our 100 Best list: It’s the fries that stick with us: skin on, hand cut, deep brown, liberally salted and pretty much perfect.

    Be sure to get your free cookie on your first check in. Pastrami is excellent.

    Excellent chicken. Good prices. Three types of sauces you can dispense on your own.

  • jeffery s.

    Don't judge the place by there cookie. Pulled pork was pretty good. Sauces are a step away from the usual flavors. Try them out!

    jeffery smith · September 15, 2011
  • Jonathan E.

    The best rib joint thus far. My eyes are always bigger than my stomach when I dine here. It's just walking distance from Kuma's Corner. If you can't wait an hour and a half for a burger . . . .

    Jonathan Eckert · September 13, 2011
  • Martin K.

    Don't underestimate the fries.

    Everything is amazing. I especially like the mac-n-cheese, the St. Louis ribs, and the beef brisket.
