    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.

    The pulled pork sandwich is incredible. Delicious bun and fresh fries. Good sauces too.

    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.

    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.

    $2.00 PBR is a nice beverage option .

    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

    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!

    Awesome place to bring child!! They are fast and so kind!!! Food is good, not quite Smoque or Fat Willies, but not as annoying either.

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

    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 . . . .
