Mindy M.Loveland, Ohio

"The ribs were very meat,y and the smoke was perfect. They were very tender, and the sauces they had were good."

Steve C.Saint Marys, WV

"I'm glad I hunted down this gem of a spot. I certainly see this as a 'must visit' anytime I'm in town. Owner Jim is very friendly and puts together a wonderful spread."

Tim H.Naperville, IL

"This place never disappoints! The whole chicken is what I get, and it comes with all the sides you could eat! Can't beat the price either. Best BBQ around in Cincy!"

Jenny B.Cincinnati, OH

"The ribs have SO much meat attached to them and the meat is soft, lean, and just slides off the bone. You can tell by the red smoke ring around the rib meat that they were properly smoked and there was a distinct smokey flavor."

Alyssa K.Cincinnati, OH
