  • This was the best food I’ve eaten in Durant. It’s amazing. Atmosphere is fun, decor is simple & a bit rustic, staff is friendly. I went in with a group of people and we where attended to quickly. Staff had every order perfect. The food portions are HUGE so if your a light eater I suggest the kids portion. You will not be disappointed. The smoked turkey was delicious. The brisket amazing and the vegetables were yummy!! Location is easy to find. Parking may be tricky when they are busy but it’s be worth the wait

  • my boyfriend and I came here while we were driving through. Everything was so good, we got a 3 meat plate with Ribs, chopped brisket, and jalapeño cheddar smoked sausage. For our sides we got the spicy fried green beans, and fried okra. The ribs were BOMB, they were probably the best we’ve ever had. They were about an inch thick, and super juicy, we didn’t even feel the need for bbq sauce on them. The sausage and brisket were just as good! The fried spicy green beans were so good!! The ribs were so good we had to get some to go!

  • I really enjoy the food here. My favorite is the chopped brisket sandwich, or smoked chicken with brisket dinner. Their spicy fried green beans are my fave side. Mmm, I'm going again tonight!

  • Got a summer salad with blueberries, pecans, spring greens and smoked chicken which was wonderful! I appreciated having a different and lighter option. Hubs had traditional BBQ which he really enjoyed - he got mashed potatoes as a side which were OK but he raved about the brisket, chicken and beans. My son got a fried chicken sandwich, it was also outstanding. Well fried and seasoned with crispy bacon. He got fried okra as a side and they were tasty, fresh and hot. Definitely will go back next time we visit the kiddo - wish it was in our home town.

  • If I could give it three and a half stars I would. The service is good and the atmosphere is comfortable but the pricing is too high for the size of the ribs that is served. I asked the waiter if there were bigger size ribs, he took my plate and brought me back ribs that were an eighth of an inch bigger. I won't go back. The ribs I was given were the size of a ladies finger, size six...
