McKoy's Smokehouse and Saloon

The food is excellent! It's a little too loud for me, though. I went for lunch, and my coworkers and I could barely hear one another. The prices are not too bad considering that the plates are filled! There are delicious vegetarian selections. I had the veggie wrap and a side of fried squash. It was great!
Great place for comfort food! Went on a Monday night before 6 and the place was busy but not super crowded. Got seated right away and decided to split an order of pulled pork nachos and I had the blacked chicken sandwich with fries (forgot to get mac n cheese). The food came quick and was super good! The chicken sandwich was very good! The fries I got with the sandwich were a little cold, but still not too bad. But the pork nachos were out of this world I think! Not like regular nachos where everything is piled onto a bunch of chips but rather they made individual chips with the pork and cheese on top. Then you can add the sour cream, tomatoes and lettuce to each one! I highly recommend here when a visit to the Queen City is in order! I also want to give credit to my server, I gave her too much money and she returned the extra amount letting me know that I probably didnt mean to do that! I ended up giving her more of a tip!
Unfortunately they require you to give a star to rate the food!!! If negative stars should be an option!!! I ordered the LTD the pork was dry, tough, and flavor less. Completely unbeatable, the ribs had flavor but was still dry and tough to eat. The chicken was eatable but lacked smoke to it as the whole dish did. With that I ordered collard greens that were tough and no pork flavor at all and left you needing something to cover the flavor quickly to keep from spiting it out. The frys were soggy and had no flavor. I would recommend staying away from the food completely!!!
Eating here now and it's pretty good. I had the pulled pork and fried squash. Good food good service and a saloon like atmosphere. I'll be back! 4 stars vs 5 because I thought the food could be a little more seasoned. It also takes a lot for me to give 5 stars.
Maybe the best smoked wings I've ever had. Smoked, grilled, and then tossed in sauce. Have them grilled again for a little extra. Amazing! A meal in themselves. Good barbecue, friendly staff, and a nice patio.
