Love this place! We drove an hour and a half each way just to eat here, that's how awesome it is. The meat is great, and my wife is vegetarian and loves their smoked tofu. BTW, their spicy green beans are quite possibly the best green beans I've ever had. Don't forget to finish the meal off with their homemade cobbler, which is to die for. Also, their service is always amazing!

I honestly cant say enough great things about this place. Brian runs a tight ship and pays attention to detail and you can tell that him and his staff genuinely care about what they do and take great pride in their work. There is seriously no reason to go to any other BBQ place around. Every single item on the plate blew my mind with the perfect combination of flavors. Valerie did an amazing job taking care of us and has the type of joyful, infectious personality that makes you cant wait to come back again. Hands down 10 outta 10 would recommend and will definitely be making this place be a regular spot.

First time visitor. The food, service, and atmosphere were outstanding! Add in a slow, sunny Saturday in downtown Fort Mill... Perfect. I loved the homemade sauces, but the pulled pork didn't need any additions... Mouth-watering. I was also impressed by the hospitality.... Memorable. I look forward to returning when I'm in the area!

At first our drinks and food were terrible! My mojito was straight lime. Our brisket and pork were ice cold and dry. I had the twice baked jalapenos the sauce inside them was delicious but the peppers were almost uncooked. Bryan the manager and our server were amazing! Very understanding and attentive! They fixed all of the problems very promptly. We got hot food and fresh drinks in a quick manner! We will definitely be going back to give them another go!

Every item we ordered was top notch. Valerie was by far, the best server we have ever had, in any restaurant. She was attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and she made us feel like we were home. Will definitely be back.
