Haven't been here in while....its really become quite an event center! I'd have to give the atmosphere 5 stars. Now on to the BBQ...had the brisket, ribs, turkey & sausage. Have to give the top dibs to the turkey. Great smoke flavor without being overwhelming. Moist. Delicious. Brisket pretty good but not quite flavorful enough. Moist. Ribs were quite good as well! Sausage had a good flavor but a little too fatty for me. Beans were very good. Potato salad was good too. Cole slaw is vinegar based. Not my fav. Tried both blackberry and peach cobbler with ice cream. Delicious, but I would have liked it a little sweeter. Rest of my family thought they were great. All in all, 3.5 stars.

Moist brisket, but not fatty. Great favor, but not too intense. Adequate sauce, although no sauce needed on brisket. Sauce did not cover up flavor of meat when used. Good sides, but the brisket stole the show. Interesting peach cobbler, and tasted better than it looked (was packaged). Would highly recommend.

Chicken, sausage and brisket were good. Beef rib was ok. Had a side of potato salad and it was great! Was worth the visit and will return. Very nice people there as well.

Came here 1st time. Warning. If you do not like an over abundance of smoke flavor, this is not your place. With that said, Lean brisket had some chew but pulled easy. I wish top fat had rendered as you paying for fat that's just going to be removed. Sting smoke flavor but surprisingly only 1/4" of smoke ring. Good pepper spice as well. Can eat without BBQ sauce but sauce is good enough to use sparingly. The moist is something else. Melt in mouth goodness. Again some fat should have been more rendered. They cut it at an angle so it pulls apart easy. No need for BBQ sauce but BBQ sauce gives it an extra level of spice. I can still feel it giving me a slow burn in my mouth or is that just all the smoke I inhaled while standing in line. I would say moist 4.5 out 5 and lean a 4 out of 5. I got beef rib but I was too full. These are the brontosaurus ribs and costs $22/lb. will see if worth it. Again this place not cheap @$20/lb. I've had great stuff at $15/lb or less. It's up to you to see if worth extra $5-8/lb better than Kirby's.

Moist brisket okay but dry. Sauce good. 2.75 out 5. Sides were huge dissapointment. Cole slaw was soggy and corn on cob had been steaming for way too long.
