We were driving the Great River Road and needed a lunch stop. We kept saying "the next town" but the towns were small and very depressed with few open businesses. When we drove into Wickliffe and saw lots of cars and trucks parked at a little roadside place we stopped. You order at a window and get to-go or sit out at one of two tables. A woman in front of me asked if I'd been there before. Then she told me she and her husband drive a couple hours just to get the BBQ. The woman that took our order was very friendly. We had a pork sandwich and a turkey breast sandwich. Most people came to get takeout. The staff knew everyone. Our sandwiches were so good we got ribs to-go.
This place should be on Diners, Drive In's and Dives!
The BBQ here is EXCELLENT!!!
We were passing through, saw it, & stopped to try it.
The people were so polite, friendly, & professional!!!
We had BBQ pork sandwiches.
The pork was tender, juicy, & flavorful.
I've experienced good BBQ & bad BBQ, the BBQ here is delicious!!!!!
Fresh made, fresh smoked BBQ. Definitely worth the stop along the road. Recommend the slaw pulled pork sandwich.
I think this BBQ is just a notch above average. I ate the pulled pork butt. It's very moist. There's an uneven flavor I experienced when eating this dish. I ate a few bites before a flavor explosion happened. Once you get a mouthful of that flavor though, OMG. I'm no expert on how to make pulled pork, but somehow in the process there's a need for a little more attention to detail. I can say that those small bites that seem unseasoned are very tasty when you add their unique BBQ sauce. It's a bit tangy like they've added a hot sauce to it. I enjoyed the pork more though once I knew which bites needed the sauce & which ones were power packed with flavor alone.
The coleslaw was middle of the road. I liked it enough to eat all of it. I'm just saying that it's not a reason to do backflips. It has a very simple and clean slaw flavor that you might have grown up with. It's crisp and fresh too. I didn't think it was some throw together from yesterday.
My favorite was the potato salad. Now this stuff may or may not be an in house recipe because I have tasted one similar to this somewhere else, but I loved this part of my meal. The potato salad has that thick rich flavor and a nice clean lingering flavor that stays with you for a moment as if to tease you saying; you know you want more!
There's only outdoor seating so if you can't handle a fly or ten then you can sit in your climate controlled vehicle or take it home. I sat out on the patio with my dog and we both worked at keeping the flys away. There's a fan blowing on the patio to keep you cool in this summer heat and a view of nice green trees just across the street.
I'd say give it a try. Everyone has there own taste buds and opinions. Write it down and let other people know this family business is here.
You talk about gooood food and awesome service and its truck friendly. So stop in and grab some of the best bbq around
