Westword's Description

There's no grizzled old papa at Big Papa's standing watch over a hickory fire in the parking lot, but rather one giant Southern Pride smoker in the back. This little storefront outfit works fast -- and with barbecue, speed is made possible only by the intelligent application of technology and mass-production methods. The ribs, the brisket, the chicken and the link sausage all get hours of straight hickory smoke -- which infuses the meat with as much magic as any real pit smoker could -- before they're considered done, wrapped, packed away in the coolers, and then served with Papa's great sauces.

    $13 for a pulled pork sandwich that tasted like it was boiled instead of smoked, a drink, and halfway passable macaroni. Great BBQ I wouldn't be too upset about, but this is like someone went to Sams Club one weekend and thought what would I need to set up a BBQ place? I think they steam te meat instead of smoking it. Don't waste your time. Also if anyone knows of a decent BBQ... More >>

    The babyback ribs are pretty darn good combined with the Memphis sauce.

    Maybe I came on am off day but my BBQ was dry and sauce isn't supposed to mask that you dried out the meat...

    They were out of some items according to the gal on the register - even though others told her "no we have some of that". She was closing up 30+ min before close - and was overly rushed and rude.

    Food was good, but 45 min before close they had the food/hot trays all closed up and moved in back.
