The food is delicious. I loved the hush puppies and the mac and cheese. Staff are friendly and inviting. I can't wait to come back.

I can't describe happiness but here is a picture of it. I have not had better YET and this was out of this world! The ladies and gents working here were very sweet and I highly recommend this gem of an establishment!

Delicious food, amazingly friendly owner and staff! Our group sampled eachother's food so we had a well rounded experience of the food. Catfish was the best I have ever had! The brisket, turkey and chicken and sides were all great! We will definitely be coming back next time we're in town.

Southern style BBQ in graffiti-walled structure. The menu is written in chalk. We waited in line for quite awhile, and for me the brisket plate I got in the end was disappointing. About a third of the meat was just fat. The yams were tasty, although smothered in a somewhat watery sweet sauce. The BBQ beans were also drowning in sauce. I used the three hush puppies that came with the meal to rescue some of the beans. The best part about this restaurant is the graffiti that covers almost all walls. Fascinating. My lunch partner had the pulled pork sandwich, and she said it she would come back for it, as long as it has those BBQ beans on top.

Service was amazing! Told them it was our first time here and they were very kind and offered recommendations! Mac and cheese was not super amazing, but it was so stringy and cheesy I would consider getting again and just add ketchup or salt. Also everything here I would say is a fair price. Definitely recommend the hush puppies! By far my favorite ones I've ever had!

I ordered just about every meat they had available the day that I went, which amounted to about 3 meal orders if I recall. The pulled pork was the best thing I had, but I would still only call it average or slightly above average. Overall I was not impressed based on the reviews that I read prior to going here. The staff was very friendly however and even went to the back to see if they had brisket when I asked for it despite them not having it officially out for serving. If it wasn't for the staff being as good as they are I would likely rate this place lower, but clearly based on the reviews it may simply not be my kind of BBQ.

The Turkey BBQ taste really good; the venue has a good selection of sides. This visit, mac & cheese and cabbage wad the selection and they both tasted really, really good - the food was seasoned pretty - neither more or less, it was just right! Thank you Backyard BBQ Pit.

Delicious food!! The cook could tell we were new and came out and gave us samples. Super friendly staff, such a fun place to eat and seriously, everything is fantastic. A local gem.

The food was excellent. We came there at lunchtime, and the line wrapped around the restaurant, but their cafeteria-style serving got everyone their food in a hurry. Would have given 5 stars if the place was cleaner.
