Our Bar-B-Q Restaurant Reviews

I promise the food is worth the wait. They have excellent customer service and delicious food. I had the rib tips with Mac and cheese and blackeyed peas. And the sweet potato soufflé was amazing.

So I'm definitely in love with This Is It! it's my new go-to when I want a Southern cooking fix, but I don't feel like cooking. The veggie plate does it for me, it's basically a meal itself, especially the potato salad, do you see that paprika!? I really appreciate that their greens aren't seasoned/cooked with pork. Definitely recommend!

I've been getting Thanksgiving items from This Is It for over 10yrs. The employees are always nice and try to fill the orders as fast as possible. The service I received today at the Panola Rd location was exceptional. They were very nice and organized. I was in and out in 10mins. Thank you so much!
