Ribs were mushy. Pulled pork was flavorless. Turkey was just so so. The restaurant was crowded but just wasn't good or great BBQ.

The food is so good when you leave your already planning your next trip to go back. The bbq sauce is delicious and the potatoe salad is wonderful. Baked beans are also very good.
