Had 3 meat combo plate, chose ribs, brisket & chicken. Tender meat, pretty good sauce. Comes with 2 sides and a dinner roll with butter. I chose mac n cheese - very good, thick & "cheesy" -plus cold slaw, very good too, with just enough sweetness for my liking.

We had a party of five for dinner. The restaurant was not very busy. The waiter took our order and the food was delivered after a wait. The food was really good - with high marks given to the bar b que and the salad with blue cheese. The waiter seemed very busy doing everything except checking on his customers.... More
