I wasn't impressed.....the baked beans were so spicy I couldn't get passed the 3 bite, the cole slaw was very dry and so was the meat. I was pretty disappointed after hearing good things about this place.

It's not the best BBQ joint in the area but it's good. They know what they're doing. The potato salad is on point.

Very good food. Just one counter to order, then you have to step to the side and receive your meal and pick it up, then you get your drink and go thing. So I you are or were in the service it is right up your ally.
