Really good BBQ

Small place but great food! My wife had the special "Mayan Tacos" and she loved them. I had sausage and it tasted fantastic also. This was the best meal we had during our visit to Eureka Springs. Cold beer and great food. Hard to beat!

All of the barbeque is really good and well prepared. I have tasted all of the selections and cannot say one is better than the other.It just depends on you preference. But the food is good and the beer is cold.

The brisket was tasteless. Excellent service but it didn't begin to make up for the bad food. I would not recommend this to anyone.

The service was quick and the food delicious. We travel a few times a year and always find a BBQ place and this one would be at the top of our list for the best.

Good food. I enjoyed the simple style of the location. Sauce is the key for me and I really liked theirs

We planned a camping trip to Eureka but when we got there it started raining so we had to wait in the car while my husband set up the tent and before we realize it was dark, my son was getting tired and hungry and there was no possible way to cook with the weather like that so we hit... More
