I have gone out of my way a couple of times to eat here. The kabobs fill the stick to the point you can barely hold it. She is very liberal with the bbq sauce where as others only give you alittle and want to charge you if you want more. The prices are reasonable. This is my favorite place... More

This place is a bit hidden, it is behind the... More

Early in the morning, when we pass by, you can smell the BBQ Smoker at work. It smells divine & really makes you hungry. After smelling it a few times, we vowed to stop in here... More
