My husband and I stopped for a quick sandwich while out shopping. Good BBQ but I prefer Cracker Boys. There are just a couple of picnic tables for seating. Seems like there is a lot of to go orders.

This is a small BBQ truck that sits off of US 19.....unfortunately the BBQ ribs were very disappointing...they were very tough, stringy and chewy....not the tender, falling off the bone type you would hope for....the sides were just okay....prices were good though - so its too bad the ribs were not very good..... - they need to improve the quality...
