SURPRISINGLY TASTY WITH GREAT SAUCES

Not too much to look at but the food is very tasty, the service is friendly, my kids love the hot sauce. Strictly take-out in winter , picnic tables in the summer.

I called to see if there was seating for 4 and easy informed that it was picnic tables outside. With a Wind Chill of -10 it ain't happening. With such rave reviews, the need to consider expansion.

Thanks for your review. We are a seasonal restaurant that stays open year round for two reasons..... first to make sure if you have a great BBQ craving, you can satisfy it, and secondly to keep our staff of 20+ employed rather than send them to the unemployment line every winter. Part of our appeal is the authenticity of our... More

Pulled pork sandwich was so tender and flavorful. The portion sizes are large as well. Great value for what you get.

Worst veggie wrap. If you don't have black beans to put in wrap then don't advertise that you do. Horrible! And it wasn't even wrapped. All flat on top and nasty.
