My guilty pleasure

This place is too close to my house. I spoil myself with a smoked chicken or even some brisket whenever I can.

Great place to stop and get a sandwich. This is a quick stop basic type of take-out place. They have a few stools at a counter and some picnic tables outside. Owner does the cooking and she is very friendly. Their BBQ is good. Priced mid-range. Basic,good fare

We were passing by this spot on the way to the Berkshires. It is a small shack that serves tasty BBQ, burgers, steak sandwiches and pizza. A large pulled pork sandwich on a 9" toasted hoagie roll for $8.33 is large enough for two people. Large platter of fries was $2.99. Indoor seating on stools by window counter and outdoor... More

This 1 room eatery does not offer much for ambience however the BBQ beef brisket on a bun was outstanding and very filling. The kitchen was right near you and the owner ran the show. She was very friendly and made you feel right at home. Can't wait to get back some day to try the ribs.

The pulled pork sandwich was super yummy. The brisket wasn't as outstanding but was still quite tasty. We were disappointed that Mep's was all out of beans as we'd heard they are good. The cornbread wasn't the best we've had, as it was a bit cake-y, but it was decent. We really liked the proprietor and would definitely go back.

This is hug-a-stranger good eatin'. Nice meaty slab of 6 ribs is more than enough for supper, but you eat them all anyway because it's so good! Not an ounce of fat, flavor all the way through, with a side of sauce you will lick the plate and the bones to get the last of. I was hard put to... More

Need I say more? The food is out of this world. Love this place, good portions and a wonderful menu. The place is usally busy, so plan on spending a little time. There is also an Amish store next to the place that is also a great stop. Everyone is so friendly
