Great find

On 28 between Inlet and Old Forge sits a little non discript place. You would drive right past it if there weren't folks sending in reviews. Being from the south we are picky about our BBQ. We were astonished to find such great tastes in NY. You have to try the Big Daddy sandwich. It's a grilled... read more

My husband and I had a delicious meal called the Big Daddy, which was Texas toast grilled cheese with BBQ pulled pork and mac 'n cheese on the sandwich. This also came with a side. It was a lot of food, so I would recommend sharing instead of getting two orders, but it was incredible. The service was great and... More

Excellent barbeque restaurant just north of Old Forge. Food quality is outstanding. Portions are generous and have never left here hungry. Restaurant and bar area is small...less than 10 tables. During summer months there is a nice large outdoor dining area out back.

This restaurant is spotlessly clean with a bright dining room. The menu has plenty of choices without going overboard. Service is fast and friendly. I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend!!

They only serve one burger and it was fantastic. 1/2 # burger with brisket and pulled pork topped with fried onion crunchies. Highly recommend!

We stopped in last night on our way home from Big Moose. The server commented that the weekend had been as busy as Fourth of July and so they had run out of a few items. No big deal, the menu is extensive enough to cover. We had pulled pork (very good) and I had brisket. The brisket was undersmoked... More

Stopped here looking for a good meal and value (tired of the big ticket restaurants in Old Forge) .. Just north of town is this great place.. Who knew? Had brisket, pulled pork and ribs .. All good especially the pork which had a good consistency (not the often encountered, over cooked, unrecognizable mass of orange reddish mush) and sauce... More

We have been regular customers since they have opened. Always leave a generous tip. Tonight, we went to dinner and ordered the usual fare. Unfortunately, the ribs were not up to par - very tough. But that was not the biggest problem with our meal. We asked the waitress about the beer on draught...she described the beers and recommended a... More
