Good bbq

Great bbq! enjoyed the outdoor atmosphere. Had good service and hot bbq for a fair price! Parking lot kind of sucks, but the food makes up for it.

A really fun place to eat. Located on the Jonathan Creek and you can't beat the food, drink and locals.

Let's start with the positive things: Cute restaurant sign, it smells good when you drive by, nice screened in porch overlooking the creek (and back yards of residents), the cherry soda was quenching. The not so great: prices steep for what you receive in return. $10 for a brisket sandwich that was the worst I've had yet. I'm pretty sure... More

First time there. Service fast and friendly. I got the fried corn on the cob, pork and spinach casserole. My husband got the ribs, red potatoes and cole slaw. The pork was ok. Not much taste, the sauces made it better. The corn was good, but it think it needed more seasoning. I really enjoyed the spinach casserole. My husband... More

Really good bbq. Good sauces. Excellent fried corn on cob. We tried pulled chicken bbq and half chicken. BBQ itself is plain and you add the amount and type of sauce that you like.
