If bbq is what you're looking for in Salem...look no further. Taste is out of this world and the meat quality is the best. Sausage is equally as good as well as all the side dishes! And on top of all this, they are sponsors of the Oregon Club of the Willamette Valley and the do all their tailgates and... More

Our table ordered brisket sandwiches, pulled pork and pulled chicken with roasted veggies, hush puppies and sweet potato fries. Each entre provided plenty of food for each diner. They offer a selection of house BBQ sauces so every palate... More

A lot of really good food at a really reasonable price, you won't leave hungry. If you aren't looking for a nice sit down meal with a waitress, just great food, this is the place to go!

First time eating here. Food was awesome and service was pretty quick considering the amount of people in our party. I love the spicy BBQ sauce. Will be coming back for sure.

The food was good. We were really hungry so it was nice to be able to enjoy some good food. It is a little expensive for what you get but I have seen worse. The restaurant is cramped and doesn't provide enough seating for the number of customers they have. All of the food is made fresh so it was... More

Loved the pulled pork and brisket. Huge sandwiches with lots of flavor. Live music even at lunch. You order at the counter and food came up quickly. Good beer selection with lots of varieties on tap.
