Terrible place to eat,,they drown everything in BBQ sauce..The food doesn't taste like it's barbecued: I don't know why they even call it that. You need to try harder Jake, Sorry.

We've been trying to get into this restaurant for years, with no success. Every Spring and Fall we try and they're either not yet open for the season or left early due to lack of business. Glad that they're able to make a living with those hours!

Local made variety of BBQ flavors meat pulled dishes. Ala carte sides of foods and deserts. You pay for what you get vs pay and eat your $'s worth.

Used to love this place for BBQ and funnel cake after browsing THE OUTHOUSE. However, the last time we went I felt sick afterwards.

The barbeque was loaded with over sugared BBQ sauce and the portions were very small. The service left a lot to be desired, They did not seem to very customer oriented. Would definitely stay away from this place.

Didn't like this indoor outdoor eatery nearby my favorite Out House novelty store. Though they are looking to make ribs their center of attraction, other foods are available.

We were there during the week and the place was closed. The menu looked good but we didn't have the opportunity to try the food.

Really disappointed after hearing from my friends about the food. Seating was good-country style but waited much too long for the preparation. The day we visited, we waited over 40 minutes for barbeque sandwich which was too fatty, cole slaw was warm and way overpriced. We will give it a try one more time hoping it was an off-day for...
