The food was good. We had brisket plate and pulled BBQ. Very tasty. However, the restaurant is in the back of the convenience store with tables. But a very busy place to eat lots of convenience store foot traffic. There are tables outside but a little chilly that day.

The pizza was great and didn't take very long for them to cook. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Worst Bar B Q ever, No smoke indicating a real smokehouse anywhere to be found. Pulled pork sandwich tasted like something you would buy in a vending machine at a bus station years ago. Center of the sandwich was cold. Will not be back.. Save your Bar B Q dollars for somewhere other than here.

Well when we go in its a convenience store, we had to ask where the restaurant was located which was towards the back of the convenience store. We... More

Was over charged for a combo meal and they were unable to refund the amount that I was over charged. Had to wait 35 minutes for three sandwich combos.
