This place always serves tasty BBQ and a good variety of meats. Calvin made his own sauce and passed it onto his family when he passed away. The sauce has 4 levels of heat, I always take the mild one but is delicious! Rustic setting, makes you feel like your in a barn but it is clean and service is... More

Interesting place to walk around before and after you have eaten, check out the photo's on the walls and various outside settings for photo's - food good and you get value for your money.

Food was underwhelming - service as well. We had baby ribs and pulled pork. Food was served in less than five minutes, All the meat on the plates was cold. When we complained, they took our plates and reheated them - including the potato salad, which then was warm potato salad. Two meals were at least served on new plates.... More

The decor was casual western, with lots of photos from the many movies shot in the region over the years. The staff were friendly, the food good, and the prices reasonable. One night there was even live entertainment.

This place has pretty good BBQ in a pleasant setting, and the guy who sings country western live is much better than most. We had the ribs and pulled pork and it was good. The atmosphere is rustic and very casual, but it fits the town and the area. The service was OK. He looked like a high school kid... More

Food was just ok. BBQ to much sauce not enough flavor. One of the coolest places I have been. It is worth it for the atmosphere.

We have come here for a while and everything has always been good,This time the beans tasted rancid, I saw dead flies in the salad and the meat was cold and tasted so bad we couldn't eat it. I asked one of the employees what was going on and the reply was "well the owner has no clue about how... More

Stay away - food had no taste and the service was terrible. They could care less. We were told the locals weren't welcome here but tourists are- that should have been our warning besides everything listed on Trip advisor! The BBQ smelled delicious so we thought we'd take a chance...it was a mistake. Probably the WORST meal on our entire... More

Decorated courtyard with old west scenes like a movie set. Food was plentiful and tasted very good. Prices very fair. Lovely waitress. Definitely would return.

Our tour guide warned us not to go to this place, but we did not listen. Ordered the burger, chicken wrap and pulled pork sandwich. Burger is a frozen patty and worse than a fast food burger, Chicken wrap had one chicken strip cut up in it, more like a lettuce wrap. Pulled pork tasted like the stuff you get... More
