Unique setting

The barbeque was very good. Sides were good also. The atmosphere is western with a smokey smell - from the barbeque. It is located under another business just across the street from the Parry Lodge. When you are ready to leave after eating excellent barbeque, you can walk out into a small park... read more

Our experience was just that an experience. The food was just so-so, not hot but not cold. A little on the pricey side for what you got. Our waitress was cute but not real attentive. We watched the wait staff horsing around and playing on their phones. Guess they had noting better to do. We did try some local beer... More

If we were going to rate our waiter we would've given him a 4 or 5, but sadly we have to rate the whole experience. It does have fun decor but that's about the only plus. The food was just okay and the worst part was the manager/owner (at least that is who he appeared to be) apparently doesn't know... More

As a stop along the way in your travels I can recommend this place but so long as your expectations are not high - good for fast, basic food and some rest.

It was a fun place to eat, food was good and reasonable priced. Another plus - BAR with adult beverages always a plus.

Centrally located, choice of patio or indoor dining. Some live music at the bar. Food was fine, nothing memorable, and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and efficient.

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
