This is one-of-a-kind in the smokehouse/barbecue circle. Huge portions, homemade rolls, ribs, chicken, brisket...all mouthwatering! Been there a zillion times never once been disappointed! Service is great, lots of wait staff. Excellent choice and prices are very reasonable!

We were a party of 11 people and were seated quickly. The food was very good, as were the beverages. The waitress was very pleasant and the food was served promptly.

The best bar-b-que on the peninsula!! Smoked pulled pork bar-b-que, smoked on site daily!! Great cole slaw and bar-b-que baked beans. 6 of their own sauces means they have a bar-b-que sauce for every taste. 😃

The restaurant is easy to get to since it is located on Route 17 a short distance north of the I64 / Rte 17 interchange.

Wonderful chicken strips. Their fries and mash potatoes are out of this world. And their margaritas are off the hook. Great place for lunch and dinne . Go early for they always have a long line to get in.
