Mediocre food

My wife and I each had the Lunch Chopped Brisquet which I am sure was just a fatty pork roast. Not very good and very fatty. Disappointed. The bake potatoe was very good.

This was exceptional barbecue. The meat had great color from the smoke as well as great flavor. I had the brisket. It was very tender. We were in a group of 10. Everyone loved their food. I wish that I could remember our server's name because she was great. She had lots of personality and was attentive.

Good smoked meat. Good size menu. Lots of beers to choose from. Phenomenal salad bar! Vegetarians would not starve on just the salad bar alone.

Second bad experience on this trip in asking the locals. Could have stopped at the salad bar; well stocked and decent dressings. My husband's ribs were, just ok, didn't finish. Both my pulled pork and BBQ beans felt like leftovers from the week before..honestly horrible..I ate 2-3 bites, then stuck to my fries, which turned out to be the best... More

We stopped here on our way through Wyoming. We ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the wings. Both were good. We really enjoyed the full salad bar. Nice, friendly service without a long wait.

It may look like a dump from the outside but don't be scared. This is a 1st class BBQ joint. I expected brisket and ribs but was wowed when I turned to the back of the menu to find gator, buffalo, ostrich, python, & kangaroo! It was a tough decision but I went w the kangaroo. It was basically grilled... More
