I am a self proclaimed BBQ expert. This is my meal of choice. Highlights include the hot wings (one of the best sauces I've had), pulled pork and fresh cut fries. Beef ribs were a bit tough, but delicious. The 1/2 chicken was tender. Portions are huge, but the bill was not! Family of 4 including 2 sodas was $65... More

Great location - friendly wait staff - prompt service - delicious food. Just found it by accident and would go again. A bit loud (music) - but we weren't there for a quiet conversation - just good food and then off to more sightseeing.

This location was well organized with so many people comming in and out. The waiter was ok but the food was great. The honey wings are a must. The salads were fresh and the fried shrimp was just as good. I would visit again.
