Don't let the great smell of wood smoke fool you into stepping inside and eating. We've eaten at dozens of BBQ joints all over the US and know how good BBQ should be prepared and taste and this was not our first trip to Harpers Ferry so we were expecting the prices. Our group of four had the pulled chicken with BBQ sauce sandwich, pulled pork sandwich and ribs. The ribs were tough, dry, and flavorless - no rub for flavoring,and had obviously been cooked at least a day before and reheated in the microwave. It was the same with the pulled chicken - no flavoring and the BBQ sauce on top was a horrible off the shelf brand. I expected the sauce to be mixed throughout not put on top. The pulled pork was the same. Side dishes included mac n cheese out of a can, coleslaw out of a can, and fries which were the only good part of the meal. The ice tea was old but soft drinks were mixed well. The service was good. Prices were typical for Harpers Ferry. Spend your money on better food at another establishment such as the Anvil or Secret Six.
