Consistently good. We always get the pulled pork and if I want to be really bad the corn nuggets. The pups are great too. Don't expect him to always be open though. He may be serving at a local event.

Great place. Small family place that has great food. The ribs were great. Had Mac and cheese and it was home made. Fries were crunchy and good. Off the beaten path but worth the drive
