Right at the northland of the main street, good service, great food at reasonable prices. Cash only. Indoor and outdoor seating. Ribs and tri-tip are specialties. Meat slow cooked and tender.

We came based on other trip advisor reviews and can happily confirm the food is great! Casual walk up style ordering, quick but still fresh food and lots of it. Be forewarned this place accepts cash only in payment.
