I’ve had bbq coast to coast. I consider myself a bit of a pro judge without really being one. This is in the top 10% of places I’ve been. The location was a touch sketchy, having not been to Modesto ever, I’m not sure if...More

I had a brisket sandwich but it was full of sauce that was too sweet. Potato salad was very full of mayo. Muffin was good!

We are so happy we came across this place! Though it doesn't look like much from the outside (with its large smoker parked out front), and the inside isn't much better, (very simple seating, but clean) this place has great BBQ. We ordered the pulled...More

I love bbq so I'm not sure why it took me this long to come here. I ordered the brisket, ribs, Mac n cheese and yams. This brisket is soooooo good. The ribs weren't bad either but the sauce was delicious. I definitely would order...More
