Always in search for good Brisket.... this wasn't it. Brisket sandwich was dry and not a lot of meat on it, or much flavor. Good BBQ does not require sauce... had to douse this one. Was in town for business and drug co-workers here for...More

This place is really good. The atmosphere is chill and they even have a ton of board games for the kids to play when waiting for their food. While the kids play, the parents can enjoy an adult beverage and watch a sport channel. And...More

Good food, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Since I am not a sports fan, I prefer to go when there are no major sporting events as it can get loud and a bit rowdy.

Everyone knows Kaminski's has great ribs but I recommend that you try their pulled pork sandwich. Comes with an amazing Barbeque sauce and choice of sides.
