Thought the food was pretty good - not great, but watching the person cut up the meat in back of the counter was something. We were there at lunch time and while the line as a little long it moved very quickly. We even bought...More

This is pretty good BBQ and a neat destination spot. The wait is always very long but the service is good.

This is a great BBQ resturant! Always a long line, but moves quickly. Order counter style and seating is at long tables. All the BBQ is great! Samples are provided on request. I am normally a pulled pork fan, but the smoked turkey is incredible...More
