The smoked meat here is not bad but the side dishes are terrible. Worst beans and potato salad ever. Interesting museum.

The first thing you notice about the smoke house, besides the motorcycles is the smell of fresh BBQ. So you can imagine my disappointment when two minutes after ordering I was given a 12 dollar plate of a few small Snt. Louis Ribs, that were...More
