My first and only experience was the night of 2016's Primary Election. Nice place. Cold beer. Enjoyed a mound of fried onion rings. Not much parking in front.

If you like smoked food you are in for a treat. Everything here is smoked. The meat loaf is especially good as is the brisket. Give it a try and if you like live music, stop by on Friday and Saturday nights.

This was the first time I had visited the restaurant. The online menu looked good and the restaurant itself had an inviting rustic atmosphere, being housed in the old Coca-Cola building. The food, however, was a let down. The AYCE buffet was not appetizing at...More

I had smoked peanut butter and jelly wings. I know it sounds strange but they are great. I got sample wing before my order and I was hooked.
