The pulled pork Sandwich was decent and the price was good for sandwich, chips and drink! Get sauce on the ribs, no so good without!

This small BBQ restaurant has been at the same location for many years! I have been going there for 20 yrs. Most of their business is carryout. The sandwiches have gotten smaller & the prices have gone up. However, they recently did lower the prices & now fit the size of the sandwich. The sauce is unique with a tang... More

This is the real deal! It's the best BBQ and it's longevity proves it. It has been in business since 1947. It's casual and is a family owned - operated business. You owe it to yourself to go and enjoy this wonderful experience.

The food was good and the place was definitely a tribute to the past. I enjoy places that don't mask their meat in sauces... good flavor and texture.

Not advertised very much. Food is not as good as it used to be. you might miss the pl ace unless you know where it's located. Just disappointing.
