If you aren't into BBQ their cheeseburgers are the best and their french fries are the best on the island....hand-cut! Great beer to go with it!

If you like BBQ or even think you may like BBQ, go here. It has been written up in several magazines and deserves all the press. If you skip this place, you are only cheating yourself.

On the recommendation of friends, I grabbed a “weekday worker” combo (pulled pork sandwich, fries and a drink for $7) to go and loved it! The pork was amazing and the fries were just the right amount of salty.

The best barbeque on the island! Everything they serve is delicious. The problem is getting in! Everyone eats there.

I had the most wonderful veggie burger at this restaurant. The atmosphere was small and quaint but not uncomfortable. I would return again.

Beef brisket, Turkey. And, of course, the stew. Waitstaff is exceptional! Just like the food. But if you come during the rush be prepared to wait in line because the secret is out.
