I eat lunch here about once a week. Sliced brisket and pork are both great. Recommend mixed sauce on the side. Sides can be uneven but usually the creamy coleslaw and ranch beans are good Atmosphere is minimal-designed for quick lunches during the work day. Not a place to linger.

Food is sub-par at best. Honestly, my son makes better smoked meats. sides are ok, but nothing special. Sauce tastes like ketchup with little added to it. Prices aren't too bad, but for the quality you get, go to the grocery store deli instead.

A group of us went there for lunch recently. They have a great lunch special that includes a BBQ sandwich with your choice of meat and 2 sides for under $10. I had the brisket which was moist and tender and had a nice smoke flavor. The BBQ beans and vinegar coleslaw rounded out my lunch. I actually couldn't eat... More

After trying this for the first time with some friends I have been back at least a dozen times in the last 2 months. Literally everything is good here. All of the meats have a good smokey flavor. They also have the best sides, making it hard to choose just 2.

My husband and I were traveling around Illinois visiting family and we needed lunch. We did the search with the GPS for where we were and with my food allergies (soy, dairy, sesame and more) I avoid the fast food places because I already found out they can't avoid the problems, so we picked this place. It was 1:45 p.m.... More

Nothing fancy, but really good smoked anything. Good sandwiches or plate lunch/dinner. Beats the pants off any chain restaurant. They also offer catering which turned out well for a club I belong to.

Just driving by you can smell how hard the smokers are working to make that delicious bbq meat. Food is best around for authentic BBQ. I go with the brisket (sliced right in front of you) with cole slaw vinagrette and baked beans for sides. Mac and cheese is a hit with my daughter. Cafeteria style eating adds to the... More
