This little gem is amazing. Their house made bbq is absolutely the best in town. Highly recommend the mild bbq sauce and their Dr. Pepper bbq. Pulled pork is nice and juicy, and the slaw is great too. Be sure to check this place out...More

I forget to stop at this place! The bun was large and very good! The pork portion was very generous. I liked the sauce, and I appreciatted it being served in a little container, so I could use as much as I wanted.
