Very good BBQ, but no atmosphere. If you are in the area and want BBQ, plus an interesting menu that also leans heavily on Cajun and Mexican it's a good choice. Prices average for what you get, and comparable to other places serving similar dishes.

Nice place, very good food and service. Appetizers are enough for a meal. So order a couple and share with your fellow diners.

Saw the specials and tried the Mahi-mahi And fish tacos. Fresh, perfectly seasoned, a great choice. The appetizer was the potato skin special which was plentiful. Overall great experience worth the trip.
