We order a buffet for lunch and was very good, we got brisket, pull pork, smoke chicken breast. Everything was good but pull pork was excellent. If you like meat you are at a good place.

This past Sunday I had brisket at place owned by top chef from season two in Chicago near Wrigley field. These ribs and brisket were a fraction of the price and over twice the flavor. Truly enjoyed the Caribbean baby back ribs and brisket combo....More
