Went in with a party of 8 including a mix of adults and kids. Plenty of variety, kids meals, ribs, pork, turkey sandwiches, burnt ends, etc. Everyone left happy! Fruity sauces were unique and we purchased a bottle to take with us. Service was excellent!!

Try the Jon Russel Sandwich! Burnt Ends and Chopped sausage. This is the only thing I've had, but it's probably the only thing I'll ever get because it is fantastic. Also, please try the blueberry habanero bbq sause.

Okay get the blueberry jalapeño sauce from behind the counter. It is the best, but really you need to try the cole slaw. It is fabulous. It is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. So many kinds of veggies. Potato salad is also top notch. Everyone must try.
