Ate here with a group of co-workers as we were in town for business. Burnt end sandwich was good as were the cheesy potatoes. Nice place to grab a decent and quick meal.

A small friendly place with just good made fresh BBQ and sides that make you want to splurge on a double order. Casual atmosphere with a clever theme suited to a retired fireman who knows the right way to use fire! Family working there and...More
