Really good BBQ, informal walk up, order & seat yourself. The prices are a bit high IMO so we don't eat here frequently. Very good alternative where there are not many choices. Definitely worth stopping in if you're in the area or passing through.

The atmosphere is a big negative--long, hard tables and old reruns on a TV that you can't escape. They close when they run out of food. The food is fantastic.

At 5 pm on a Saturday they were out of most everything. We decided to get the last 2 meat options, pork shoulder and Turkey. Both were cooked excellent, however the flavor was of overwhelming black pepper. Sad to see such quality cooking ruined by...More
