I love this place, super informal with excellent BBQ - the brisket is the best. Saw dust on the floor sets the tone and the smells are great. The kitchen is open to the dinigroom so you can watch your lunch or dinner prepared as...More

Though I live in Kansas City and we know BBQ, this little restaurant has some very good bbq. Their slaw was tasty and their service great. I would definitely go back.

The restaurant is small, for sure. But I think it's definitely worth it. The pulled pork is fire, and the brisket is really amazing. Sauces are all great but swicy and spicy are the definitive way to go in my opinion. You won't be disappointed.

Little spot with BIG Southern BBQ. Unparalleled pulled pork, baked beans and potato salad served with homemade corn muffins. Every forkful was delectable. We enjoyed our meal as a takeout, but the cozy atmosphere was inviting. Highly recommend if you're in Easton.

We are lunch here twice during our stay in Easton. Ribs were amazing - so perfect. The brisket was trendy, the sauces were tangy, and dessert was just the right size. It's a small place and popular, so plan ahead!
