This restaurant was recommended to us and we are very glad it was! The ribs were very good as was all the BBQ that we tried. Side dishes were all good as well. Self serve drinks (except alcohol) which was nice. So happy to see...More

They have 3 tvs at the bar and on a Saturday night it was easy for our group of 3 to sit down right away and watch the college football game with not waiting. Will be back again.
