When stopping for lunch here, I must admit, I was skeptical based on the appearance of the place. Talk about the mistake of judging a book by its cover.

It's was a very delicious small BBQ restaurant. Unfortunately we couldn't order certain items because they were all sold out. Never the less I would recommend it if you need a BBQ fix

This was some of the best BBQ I've ever had. It doesn't look like much when it comes out in the plate, but it sure does taste good!
