This place is legit! You smell the BBQ smokehouse scent as you pull into the parking lot, which is how it should be. There can be a long wait, but it is well worth it (and typically never as long a wait as they say)....More

We had a great dinner. The pulled pork was to die for. Best bark on pork!! The Mac and cheese was enough for a family of 5 to share. We got a very large platter that we shared. Lots to choose from. Our youngest got...More

While the food was good, the service was horrible. We waited for an hour for our food and had to hunt down the waitress multiple times for service. On the plus side it is cheap. But I guess you get what you pay for ...

You have to get there early, but it is in a gorgeous location and you will not leave this place hungry. If you like BBQ this is the place. Huge portions, staff very friendly and lots of options for drinks.

Well-regarded local hangout with great bbq at a reasonable price. Only approx 2 miles after you leave the Big Sky mountain (Highway 64). Good for large groups, too.

The food here is actually insane. Especially for the area, the fact you can get a meal for $7 is unheard of in this area. Large, has a bar, live music, all the things. Great place.

Looking for a place to eat after a long day of work. When we pulled up the first thing we all commented on was the great smoke smell. That’s the first sign of a barbecue place. Great menu, all of the traditional items. Some things...More

They don't take reservations. But will accommodate you if they can. I called and was told no reservations. But, they had our table for 10 setup when we arrived. It wasn't very busy because of our early arrival time.
