Here is the best kept secret. I have eaten here many times but rarely eat inside. Instead in good weather I prefer to eat outside. They have outdoor seating in 3 locations on the property. Just go to the takeout window and order what you want and carry it to your table of choice. It is much quieter outside. The... More

Their Chicken BBQ is famous (it is rumored that they borrowed their recipe from Cornell U. Diverse menu. Separate building for group meetings and special events. Their operation has expanded considerably under the succeeding generation of the family.

My husband had the chicken & pulled pork combo and I had the BBQ Pork Rib dinner. It was fantastic! We were so full when we left! The service was very friendly! I would highly recommend this restaurant! Prices were very reasonable for the amount of food you received!

I'm gonna start by saying, this place is far from fancy, it looks like you've walked into a saloon in the West. The second thing is skip the bread they serve, unless you are using it to soak up all that sauce and make yourself a little sandwich. Now on to the good stuff. The chicken is so juicy and... More

Of course the food is great and reasonably priced. However, the line for table seating can be very long. Our favorite tip is to sit at the counter as there are usually seats available there. The menu is the same and two people (or even four) it sure beats the wait.

My boyfriend is from East Meredith, New York. This was my first visit to the area. He couldn't wait to take me here. The food was unbelievable! We ate at 4 pm on a Friday night, just before the supper rush. We received fast and friendly service. They sell their BBQ sauce and rubs in store and online. This is... More

We got whole chickens and a bunch of sides to go. The chicken was awesome! The sides were all really good too, but the chicken is really memorable. Perfectly barbecued, nicely seasoned and still hot when we got it home. The whole crowd really enjoyed this meal.

Had takeout, so can't comment on dine-in, but chicken was tasty. Lots of sides, and easy to pickup for a long day in the Catskills.
