Great BBQ! All the menu items are Great. Their deserts are tops! They have a great week end buffet. Always fresh fruits, a big selection of breakfast items. The red bbq slaw is the best!

Their buffet is amazing! I would have to agree with my dad, the hash brown casserole is better than Cracker Barrel's. They have mac n cheese, corn, green beans, Cole slaw, potato salad, fried chicken, hash brown casserole, rolls, pork and barbecue sauce, and it goes on. For desert they provide cake and pudding. It was all very good and... More

The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is traditional southern American style.

We got this food "to go" as we finished a long day of driving on our trip to our resort stay for the night. We got the brisket and was very disappointed in the quality of the meat. It had to be at least 30% fat!! and the barbecue sauce was fair and the rest of the side dishes were... More

The baked beans were delicious and my wife specifically asked about the green beans ahead of time to ensure they were not just out of a... More
