Location off the beaten path. Atmosphere average yes clean. Service is slow. Better than having a microwave meal. Meal was served hot. The flavor I didn’t enjoy. The smoke flavor was not tasty. BBQ sauce had a slight bite but was not good.

I’m born and Texas bred. I know my bbq. THIS PLACE IS AWESOME! The brisket is oh so delicious. The pulled turkey is a very close second. Absolutely worth finding! You will NOT be disappointed.

Great beef brisket sandwich and sweet potato fries. Detour off highway worth the extra distance. Will come back.

First time we ever stopped here. The food was great, I had the Carolina Pulled Pork Bbq Sandwich and fries. I would definitely recommend this place.
