Always trying to find new restaurants. Have passed by this one thinking it was only catering. Who knew they also have a small restaurant. The brisket sandwich is HUGE and excellent. The corn pudding as a side was the best I have tasted. The chicken...More

Mike reopened Crave Smokehouse serving fantastic smoked meats! The brisket, bbq, and chicken are all fabulous. The sides are great as well. Dont forget the tomato pie, cant be beat! Eat in or take out you cant go wrong.
