We love this place! The pulled pork sandwich is awesome. The owner makes regular rounds and is most appreciative of your business.

Lefty knows how to do it right. Some of the most mouth watering delicious barbecue you will find anywhere. The sides compliment the meat perfectly. And to top it off, desert is good enough to make you just start there!
