Okay, if you love BBQ of course you will love this restaurant-but if you love salad, as I do, the house salad dressing is the best salad dressing I have EVER had!

I have been eating here for 30 years. It is probably the best BBQ we have in this area. The wait staff are always exceptional. The food is always wonderful. Eating in this once active Firehouse is an experience not to be missed if you visit our town.

BBQ sauce nothing to brag about, in fact so sweet it was cloying. Service good but slow due to college crowds.

Truth be told, I haven't found BBQ anywhere that I liked better as of yet. We go on a pretty regular basis, and I simply love the way they cook their pork.I am not a big fan of the overly sweet BBQ sauce that seems to be a favorite in this area. But Firehouse doesn't overly sauce their BBQ, and... More
