All the food was great. The BBQ was tender everything we has was good. The homemade desert I had Pecan pie friend had chocolate pie. The only compliant I would have is the portion size is small..

Good food very good food we had baked potatoes with a variety of fillings I had the ribs very tender the only thing is to an English person slightly put off by the paper plates and plastic cutlery but as our host stated rather a new clean paper plate than a (potential) dirty plates

We were immediately greeted when we walked in, and the service was fast and friendly. However, the food portions - while quite tasty - are small for the price. $7 is not bad in a touristy place for a pulled pork sandwich, but it was quite small, and the side of baked beans was very small.
