We had several different meats. All were dry. Sides were so small. A spoonful is about all they give. Place needed a good cleaning. Yuck. Don’t waste your time or money. Servers weren’t too friendly either.

So good! Regional BBQ with many different sauces to sample. It was an easy exit off route 40. I think that I could live on BBQ.
