I stop here once a week during summer/fall. Pulled pork platter is a great choice. Good portions, great taste, friendly staff.

One of the best places to eat. You must try Highlander fries. They are awesome. Of course the bbq is great as well. But the fries are my favorite. Owners are wonderful people. Homemade desserts as well. Then top off with ice cream cone
