Ordered 1 pound of brisket and a sausage ring. This is the best damn barbeque I've ever had. It's so good, that I'll gladly drive the 50 minutes from my house to eat there again. Excellent service, and excellent food!!

The Brisket was soooo tender and moist. Definitely worth the money. The staff were helpful. Ate here a few times while we were there. Looking forward to coming back.

The meat falls off the rib bone when you take a bite. The sausage has a great flavor and the sliced beef is tender, moist and great.

Don't let the outside of this place turn you away, it looks rough, and when you first walk in it seems very old school, but get to the food, and you'll know why folks keep coming back. Mouthwatering does not even begin to describe the...More
