This place is sooooo good. My daughter doesn't really like to eat BBQ and she really likes this place. Service so good and they are super nice. Will definitely come next tie in town. The garlic potatoes are awesome.

Off the beaten path, delicious little mom and pop shop. Very nice family runs the restaurant, very hospitable, cute decor. Chopped beef sandwiches we good, tender and falling apart. The ribs were falling apart, mouth watering. Overall great experience.

We needed to have BBQ for an important event at our Church. We found this place and went for a "taste test" without letting anyone know why we were there. It was wonderful! We ordered enough brisket and sausage for our event that same day....More

Had lunch here - all four of us had the special which was sausage and brisket with beans and lettuce. The brisket was the best! Next time, I’d just eat that!! Very casual, no beer, but good teas and lemonade!
