We stopped in for the Peach Cobbler. Much to our surprise they served Bar-B-Que with it! As it turned out the Bar-B-Que was also a grand-slam home run! The service personnel made it a triple-double experience.

The food was good, not as good as I was hoping. The service at the counter and in the restaurant was lacking. Will try other BBQ options next time.

I'm a great fan of BBQ and I found my lunch here to be quite good. The Senior Plate was a full meal with a choice of two sides, meat, bread and a drink. All for about $11.
