Anniversary visit. Brisket, chopped pork and BBQ sauce to take home. Great night out. Wait staff was friendly and efficient even though they were very busy. We did not feel neglected. A family favorite for 30 years.

Blue Cheese Wedge was fresh lettuce with bacon and excellent. Smoked chopped was OK, but too saucy. Smoked turkey and chicken were good. Beans and slaw were good. Service was good.

The BBQ was very good, meal was hot and fresh. Thought the beans were the best part of the meal, and the onion chips are definitely worth a try. Service was excellent.
