We decided to go here from all the great reviews. The BBQ meat taste was fine but was cold. The sides everyone in our party had were disgusting. Definitely not the caliber of BBQ we are use to!

BBQ is not usually my first choice for lunch although this place is awesome. Pulled pork sandwich with mac and cheese.

Every meat I tasted was amazing. My favorite being the brisket and jalapeno & cheese sausage. I love the vinegar style sauce, soooo yummy. The Mac and cheese that I was told "was all the rage" was bland with mushy noodles.... can't win them all,lol.

Stopped for lunch on our way to salt lake. Amazing food. When you order they remove large cuts of meat from heaters and carve fresh right in front of you. Great sauce collection as well. I've eaten BBQ in all different parts of the country...More
