Stopped by for BBQ dinner last week. I am not a huge BBQ fan but was served an outstanding pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw and beans. I would have gone back but we left town the next morning.

We ordered the special of a pound of wings and a sandwich. The wings were extremely dry, like they had been sitting for hours. The burger was not worth eating. The atmosphere is very rustic. the floor is not level. I would not go back.

We went for a birthday dinner and we were disappointed about the quality of the meat. Had a sampler dish with ribs and chicken. The chicken was dry and the ribs were full of fat. Jalapeno poppers for appetizer were pretty spot-on. Smashed garlic potatoes...More
