Reviewed this restaurant last year as it was one of the best BBQ restaurants I'd ever been to. We went back and I am glad to say my mind has not changed! Still excellent service, still excellent food at reasonable prices!

Decent BBQ. I had the BBQ pulled chicken and the pulled pork. Also had baked beans and slaw. BBQ chicken was delicious. Not a fan of the pulled pork (lacked flavor). Beans and slaw were good. The BBQ sauces on the table were decent. Overall,...More
