This is a roomy restaurant with a nice relaxed atmosphere. A good place to get together with friends for food and beverages. The BBQ is fairly good but not the best we ever had. In particular, the ribs did not have a lot of meat...More

We have had our fair share of BBQ over the years and this place delivers. We shared the platter which has a little bit of everything. It was all good and more than enough food for four people. Out of town but worth the drive.

A little far out of town but worth the drive. Food was good and served very quick. There is a stage for entertainment, though I have yet to make it back for that. Plan to stop when I get to Hudson again

We had eaten at this bbq several times and enjoyed the food. So...we took some in-laws there. Bad idea. We had a rack of ribs, pulled pork and sides. The ribs were pink, tough and almost inedible. They were cooked too hot and too fast....More
