About
This is as small restaurant that packs people in. It has a small bar and you usually have to wait for a table. You can leave your number and they will call when a table opens up.The food is unbelievable. It's a place where other restaurant owners go to eat.

Nice little place on the square, food is very good. We stuck with appetizers alone and there is no way we could have had a complete meal after that. Friendly staff, big negative is no debit or credit cards.

Stopped around 6:00 PM on a Tuesday. Didn't realize the place is cash only until being seated and seeing it printed on the back of wait staff shirts. They do have an ATM machine inside the place. Not a large dining establishment, but the take-out...More

We have been here several times and will continue to patronize this restaurant.... The food is excellent! Place is always full, but they get you in pretty quickly. The place smells amazing because they smoke their pork right out back... Make sure you take cash...More

I've lived in Monroe, WI, for ten years and this is far and away the best restaurant, not only the best of it's kind, in our area. 100% satisfaction every time with delicious smoked meats, burgers, tacos & burritos, specials, and terrific service.

I had the shrimp tacos. They were delicious! A lot of food I had leftovers for dinner. Only reason not 5 stars is they do not take reservations and only accept cash both are inconvenient.
