When we have friends over we like to buy the brisquet by the pound then make side dishes at home. The meat is very good. They also have a dining room.

This restaurant satisfied our taste for BBQ when we were there for the weekend. We bought the combo meat meal, brisket, pulled pork and smoked turkey. All was very tender and tasty.

Please bring back the microwave! Many times the meat isn't very hot to start with. Then if you put some shredded cheese on the sandwich the meat is just cold. The microwave is a necessity if you like a hot sandwich.

When you think of good smoked meats, you have to think of this place. The pulled pork is fabulous, the turkey is great, the ribs are to die for

I would think that you could just come in, but maybe call ahead to be sure. The earlier you come in the better.
