From out-of-town; we heard about the restaurant from Triple DDD. We were not disappointed. We were seating quickly; orders taken and good food delivered. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Thanks! Definitely would try again if in the area.

I had a half rack of ribs with baked beans and corn bread. I felt that the beans were out of this world. The ribs I felt were dry and tuff in spots. The bbq sauce was very tasty and spicy.

Their food was very good. The atmosphere is great. They had live music there when we visited. Personally I tried the brisket which was very good. The rest of the party found the food very good too.
