“Great Food, Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Small Restaurant and limited menu, but the food is awesome ! Great tasting BBQ sauce, and a good portion of food. Have to try the Pulled Pork Sandwich, it is piled high with pulled pork. Also
their homemade chips are great. If you want to try something a little different that is really good, get their cowboy nachos. A little out of the way, but well worth the extra couple of miles to drive,
we always stop in at least once when in town.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

I really like their BBQ sauce. Fun staff, smells great from the parking lot! Not a huge menu, but everything you would be looking for in a casual BBQ restaurant.

“Out of ribs on a Saturday evening!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

My review is based on the fact that they did not have any ribs (okay they had three baby backs, no seriously three ribs...not slabs). So my review is not of the food, but of the lack of ability to forecast demand. I have been in the hospitality business for years and if any of my places fell this far short, heads would roll!

“Excellent Find”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Was driving by and stopped for lunch, glad we did. Food was excellent. Had their version of cheese steak which is tri tip with cheese, peppers, onions. Excellent. Wife had pulled pork sandwich was she said was very good. Home made potato chips out of this world.Staff friendly and helpful with menu selections. Yes it is a hole in the wall but worth going to. Highly recommended.
