We stopped because we were hungry and were very glad that we did. The ribs were delicious as were the chopped brisket sandwiches. There are several BBQ sauce options at the tables. Great view across Turnagain.

Got the Barn yard plate to get a taste of everything. It had St. Louis ribs were tender and juicy and needed no sauce.
Chicken had a great flavor. Sausage has a great flavor. Mac and cheese has a good flavor and so do the greens. The fried pickles were the bomb. Lightly battered
Slices are so good!

I cook competition BBQ and do not often stop for BBQ joints because most pretend to do BBQ. This place does it right.. I got the barnyard which was hot sausage, chicken thighs, ribs, and two sides. Very well done. My wife got brisket. Well done again. Not bad for arm pit bbq. Great place

The meats we tried were ok to good. The coleslaw was so so. The beans were good. The brisket was good. The BBQ sauces provided were mediocre at best. This place is a BBQ place. Not a huge menu. The sides need to be great not so so. The sauces need to be great not so so. This was at the Anchorage Loc

My reaction to the food here may have been somewhat enhanced due to the fact that I had just biked Powerline Pass (the downhill is sketchy without disc brakes!). But I don't know of any other strictly BBQ places in AK and it certainly was delicious. Not cheap, but yummy.
