When a table of 9 walk in at 2 01 you do not tell them you closed from 2 till 4. You seat them. They need to work on their customer relationship. Its not like they are the beaten path.

We apologize that we turned you away at 2:15 on Friday afternoon May 3rd; but our advertising including the home page of our website, menus & front doors state we are closed from 2:00-4:00 Tues.- Fri. We have had the same operating hours since our opening in 2000. Our policy is to seat our customers up to 10 minutes past closing.

I had the combo plate with the leanest smoked brisket I have ever had. Ribs and pulled pork were great. Had the spicy beans and they were just tangy and wonderful. I took a lot of leftovers home. Hubby had the smoked chicken and it was moist and tender. It appeared that the waitresses did team service so you were always being attended to. The owners should be very proud of this restaurant

My wife and I knew this was going to be a great place for barbecue when there was a line of customers outside the door waiting for the restaurant to open at 11:00 a.m. The restaurant is very clean and the service is excellent. The waitress was terrific, and our lunches were served to us in about ten minutes. The barbeque was the best we've had in a long time with good size portions and reasonable prices. We will definitely make the 56 mile trip to eat there again.
