“Dirty & Horrible...”
Reviewed December 5, 2009

If you know anything about BBque... you'll stay clear of this place... The sausage was so dried out it was inedible, the brisket was dry as a bone and the sauce was just lousy.

The side dishes are displayed haphazardly and look as though they've been sitting for quite some time. Frankly I was afraid to try any of them. The atmosphere is dark and dirty and the owner appears to be annoyed with your presence... The prices are very high, the food is lousy, the place is dirty and the owner is surly... A bad combination anyway you look at it.

LOL this place is an experience. Amazing slow cooked bbq meats. Scary as heck interior though, like the Hills Have Eyes. Nasty sawdust on the floor, cobwebs and inch thick dust coating the overhead fans and multiple wall decorations. The owner is creepy too but actually pretty nice. But if youre a cute lady he'll offer you a free sausage wink wink. Also don't forget to get some fried artichokes, some of the best in the area.
