I don't find anything world famous about this place. We had ok service but it was $98 for 4 burgers and 3 kids meals and 3 sodas and 2 kids lemonade. The patties are very thin and cooked about twice as long as they needed to be. Kids chicken strips were also over cooked and came much after we got our burgers. The fries were good. We won't go back.

Best. BBQ. Ever. Homemade sides. 'Nuff said. But since I have a minimum of 50 characters, I have to say you absolutely must must go there. Service is fabulous too.

I have to disagree with most of the other reviewers. Maybe the hamburgers are good, but we had the bbq and it was really disappointing.The brisket was tasteless (tasted as if it had been boiled), the tri tip was similar though better but rather dry. The ribs were OK but we do better- much better - at home. Everything tasted warmed over, and not warm enough at that. All meats were room temp. The 3 sauces were sort of fun to try, but not remarkable. The best part was the black eyed peas (and corn and fat back) side, which arrived piping hot! Very strange. I don't know where this place gets its reputation. No way is this good bbq. The service was fine. Maybe it was an off night, way off.

On our trip up the North Coast we stopped here on the way up and back down for their sandwiches. The pulled pork and brisket were both really good. A number of other reviewers complained about dryness and long waits and poor service, but these weren't an issue for us. The meat on both occasions was moist, with nice smoke and the accompanying sauces were very good. Service was relatively quick and efficient considering it was lunch time on a holiday weekend. We'll be back.
