A great find in a small town!! The food was amazing, from the side dishes to the homemade dessert not to mention the amazing barbeque. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere was perfect. A great dining experience!!!

We were traveling through the area & had to drive a little out of the way, but it was worth it!...Quick, tasty, cute, clean, affordable, very good pulled pork, & excellent chocolate pecan pie! It's very tiny, but it's a really great little place!

Friends treated me to my first visit. They recommended the ribs. Wow. Huge portion and delicious. I chose cole slaw and that day's secret side of a shell pasta salad. Friends also got ribs with the boiled red potato side (which I coveted and will order if I get to visit again) and a huge pulled pork sandwich. We were also fortunate to enjoy the red cream soda. Homey atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. Don't miss this jewel!

I had always seen this restaurant going to and from Michigan City and decided to stop there one day. There food was very good and I would recommend it even though it's a little out of the way.
