“Meh, lots of food but no smoke”

First off, the guy that runs this place is a very nice man and does well by his customers.

Second, there is no smoke. I gather they just slow cook their meat in the oven. To me, smoke is the definition of BBQ. Meat with BBQ sauce is not. It's unfortunate as everything is tender and their sauce is excellent, and the portions are generous, however there is just no smoke.

Grade A BBQ! The pulled pork sandwich was awesome and huge. It does require extra napkins and wetnaps, though. The ribs were amazing too. Coleslaw was the only disappointment (then again, I don't really like coleslaw). The baked beans and potato salad were also really good, and the cornbread was great too.

We've been here 2 years in a row and can't wait to return again.

OK, I'm a BBQ person, so somewhat picky but their ribs are to die for. They are slightly on the pricy side but so worth it! This is just a little walk up joint. Take out or eat outside only. Their home-made sauce is so good, I went back and bought a bottle.

There's not much space inside, so the building can get crowded when you order. The food was ready fairly quickly, just had to step back in a couple times to check.

I've had better barbeque in Memphis, but for a Lake Michigan town, the ribs and chicken were pretty good.

Located near a city green space. This place serves great ribs that you can sit at a picnic table and eat. Tender and the sauce is outstanding. Save the cornbread to sop up the extra sauce!
