The options for good BBQ in the area are quite limited. Don't expect white tablecloths though as this is a counter service restaurant that is mist often carry out. Meat is good and tender. My favorite sides arw the baked beans and green beans. A tad pricey but worth it if you have that taste for BBQ.

A bit on the pricey side for a meal, but the food is very good. I've tried the chicken, pork and brisket. Next up is the ribs. Wasn't impressed with the baked potato with meat topping but the salads and sandwiches were very good.

The restaurant is very simple and they are not out to gouge your pocket book. The prices are very reasonable for a BBQ place. I ordered the pulled pork and brisket slices. They were both amazing and the smoke flavor comes right through. I'll be back to eat here and will be bringing more friends here.

We were pleasantly received at the door by Marianne - the owner's wife! Choosing the 3 meat plate provides an economical taste of many options. We chose: Smoked turkey, two ribs, and sliced brisket with a side of green beans and a baked potato with all the extras. Outstanding and perfectly cooked with a tasty sauce. The owner was most cordial offering a taste of their new macaroni and cheese, and a few extra ribs since we were celebrating our anniversary! A most delightful experience in this small restaurant. Ambience is not necessary for this quality of vittles!

We went here for an early dinner on a Tuesday night. One table was occupied when we arrived but they got busier as we ate. It's not a big place but there are about 10 tables. You order at the counter. Staff was friendly and efficient. We both got pulled pork sandwiches and they were very tasty. Husband got the chili and it was very good. Cole slaw was just okay. Sadly they don't have fries. We'll probably come back to try the ribs.
