Description: Since 1991 we've been smokin' and sauce slingin' so we know how to cook - and treat barbeque with the respect it deserves. Our sauce is homemade in our kitchen in Lake George, NY, and our meats are seasoned & cooked to perfection. Ours is some of the best BBQ north of Memphis, and we aren't afraid to say so. But don't take our word for it, come and taste the sensation for yourself. Have us cater your next event!

The food was great, but the night that we went they didn't have 1/2 of their bbq meats which was a bit of a disappointment. We sat upstairs which was pretty neat, but the waitress didn't seem very interested. The hostess was wonderful. The prices were great, you can definitely split a combo meal between 2 adults!

Great food, casual place, food came out fast, we both had a pork bbq sandwich. Comes with a side for $9. Reasonable prices. Bbq was sweet and had good taste, plenty of food, would definitely recommend.

I always hate to write a negative review, however, I would skip this place if I were you. We headed here looking for some good BBQ during a recent stay in Lake George. We arrived late on a rainy Thursday evening, and we were greeted warmly. We chose to sit outside (nicely protected from the weather by a canopy), and it seemed to move downhill from there. We were told our wait person was "busy" and they would find someone to help us. Although we did receive friendly service from (I suppose, not "our" servers), they seemed a bit confused and disorganized. My half rack of baby back ribs arrived dry, overcooked, and glazed with average-tasting sauce. Definitely not finger-lickin' good. Too bad. Wish it had been better.

We visited this establishment on our recent vacation to Lake George...The food delicious, served promptly as ordered & efficient waitstaff with a bit of humor. We were in & out with an accurate check within an hour & 15 minutes as we lingered to listen to some of the live entertainment.

Was disappointed from the time we met the hostess and she forgot we were there and where we wanted to sit. Once seated took 20 minutes to see our server. The French Onion Soup was like beef flavored ocean water and the ribs were burnt and dry. Never saw our server again until it was time for the bill. Best to just keep driving.
