WOW! A great out of way gem in a average looking building. Tremendous amount of hickory smoked BBQ goodness served for a reasonable price. Ribs, brisket and chicken expertly prepared. Yummy selection of birch beers plus a bar setup of half dozen sauces to top your favorite meat. Sweet potatoes and cornbread are superb sides. We hear the baked beans and cole slaw are winners too. Sides are made from scrarch. Child friendly portions. Plentiful parking. Take out orders welcomed. Groups call beforehand.

Location off the beaten path. Atmosphere average yes clean.
Service is slow. Better than having a microwave meal. Meal was served hot. The flavor I didn’t enjoy. The smoke flavor was not tasty. BBQ sauce had a slight bite but was not good.

I’m born and Texas bred. I know my bbq. THIS PLACE IS AWESOME! The brisket is oh so delicious. The pulled turkey is a very close second. Absolutely worth finding! You will NOT be disappointed.

Great beef brisket sandwich and sweet potato fries. Detour off highway worth the extra distance. Will come back.

I was trying a number bbq places in the area to look for catering an upcoming party.

The pork bbq was prepared with a vinegar based marinade similar to North Carolina style. I kind of wish that they let the meat speak for itself instead of adding flavor. They have good sauces so I not sure why the meat marinade that cut into the overall flavor.

The portion was huge so get a fork to catch spillage. The fountain drinks were 2.29 which seems excessive even after several refills. The large pork bbq was 9.95.

I have been to tons (and tons) of barbecue places across the country and this was pretty middle of the road.
