“Not as good as last time we were there”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Last year we ate at this restaurant and were very impressed with the taste, quality and presentation of the food items. This year when we were in town again, we looked forward to another good meal. We were disappointed. All of our food was overcooked, lacked any special flavor. Maybe it was just a bad day for the chef/cook.

“Yummy bar b-q!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Love the pulled pork sammies! Very friendly service and decent value. They have delicious cornbread made from scratch! Wash it all down with homemade Arnold Palmers!

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I make it a point to try and schedule trips so we can either be in Ellensburg for lunch or dinner just because we enjoy the food here so much. We stop about every six months and the owner always remembers us and makes it a point to stop by and say hi. I lived in Texas so know what good BBQ should taste like and I have always been satisfied eating here.

“Good overall”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Nice clean Western theme in good decorative order, with a friendly welcome and good service.

I tried pork and beef ribs as a combo, both of which were a little dry and overdone for my taste. The home made calico beans were excellent, as was the cornbread muffin - BBQ sauce also very good and tasty. Beer in quirky cowboy boot mugs was fun if a little silly. Very attentive service.
