“Nice little BBQ joint”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

My son and I split the "Pork Special" of ribs, sausage and pulled pork. The generous pork platter was big enough to fill both of us up. We came in a 8:30 p.m. and the place closed at nine and the owners were very friendly and talked to us as we finished our meal. We tried all three sauces and the sweet and hot were very good.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

This place is fabulous! We got the sampler platter..pulled pork was delicious, kielbasi was tender and fabulous, and ribs were tasty, tender and fall-off-the-bone delicious. This place is our new BBQ of choice when in the area. I see the comments about the sides..we found them to be perfectly enough! This is the first place we told everyone about when we got home! You won't be disappointed!

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We were starving on our way to go white water rafting and came upon this place during our drive. We went pretty early in the day, just before noon. The staff was super friendly. The prices were very fair and the food was good. Just be warned - the rib sandwich was filled with bones, making it difficult to eat. The sides came in very small cups. Overall, everyone still enjoyed their meal and we were glad to have found this place.
