Decided on the BBQ chicken sandwich. The chicken was good, but there was nothing else besides BBQ sauce. Me being from Texas, i would liked to have it with pickles and onions. Next time I come I will just ask. The bun was really soft...More

Nothing else give the meat and chicken that smoke-permeated flavor like a long slow rest in the smoker. Also everything here is nice and fresh. They do skinless chicken breast --delicious if that's your thing. Our group was very happy with the food.

Yes, the food, if you get what you order, is okay. But that's not what motivates this review. We ordered food to be picked up, got it and brought it home, opened the bags, and found that we received a different-food, lower-volume, inferior order. I...More
