Friendly, relaxing and noisy environment but that how it should be for a good old bbq ribs! It's not a fancy place and sort of by itself, not easy to find but look for the sign as there is nothing around and dark. Several times...More

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
