So far the best brisket in the downtown area. Definitely try the brisket egg rolls and a real moonshine cocktail. If you want real BBQ in the downtown area, look no further.

We stopped in around 5:30 p.m. on New Years Eve, and were immediately informed by the hostess that they would be closing at 7:00 p.m. for a private event. No problem, as we were just going to sit at the "bar" (only about 5 chairs)...More

The food and atmosphere were fantastic and modestly priced. I would recommend the BLTB sandwich which is the best that I have ever had. It is made with their own smokehouse bacon. You will love it.

Brought to you by the people that own Rocket and Sunda. We tried the Baby Back ribs and the rotisserie chicken. Both were very tasty. Didn't quite understand the whole "moonshine" schtick. Tried one..never again. Maybe it is an acquired taste...but I don't have room...More
