First off, if you have ever eaten REAL BBQ, this place will thoroughly disappoint you. The prices are way too high for what you get, quality and quantity wise. If they ran a half price special it still wouldn't be worth it.

Had the Pork, Beef and Chicken as take out with beans and salad. It was really good and moist. Best I have had above the Mason-Dixon line.

We love this place and go there often. For lunch I usually get the BBQ bowl and if I'm there for dinner my favorite is the brisket. The atmosphere is great and most decorations are local and historical.
