My wife and I was traveling on vacation from Illinois and happened to drive by this place at lunch time. Being the BBQ lovers we are we decided to turn around and go back because BBQ places seems to be scarce up here. Great choice to go back. Pulled pork sandwich was really good ! Great tasty bark on it... More

We found this place just by driving by. It caught the eye of our group of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids) and we decided to give it a try. We were ALL glad we did.

Good BBQ. No inside seating or bathroom or would have given 5 stars. Everything home made and tastes like it! Wish we had one in our hometown.

Very good for a small place. The food is tasty, well proportioned and served nicely. The person who served us was very nice. If you expected a large restaurant, this will be a let down. It is a nice stop.

We biked to the little restaurant from the marina downtown where we and our friends were staying. This is mainly a takeout type operation, but we move some picnic tables to a shady location, sharing 3 meats and two sides for each couple. Good BBQ and a fun experience.
