Coleslaw swimming in Mayonnaise, Brisket and sausage swimming in BBQ sauce. Potatoe salad had too much mustard. All in all. Terrible food. No bbq flavor. And only one slice of bread so had to pay a dollar more for more bread. My husband said ribs...More

We went for a late lunch and it was delicious. We had brisket, sausage, coleslaw, and potato salad. The servers were friendly and helpful with our questions. Would definitely would go again.

Visiting from California and looking for good BBQ. Stumbled on this place, cute, family run establishment and friendly employees. They offer a tomahawk ribeye which looked delicious but we passed on this visit. We tried the brisket without sauce, it was tender but really mediocre....More
