I love BBQ and was excited that this place was so close to my hotel. I walked over for dinner and the smokers out front were a good sign. The prices are OK about mid range for BBQ. I chose the Salmon which was a...More

The smoker sits out front! This BBQ is legit! Tender ... Smoky ... Delicious! We added red beans and rice, creamy Mac and cheese, creamy Cole slaw and corn bread...all very good. Worth stopping off the beaten path.

Hadn't been there for a long while, and probably couldn't take the wife there. Place was dirty, and disheveled. Staff was nice but they need to get out from behind the counter and get the porch seating cleaned off once in a while. And they...More
