“wonderful eatery”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Food was great, waitperson was fun, a real fireman was also working that night and he was a hoot, (he could have been the owner, we weren't sure on that). The only downside was they don't have a lot of tables for the crowds it draws.

“Great Atmosphere! Great BBQ”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

Love the food. The BBQ is the big draw but don't miss the cheesy potato casserole. Often there is live music. Fun to listen to a variety of live local music while you eat. (Maybe not conducive to a quiet romantic conversation).

“Great Local BBQ”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Run by 2 firefighters, this place produces some of the best smoking hot sandwiches I've had. The beer is cold, and the live n terrain meet is of good quality.

“Firehouse BBQ”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I went with a friend for lunch , and found the pulled pork very good., Overall the building is very nice and has alot of history behind it. The servers were friendly and attentive. The owners have decorated it very nice and have alot of photographs showing the history of the building.
