This is some of the best BBQ that you will ever eat. We generally get the ribs and pork steak combo with the sides of red skinned potato salad and baked beans; it is delicious. The service is always friendly and if you ask for suggestions they'll lead you to the right selection. My daughter (8 years old) loves their pulled pork kids meal. The only "bad" experience that I've had there is when we purchased a bottle of their sauce (and we got one free with the purchase) was that the sauce expired a week later (both bottles). Tip: If you don't plan on eating until later in the evening, call your order in ahead of time. They will sell out quite often so this will ensure that you'll still be able to eat that great BBQ. Their dining area is clean & spacious. They are a tad bit pricey, but it is well worth it. This isn't cheap BBQ -- the quality of it will be worth the price.

Excellent BBQ. Have tried their pulled pork, brisket, chili, and pork steaks. All were excellent. Order at the counter; they bring your plate to you. Diner atmosphere. 3 variations of sauce you can add to your taste.

Had the glazed 1/2 chicken which was excellent, but was not crazy about the house BBQ sauces, baked beens and house potatoes salad

I had the rib plate.

Ribs were well cooked, if a touch on the fatty side (yeah, I know, go get a gardenburger if you're concerned with fat).

They offer a range of interesting sauces: a house sauce, sold in bottles to take home, that's very dark and sweet. They also have vinegar and mustard based sauces on the counter.

The baked potato side was done perfectly, which is increasingly rare.

The cole slaw was crisp and refreshing with little or no mayonnaise in the mix.

Across the street is "The Kitchen", open 24 hours, which looks like a decent place for late night snack or cup of coffee.
