Very unique but good menu for southern/modern BBQ. I love their pulled pork and ribs! There are 2 of these near the resort. We go to the one further away because it’s located inside a brewery.

A slice of New Orleans in California. Great restaurant for an interesting meal. Catfish, beef brisket and a Pabst, followed by a rye. I thought I was in Louisiana

This is a small place so you might need to wait but it’s totally worth it. Try the Dirty fries for sure. Drinks are great and the barbecue is awesome! We will definitely return. Great for families!
