Even though the food was poor, trying to get out of the strip mall to turn on Route 25 was impossible!

It's a BBQ bar, with great selections of homemade sauces. Service is hit or miss because sometimes the bartender has to do double-duty, but otherwise a great meal.

This place is easily missed as it is in a nondescript strip mall on route 25 (a road with many nondescript strip malls). The bar area is where most of the action is and it definitely has a "towny" feel to it as it seems...More

We love the pulled pork here because it is not slathered in sauce, you add your own at the table. The prices are really good. Pulled pork sliders and pulled pork nachos are especially good. Very friend and accommodating staff.
