This stuck in the corner BBQ shack is lip smacking good. Some of the most tender BBQ chicken I have ever had. This place is not a whole lot to look at with a small parking lot, difficult to get in and out of with...More

We hadn't been there in a while, but stopped in recently and, if anything, the quality has gone up. We were impressed by the generous portions for the price and the BBQ tasted great. The sides were excellent--especially the meaty onion rings and sweet potato...More
