This place was recommended to us so we tired it and were pleased with what we found. We were advised to get there early because the food is sold out quickly. We were pleased with what we ordered and would recommend it to others.

Been here several times. The place is simple but the food is everything you want in a BBQ place. The servings are huge. The sides all taste homemade. The sauces are good. The ribs, brisket, and pulled pork are all very good.

This place is so popular that if you do not order in advance they will not be able to fill your order. They always attract a big crowd and usually run out of food in the early evening, turning people away.

We got smoked turkey. It was a little fatty and moist. Crinkle fries were awesome. Wasn't a fan of the BBQ sauces. Peanut butter pie was amazing! Very friendly.

Only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, this place is very popular with the local crowd and once you taste the ribs or pork you will know why. Large portions, reasonable prices and awesome food bring me back often.
