This is my favorite BBQ spot. I recommend the brisket (choppped or sliced) with the traditional sauce, but I always get some spicy bbq sauce on the side as well. The mac and cheese is a home run. FYI - I won't eat coleslaw anywhere...More

I can’t say enough good things about this place. They do everything right. I’ve been here a dozen times and they’ve never disappointed. Even if they run out of an item because everything is made daily you can find something else on the menu that...More

Hi! They don't specifically have a sampler platter, but you can order all the meats in smaller quantities than usual, giving you the opportunity to try more. I looooove this place! Hope you so too!
