I really wanted to try the burnt ends , but they were out. Everything was great. The building is somewhat hidden and so is the parking area.

If you look for a true high end BBQ place, this must be the place. They serve a variety of meats (from beef through pork, to turkey), and make one of the best smoked salmon sandwiches I had in my life. The sides are nothing...More

They don't take reservations, so if you want to get in, ALL of your party needs to arrive about an hour early. You wont be seated unless ALL of your party is there.
