Great place to stop for lunch. My hubby and I split the pulled pork BBQ platter....enough for 2 of us! Counter service, lovely venue. Recommended! (I lived the chipotle BBQ sauce mixed with Kansas City sweet. Cole slaw lovely, jalapeño corn bread deliciously unique!)

The meat seasoning was a bit spicy for me but my kids loved it. The pecan pie was served warm with whipped cream and was soooo delicious! My kiddos almost ate The whole piece before I got my second bite!

I love BBQ and this is some of the best, even the sides are delightful. We also had the hand carved ribeye steak, one of the best. We eat out often and all over the country and did not expect to find this quality.
