While strolling around Mackinaw City, another tourist referred us here. Clean and not too busy when we stopped for lunch but filled up quickly. I had Chicken Nachos and my husband tried the Brisket Nachos. Both were so good and served in a timely fashion.

Brand new BBQ joint finally up north. We offer many different types of smoked meat piled high on a bun. We have a smoke right outside of the restaurant and we smoke our own meats. Everything gets smoked from the big juicy brisket to the savory homemade smoke joes. And if u and your friends or loved ones don't care for the smoke flavor we have wonderful burger selections to build it your way.
