We were here with a tour bus and were treated like royalty. Food is tender, trimmed and delicious. Try all the different BBQ sauces...I liked the Original best but two others were very close.

We had a really great experience eating here. Our waitress Anneliese (Sorry if I butchered her name) was excellent. We were fortunate to come in during a very slow time of the day so we had her full attention. We tried all the types of...More

This place is delicious! Not much of an option for dessert though. The employees and managers are super friendly and active. This place also sells the sauce they have in a little store, and they have a rewards program!
