Good place for brisket, pulled pork, chicken or ribs. Good sides but we miss the drunken apples. North woods decor. Good service.

One of our favorite spots to eat when we visit Lincoln. They have friendly, knowledgeable staff and a great menu. The variety of barbecue sauces will fit any appetite and tickle your taste buds. If you do not try this restaurant, you will be missing a lot.
