By grandfather always loved dinosaur, he passed away last year so we decided to eat her in honor of him. It was good, but doesn’t beat Kansas City BBQ.

A wonderful place to get absolutely delicious barbecued ribs and chicken. Staff is very friendly, and the free live music on Saturday nights is an added bonus to venture inside.

A place you need to stop at. Great BBQ, atmosphere and service! Pulled pork and ribs are a must. Live music is an added bonus when they have it! Mac and cheese is a side that always should be ordered.
