The BBQ was good, not great. The place is a bit run down and it was $23 for two small plates. Better value & better food can be found elsewhere. Will NOT return on our next visit.

We took our meal to go for a picnic at Deep Creek. The barbeque was good and so were the sides(slaw, baked beans, potato salad and fries). My son also ordered some ribs that he said were very good.

We were hoping this place had awesome bbq. Not so much. The pork and brisket was not very good. It was either prepackaged bbq and not smoked on premises or old leftovers. The meat was chopped and not pulled. Personal preference I suppose.

Had dinner here with my wife and 2 teenage daughters. We all agreed it was the best meal we've had on our vacation so far. Super casual and reasonable prices.
