This spot is a little off the beaten path and has some real novelty because it's located at a private airport! Though, you should come for the food, not the novelty! The BBQ is delicious and my parents love to drive the hour from their...More

This out of the way restaurant is beside an airstrip and is definitely an experience.Great friendly service in a homely, rustic dining room. Shaded patio is also very charming. Food is excellent, although the brisket is lean and not moist.
