Not good flavors on the ribs nor the pulled pork. The brisket was sliced so thin, tasted like cardboard. Waitress was friendly, but they were under staffed on a Tuesday night. Cornbread was good.

Ordered brisket. It was dry. Service was just OK. I've been to great BBQ places across the country, The Salt Lick in Driftwood TX, Dreamland in Tuscaloosa, just to name two. This place is not even close. Mediocre at best.
