Best BBQ around for sure. Awesome hot sauce, get yourself a bottled big red ice cold. Cash only, but dont worry they have an ATM right inside.

Finally another great BBQ place to eat. I'm glad we made the time to stop b/c we're usually blowing through to get to where we're going sooner. The brisket was lean with just enough fat to give it that don't serve beef ribs but the...More

The food was worth the wait. We ate at an odd time, like around 2:30-3 when the lunch crowd dies down. The wait wasn't too bad around that time.

Yes, it was indicated on the price board on our last visit. I don't remember the exact price, but thought it looked like a good deal.
