I've been going her for years. Ventilation still sits behind the bar and greets everyone that comes in. Very good BBQ, fast, friendly service. Nothing fancy about the building but good atmosphere, looks just like it did 30 years ago when I first went there!

We came to Taylor to check out three BBQ places. This place had comparable meat to the others but the sauce is outstanding. The other two places either super sweet or very thin sauce. The price for 2 meats, potato salad, and beans is $9.00...More
