The menu has been scaled back since my 2015 visit, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's still plenty to choose from including Cajun and Mexican dishes. And, while you wait for your meal, check out their really cool paper-plate artwork on which menu...More

Good BBQ that's quickly made and easy to enjoy on their outdoor patio. The long line moved quickly but was worth the wait! Great, friendly staff too.
