Saw this in the hotel book and had read that they deliver. I wasn't expecting anything like I got. 12 hour cherry wood smoked brisket, homemade rings and slaw. I was just hoping for okay, but it was better than okay. It was very good....More

The meat is fantastic, smoky, juicy, and tender. The sauces are good as well. I had a salad with beef and mushrooms, it was so good. Drinks are good too. Definitely worth trying!
