First off the service was terrible. The girl "greeting" us could have cared less about her job or our eating experience. The food was Luke warm and flavorless. Our group had the chicken, pork, and ribs. All were equally flavorless. The only one in the...More

Family of 5 went there for dinner. Place doesn't look like much but the food is excellent. We got the ribs and pulled pork. Had huge portions they we took home for snacking later. Very tender and juicy ribs.

Stopped here after rafting. Small place. Some indoor and outdoor seating. Chairs inside are really uncomfortable. The pulled pork was good. I have had better. Baked beans and rolls pretty good. Good sauces on table. Super small bathrooms. Pretty good lunch.

Found this hidden treasure treasure out on a family afternoon ride. Some of the best BBQUE I've ever had.

You can tell everything here is homemade! The food is fantastic. The barbeque is perfect. The potato salad and Mac and cheese are really good! The only thing that could be improved is the sauces. The sauces were good but tasted like Sweet Baby Rays....More
