The food was awesome and staff so friendly and helpful. We had small wait 20 minutes for group of 7 but the food made up for it. Only draw back was the meal portions left no room for cheesecake. It looked awesome too!

Solid BBQ that was located close to our hotel accommodations. Sausage was very good and would recommend it. Smoked chicken also tasty on our visit and would order again.
