If you are not looking for this restaurant, you might miss it......which would be a terrible choice on anyone's behalf. All I can say is try it, and you will not be disappointed. They have great BBQ, but it is the other stuff I enjoy...More

Hi, Offsite, yes we can cater. Our restaurant only seats about 35-40 people at one time & we are not able to put together tables in our small space. Our catering menu is listed on our website Thanks Kim
