Many very good choices of barbecue meats. They have a variety of sauces in squeeze bottles on the tables. Best choice for groups of four or more is their combo meal. You get a variety of meat and sides for a reasonable price.

I had the Founders feast. Loved the beans and slaw. Chicken was moist (white). BBQ very good with assortment of sauces. (XXX habanero- whoot) then the ribs. Only thing not so good was the corn. Who has room for that anyway?
