Wanted a barbecue pork and Cole slaw sandwich and passed this place on the highway. So glad I remembered the name. Prices were good...The sandwich was awesome ... Also had a hot dog that was good. This will definitely stay on my Friday night places to eat list! Thanks for good food and fast service

the portions are huge, and the cost is mid-range, about $15-20 per person including non-alcoholic drink. ribs and pulled pork are available and other foods as well.
