This place has been there for a while, so it looks like it belongs in an old movie scene... the barbecue is fabulous... it is no wonder they have an entrance full of trophies!!!

Really like the BBQ plate and the fries are awesome. The sandwichs and beans are also very good. Ribs are also a big plus.
