It SMELLS great. Nice atmosphere. Overly sweet sauce. Slaw made with klamato olives, too weird. Won't be back.

Have eaten here a few times and it is just OK...catered a couple of parties from here and the last time the baked beans were inedible....very vinegary and no one ate them and I got a ton of it! I would say it is average at best.

Meatiest, fall off the bone tender ribs smoked to perfection. Beautiful bark. You'll be tempted to forego the sauce because the ribs are do delicious "naked" but if you do, you'll miss out on the most flavorful BBQ sauce you've ever tasted. You can't go wrong with any of the sides. Bryan also makes a flavorful beef brisket chili, somewhat... More

Orders are placed at the front and picked up there. Barbeque was good. I had a pulled pork sandwich with a baked potato salad side. The side was a little different. Drinks are placed via a vending machine. Be aware that the Minute Maid lemonade contains no lemonade at all , just artifical stuff. Since I have to be careful... More

A favorite place to bring out of town guests for a casual lunch. Tasty BBQ. Aroma to die for. You order at the counter and wait a bit to have your name called. Awesome slaw with olives. Order extra BBQ to go!

We were there on a Saturday evening and we shared the chicken and brisket. It was very delicious. At this restaurant, you place your order at the counter and when it is ready, your name is called.

This place is the best. Easy access, no nonsense service. You walk right up to inside counter and place your order. I had the half rack ribs with side of potato salad and side of beans. My wife likes vegetables so she ordered a large side of coleslaw. The server calls your name when the order is ready and brings... More

The sandwiches were delicious. The food was so good we went back a second time in one weeks vacation. The staff was also very friendly, helped me decide what local beer to have.
