This small BBQ joint in the middle of the quaint village of Sharon surprises. We have been several times now and the food and service are consistent.

Fabulous BBG pulled pork, corn bread and other delights normally found only in the south or special food areas in cities like Sylvia's in Harlem NY. Charismatic owner and great staff. They also cater special events in Litchfield CO.

Mostly a take-out place, very informal with scant seating. Excellent rack of ribs, and also pulled pork. Reasonable prices.

The food was fabulous here......We were here for a wedding but were looking for a place to eat for lunch. Our AirBnB had their menu in a binder in the apartment and it looked really appealing and boy was it! Truly worth it people.
