I went and ordered a take out for 4 people and surprisingly it was fast and the food was great. The server was friendly and nice making sure I got everything I need. Would recommend to anyone wanting great barbecue dishes.

The BBQ is good not great but still very good. Had a combo appetizer plate very large portions. Some things come with a lot of sauce on it. Have a great variety of sauces you can add.

Have eaten here twice. Both times the food was pretty good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was good but short on meat.

Really enjoy the BBQ here. The meats are excellent, great sauce but not too much of it. The sandwiches are all very tasty, mix of meats for great flavor. Tesla supercharger 100 yards away
