We had the ribs, fries, mac n cheese... and we all loved it, especially that bbq sauce. We were staying at the hotel next door and it took about 10 minutes to get our order.

Wasn't great but wasn't awful. We went for a late lunch and the brisket was very dry. The coleslaw was great but my sweet potato was TINY. Service was good and the atmosphere was perfect for a BBQ stop.
