Get the smoked wings (quick fry) they are fantastic! Great selection of beers and good place to watch sports (especially foot ball season). Can be a bit loud when they have music, so sit in the back, but no matter where you sit you can see a TV and get really good service.

Food is decent, atmosphere is fun. Pool tables, darts, and trivia make for a good time. I would say that it is more popular for having a beer and a game, rather than for their BBQ, although it wasn't bad. Will definitely go back.

I was recommended this place by a lady at the front desk of our hotel and man was she right. This place has great food! Though traveling with my older mother, I wouldn't bring her here. Its a little loud for her liking, but if you were to come with some friends or even solo it would be perfect. Great... More
