Hands down a must stop, the food is top notch and slow smoked out in two custom pits. Brisket grilled cheese w/bacon on garlic toast is my hands down favorite next to the ribs. IF YOU MISS OUT YOU WILL REGRET IT.

I drove past this place several times. I am sorry I didn't try it sooner. The pulled pork sandwich was amazing, the coleslaw was very good, and the onion rings and fried zucchini were out of this world. A must stop for a delicious meal.

More of a shack, the atmosphere is like a family outing at a park shelter with no inside seating. Take it to go or sit at the picnic tables. Coworker brought in their ribs for his lunch and they looked/smelled incredible. I tasted their sauce...More
