New to the area and have been in search of quality BBQ for months. This place is acceptable, average at best. The pulled pork came on a nice bun; however, there was actually TOO much smoke and almost no hint of seasoning. Sauce is sweet,...More

I had the Pork Chop, they made up for lack of flavor and toughness with quantity. My friend had the Delmonico steak and again lacking flavor but quite large. We both ended up using steak sauce which is very rare for either of us .

Large menu with good food. They over cooked my steak, but it was still good. A couple of local beers on tap as well. Follow the signs or gps.

Unfortunately, according to their Facebook page, they are closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! I had lunch there earlier today! When you visit, the Pulled Pork Nachos are a must!
