The pulled pork is very good as well as the garlic mashed potatoes and baked beans. Service was always with a smile. There are very nice people there.

Came out here to eat on a Friday evening. The restaurant was not too busy when we arrived. We were politely sat and told the nightly special. My wife ordered the pulled pork sandwich and I had the brisket. Both were very good options and the brisket included 2 sides. We both ordered fries and you get a bunch. Overall... More

Stopped at this smokehouse on a sales call. The first thing you'll notice is that the property and restaurant is immaculate. The log cabin looking building is sharp looking and very fitting on what awaits you inside. Huge menu with lots of options. I thoroughly enjoyed my pulled pork sandwich. Can't wait til try it all. The owner is a... More

the last time i was in town 5 years ago i would have rated witts a 5 star but they have changed quite a bit! we had ribs that were tough and burnt, the pulled pork was sweet like candy- yuck!! the sides ranged from overly sweet to tastless.

This is a great local BBQ restaurant. I have eaten here about 5 times in the past few years, and have never been disappointed. If you like smoked and BBQ, this is a place to stop at. The also have a bar if you would like an alcoholic beverage. They also have lunch specials.

My niece and I had lunch together this afternoon. We ordered salads and the chicken bacon ranch pizza. The pizza was extra good. Our waitress kept our glasses full and brought us a to-go box for our leftovers.

We were traveling and spotted this on Trip Advisor. Since we love BBQ, we stopped. We discovered that they have a little more than BBQ on the menu. Deli items and such makes it a great place to stop if you are looking for variety. Food was better than average, although not my best BBQ stop. Décor was fabulous. Prices... More

This is a "take a chance" resturant. You take a chance that it's open and you take a chance on the food. There have been times when the meal was good and plentiful, and other times it was bad. The service is so-so. I've been there 3 or 4 times but I don't go out of my way to eat... More
