Nice fast food type BBQ. They have a good selection of different meats and sides. The prices are reasonable. Came in very late and they waited around for us to finish. Very nice of the staff.

This is a good BBQ place with a number of options and sauces. Your meal comes out on a metal platter and service is fast. A good spot for family or for a few drinks with your BBQ.

Clean restaurant with great aromas the second you walk in. Great food. Definitely the best BBQ in McHenry county. TVS on the wall allow you to watch some sports while eating. Friendly service. Great briquette and sweet potato fries. Will visit again.

Nice quiet restaurant, good quality smoked foods at reasonable fair pricing. We have been here a few times and also have used their take out service. Good for a couples dinner date, family or just drop in for a quick bite.

First - get there earlier in the evening - the beef brisket goes FAST! You can get a plate or sandwich (lunch) and then have a chance to add sweet potato fries. DON'T pass on the beans - they are a mixture of several beans...More
