This place was awesome. Friendly staff. They explained the menu since it was our first time. Pulled brisket was different, but great. Ribs were good, as were the sides. And it's across the street from the Harley dealer. Definitely worth the stop.

Nothing really too wrong with the food, just nothing very good. Burlington Iowa has a wealth of decent places to eat for such a small community... this is not one of them.

I had the loaded baked potato. It was very good. Husband had chili and roast turkey. Chili tasted bitter and very spicey. The price is a bit high. $30. Loaded pot., dinner with 1 prem. Side and two drinks.
