This is good BBQ. Not the best I've ever had, but was good enough that I'd go back if I was in the area again. Not bad pricing for the quantity we got and it all tasted good. Give it a try!

Our server, Talara, was terrific and Paula at the checkout was extremely personable! A friendly place with fantastic BBQ! We split the sampler platter with baked beans, greens and an extra side of onion rings. Food arrived to the table HOT! We recommend highly!

No. We drink iced tea. Until recently we were a dry county. Don't think any restaurant has liquor license yet Oh forgot, Sahara steakhouse has one
