If this were in an area with lots of good BBQ choices (Texas for example) I would rate them below average. I can't say I've found better in the area though. The atmosphere and music are excellent ... good down home feel. I had the...More

$18+ for a two meat combo. Brisket was fatty! Smoke it with all the fat you want but when it comes to serving...trim that cut of meat up a little bit. I should have gotten another piece or two to make up for the fat...More

You will be surprised by this place = it used to be a McDonald's building, and it was converted over to a BBQ restaurant. ATMOSPHERE: Small place for sure. Smells AMAZING in there = best BBQ/smoky smell around. I'd suggest takeout, but although the place...More
