My favorite place to eat on the Cape. The food is awesome, the service is attentive and the prices are insanely low for the quality and quantity of food. They have expanded by adding a small dining room with a view of the bowling.

I had the pork-brisket combo and my wife had the ribs-brisket combo. Both were tender, hot and delicious.
