Very good BBQ and a very unique out-door dining environment. A perfect stop if you are out on a Motorcycle ride.

Great place to eat! Have been there several times. Food is awesome and atmosphere is super cool. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because they only accept cash, no debit or credit cards. These days most people don't always carry cash.

Some of the best pulled pork I have had and their baked beans are wonderful. They use several types of beans and you find pieces of meat with them.

This is the best ribs in the area. It has all the sides you'd expect, and it's well worth the money. I always order big so I can take some home.

Five biker buddies rode up, down, and around the Catoctin Mountains to get here for lunch. Its all rather rustic, but besides the delicious BBQ, that is it's charm! First you order from a walk up window and then go a fixin's bar. Seating is...More
