Brisket sandwich was very flavorful. Nice smoke ring, extremely tender and cooked to perfection. We go there a couple of times per month but usually get the pulled pork which is always good.

Spicy and perfect. The stew is only served in the fall and winter months. This is a drive through establishment, no sit down restaurant. The bbq is excellent and the service is fast. The cashiers are friendly and will answer questions about their menu items....More
