Party of 4. Excellent service. Had wings and were good. Not smokey but good non the less. Wife had potato skins and were fair, Guest with us split a brisket platter and was pleased. Again though, the service was grand.

As good a BBQ plate as you’ll get in the mountains. Several homemade sauces to choose from. Excellent service, LARGE servings, and reasonable prices.
