This restaurant is billed as a BBQ place but when we saw cheeseburgers on the menu we thought "why not?" since we had already had BBQ a couple of days this week. You should know that our benchmark for cheeseburgers is Dirty Martin's in Austin....More

Me and my husband stopped by for lunch and it was delicious. I had a delicious chop sandwich with a mouth melting potato salad. My husband had an amazing brisket and smoked sausage plate. Definitely a little hidden gem to stop by !
