Dont you dare compare yourself to 2M smokehouse. My first trip here and when googled, it said something about the comparison. Brisket was not close to it. Nothing was very hot. The taste was not bad but little dry. The jalapeno corn was cold. Onion...More

The people couldn't have been sweeter, unlike the barbeque sauce, which was very tangy and had no sweetness at all! Overall, the food was just okay.
