This BBQ is just average. Just about everything we ordered was way over peppered. The brisket, beans, collard greens, etc. It is okay but I have had better. Maybe just a bad cook day. Might try it again??

Everything we had here was excellent. The portions were perfect and the tea was fantastic! This is now on the top of the list of my BBQ list! Don't pass this place up and go early because they sell out early!
