Good, authentic barbeque and darn tasty sides! A full slab of falling-off-the-bone ribs, good pulled pork, cole slaw and potato salad was $44 with tax, but we got three full meals out of it, quite a bargain! Nice staff, nice place too.

We stopped by on the recommendation of a friend. Ordered the ribs and wings. The ribs were meaty and tasty. Wings were tasty also. The young lady working the register and dining was amazing. Certainly stop by again

Can't say it is the best BBQ or service--plus the flies were unexpected protein potential--BUT it was a pleasant and affordable meal. I would go again. Had the pulled chicken salad, so I was able to eat virtuously and enjoyably. I have not been to...More
