Only reason for 4 star rating - unreliable hours of operation. Used to be weekdays, and food was great. Situations change, and all.

This appears to be a one-person operation, and everything moves at his pace, which I've felt (from more than one visit) is more geared towards when they get around to it than being customer-focused. Location-wise, this is one of if not the closest dining places...More

Visited a number of times. The food is great and the service is great as well. I like BBQ and am from the south and this is good.

Service was real rude when I complained of under cooked pork which I'm sure caused me to get tapeworms

A friend said to be sure to stop here if we were ever visiting the area. One of the best decisions of our trip was trying it! We love ribs and these are just as good as the best ones we've had on the East...More
