The pork rib tip (I think that is what it was) was dry and hard to chew..but the other stuff was so good that I didn't... More

Yes, indeed. It is out of the way, but well worth the trip. We hadn't visited for a long time but stopped for lunch and shared the sampler plate. It was plenty for both of us and we brought leftovers home. The BBQ is great and worth of the awards it has garnered.

I have passed this restaurant many times, but never thought to stop until I read reviews. We decided to stop by at 6:00 on a Saturday night and the place was packed. Glad we didn't wait any longer! My husband had the sampler platter and I had the chicken breast. All of the meat was cooked to perfection and the... More

Corn bread muffin. 2 sides of Barbecue baked beans and Cole slaw. Oh my God! I really don't know were to start! The brisket was so juicy and... More

We went there for dinner Saturday and Had a great meal! We are partial to ribs so we ordered a full slab and split the order. More than enough food . For a small charge you can get the garlic fries as one side. The order is huge. The other side we ordered was their beans, really tasty and smokey.... More

We went with our friends on the way to Westport, WA. We ordered the BBQ Sampler Platter, a rack of Ribs and a side of spicy link hot sausage to split between the four of us. Of course, and beer. When it came, we didn't think we would be able to finish it. But, we sure did - every last... More

Ribs good but too much sauce on the rib. Meaty but limited flavor. Pulled pork tasty, oddly chopped but worth ordering. Had a second visit, did the pork sandwich. Bun was a waste of time but pork was good again. Cheap hamburger bun. Too soft. Chicken was fresh, well roasted but lacked flavor. Did a spike on the second visit.... More
