We stopped here for a quick meal on a road trip. We had two orders of ribs and one brisket. The brisket and one order of ribs were so delicious! Just amazing. But the other order of ribs was super charred and dried out.

Their menu price board had contradicting prices and one of them needs to be removed. The difference was about $5 for one pound. I was somewhat disappointed but ordered 1/4lb of brisket before I invested in a whole pound and was disappointed again as it...More
