We ate there last weekend for an early dinner. Kids had burgers, we had a two-person sampler of ribs, brisket, chicken, fries, beans, slaw and corn muffins--all excellent. We sat in the bar as we didn't have reservations and it was actually quieter in there, very pleasant atmosphere. Staff was super-friendly and helpful. Warning to parents: mac n cheese has jalapenos in it...delicious, but not for every kid!

My friend n I went there for lunch, last month. It was her first time there, and she was pleasantly surprised. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They bring homemade chips for you to sample the different types of BBQ sauce. There's pork, chicken, beef and fish. The decorations is rustic, like being in a hunting lodge.

We've been here a lot and usually the service and food is decent. There are items that are worth getting and sometimes a few to regret.

Our last experience here, however, wasn't very good. With a table of seven the waitress was extremely absent from helping us. Sadly sometimes this is what dampers the food, the service. Sometimes it is good. Sometimes it just isn't worth the money.

This is also a good place to go because it is not always busy.

We visited on March 18, 2016 for lunch we both ordered the 2 meat combo. Our waitress was Ashlee who was a doll. Food came quickly, and it was fresh and good. The two meats were the ribs and chicken. Total due was 23.71

We like the array of choices here but not necessarily how they turn out. The brisket was decent but not great, ditto for the beans. The coleslaw was, in fact, great. However, the mac and cheese would have been better labeled "creamy cheese soup with noodles," in that it was a liquid with macaroni floating in it. And the cheese flavor was mild to a fault. The ribtips were almost inedible. Well, some pieces were actually inedible. If we hadn't been in somewhat of a hurry I'd have sent it back. Trying to chew the dried meat risked breaking a tooth.
