This is a very good barbecue restaurant. The brisket was excellent. A note about the wait staff. All female. All dressed in extremely short bluejean shorts, extremely tight tee shirts, with an exposed midriff. Think: Hooters, Twin Peaks, Twisted Kilt, Bombshell. They were very friendly...More

Hooter like atmosphere. Waitresses were dressed very provocative with tattooed skin everywhere. Seemed more like a place for men and the guys not for family. Anyway the food was average bbq, very small portions for the price.

We had a lunch here recently. The service was just OK. We had to wait for beer and lunch. Staff was seemingly overwhelmed and it was not even full. Food/bbq was OK but not great like Smoky Jo's. We would not return.
