Food was just ok. Portion size was a little disappointing. Bit of a dump. Friendly staff....they just don't know how to cook. We won't be back. Ever.

Found this little gem off the main street. Not crazy crowded. Great meats. Great sauces (with funny names) Huge portions. Extended family of 15 was pleasantly surprised.

Stopped in for a bite during our visit. Nice selection of food and reasonably priced. Good pulled pork and hot dogs. Recommend grabbing a sarsaparilla.

Pulled pork was awesome! The sides we're equally yummy! We ad potato salad and spicy beans. Must try when in Tombstone. Sweet Tea tastes like GA.😁
