I have been eating here for years. The quality is good and the service is fast. They have the best beans of any BBQ place in town.

We love the ribs from this place! I drive an hour just to get the ribs. As far as the rest of the items, not so much. Especially the beef brisket. Just walk away, but get the ribs!!
