I stopped at this small and old school restaurant on Trip Advisor's recommendation. The service was friendly and fast, the place has a great vibe to it, family run and been around for awhile.

My family likes to pick it up and eat it at home. It is well priced for what you get. There is years of tradition in that BBQ. Go hungry.
