This is a small place so you might need to wait but it’s totally worth it. Try the Dirty fries for sure. Drinks are great and the barbecue is awesome! We will definitely return. Great for families!

It was a small bar restaurant with a not so clean vibe. The service fair. My husband ordered a rack of ribs and was very disappointed they were overbooked and fatty. The greens undercooked. The pulled pork sandwich was good. We would not go back.

I have eaten food from this restaurant 4 or 5 times between catered food for work and for a birthday party. Friendly staff and service. Located on PCH so not easy to get parking. Plenty of menu options and good BBQ.
