What else could you ask for. If I lived closer, I would be a regular customer. We had BBQ sandwiches that were very good. Tri tip was perfectly sliced. We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.

Get there before noon to enjoy the three piece band. The service was awesome, food was amazing. Not too long of a wait. About 30minutes for a busy Sunday. Well worth the wait.
