This place has been around for a long time. Nothing fancy for dining at the kitchen, but the barbeque is really good and the take-away is a great way to have a quick dinner.

Small unpretentious place. A few tables in from of the grill. Choice based on BBQ rib, chicken and few more. Prices are cheap especially if you share the same chicken with 2 to 4 persons.

Live meat grilling in front of you! The chicken was delicious, tender on the inside, crispy skin. Very kind owner that made us feel welcome, and provided good service.

It's easy to miss but it's worth stopping here. The barbecue is fantastic… Pork beef brisket chicken all of it. Strongly recommend a meal here (or drive thru).
